What's the diff between a "full spectrum" bulb and a "grow light" aka
horticulture light? UV rays?
I want to buy a 9 watt compact flourescent grow light for my pothos
plant. That fits into a regular light socket. where could I get
that? 9 watts, small I know, it'll be right under the plant tho...
Grow lights have their colours adjusted to make plants grow and bloom
better than the same total energy in "white" light.
Full spectrum lights are intended to simulate sunlight with respect to
proportion of different colours (wavelenghts).

Should be none. All UV should be absorbed and reradiated at visible
wavelengths or absorbed by the tube's phosphors. UV serves a plant no
purpose, and in fact destroys living cells or damages their nucleii.
stuff looks good under a grow light. but a plain old fluorescent has teh same
spectrum as sunlight, just not as intense or heavy in the red end. the
photosynthetic centers use mostly light in the blue and some in the red end.
save money and get cheapest and most intense. Ingrid

No extra light is required to grow a Pothos. They thrive under
whatever light is available in the room. If you require lighting in
the room then by all means but if you are intalling lighting for a
Pothos, forget it.
