🤔 I've been thinking on purchase one of those grow lights have you been using them long? It's sure doing a good job. 👌

@lamaisonbleueoleron I've been using for a few years, so now have a small collection of 7! I use dual spectrum HPS, which give both blue and red spectrum for flowering and foliage growth. Some of my plants have never seen "real" sun, so they have to be gently eased in when going in the garden!! I think they're great, all my tropicals grow/flower all winter long including plumeria. I also growing mangoes, lychee, guava, Annona, eugenias, starfruit etc all under lights. Ps not had a fruit yet!!😎

DrNicko should have warned you Steve... He's having to move house because of his 'addiction'... Which has been aided and abetted by said grow lights... You have been warned!! 😉 @lamaisonbleueoleron

Grown from seed, now 2 months old. Looking good already. Planted in "gritty mix" homemade soil.
