Interesting article ... Micro-Einsteins? Something totally new to me and it never occurred I could use halogen bulbs.

Anyone starting seeds up for a cross country experiment?

Einsteins are new to me too!
But that must be an older chart as it just goes to T12s
and not info on T8s or the newer T5s.

That graph makes no sense. >100 % (not possible) - Y scale. Unless I am reading something wrong.
Micro-Einsteins - certainly not often used. Green Grin!

Good observation! I had not noticed that!
I suppose the test for any light source is:-
whether the plants that we are trying to grow, really grow under it.
Some like the bright lights,
and others are happy with less light or even reflected light.
