As it's getting nippy here in Cleveland, Ohio, I moved some container plants from outside to my basement. I attached a pic, the big plants in back are stevia (which isn't doing too good) and cilantro. Smaller ones are chives, more stevia, and a green pepper plant. I may want to try some patio tomatoes too, but I don't have that plant yet. Presently there's 2 15 watt fluorescent grow lights on the plants, and limited window light. I know I'll need something a little brighter, but cheap. Any recommendations? Higher wattage fluorescent tubes? Compact fluorescents? I can't afford HID's and the like. I probably have about a 5 X 4 foot area right now, but would like to expand a foot or two each way. Thanks much.
