MIGHT SOMEONE EDUCATE ME AND TELL ME ABOUT INDOOR GROW LIGHTS.
IS WATTAGE MOST IMPORTANT?
ARE RED AND BLUE LIGHTS BETTER ?

Father, what are you using now? Some of your pictures seem to indicate you are using LED.

I use both led red and blue plant lights and white spiral full spectrum plant lights.

Father, you might like to read two of the articles I published a couple of years ago concerning light's affect on plants.

Typically, you would want to use a ratio of 5:1, red:blue when using LED lighting. You should not be nearly as interested in the development of flowers as you are in development of roots and leaves. Your spiral "white" light may be similar to a 6500K, fluorescent bulb, but I don't know this.
