Footcandles is a measurement of the intensity of light. Greenhouse plants will need a specific amount of light (measured in foot candles) for 14-16 out of every 24 hours period. For a more in-depth discussion of foot candles and plant needs, here's a publication you might find helpful: http://extension.unh.edu/Agric...

Best wishes with your hobby greenhouse!
