    Interesting, you grow all your plants in a basement with artificial light. At the moment I have the problem that September and Oktober were very warm, so instead of my plants getting hardend and stopped growing, new roots appeared and shoots are growing now and its still autumn and the winter is worst in the netherlands, not enough light. So I'm thinking about artificial light to get them through the winter. What does 500W HID means?
    Thanks in advance,
    Maurice

    Maurice, all my warm-intermediate growers will be outside for the warmer months then winter over in the basement. Cool growers will stay in the basment year round. I also have excellent humidity and good water...If anyone wants to grow things in the basement under light, go for it! but keep this in mind, not all basements are the same(for example, humidity and temperature). You may need some other eqipments if your basement natural condition is not up to the standard(the growing condition you/plants like)

    ~HID, Metal Halide and sodium light. Google HID Light and you will find lots of information. Those are big grow light and it may not be suitable for all situations. I hang my light unit 7 feet up and I still need some shading for lots of my plants, so do some research...

    Growing a small one on a small piece of bark make me lost my Leptotes unicolor. When it was blooming I took it out to take a picture,and then forgot where I had put it. After that I never see it even the bark.
    Great growing,Tom!

    Really an eye candy, a beauty! It looks like all leptotes have upside down flowers.
