Hi, i'm really not sure if this is the appropriate place, if its not im sorry and please delete.

I have some new plants that I would like some help getting a light for.

I had a cactus when I was younger that I had for 7 years before he died due to my move into my current apartment that has no access to light.

Today I was gifted some bamboo and some cactus and I'm basically looking for some help on lighting.

I was looking into this light and was wondering if that would do for the plants.

I've included some pictures of the plants I was gifted.

The single cactus on the far right was close to the one I original kept for those 7 years.

Welcome. Where do you live? Might make a difference. Cactus under lights is kinda iffy. IMO, most efficient light is T5 HO, 6500K. If I lived in an apt. w/o natural light I'd grow other things than cactus. Gene
