Gro lux fluorescent lights.

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have grown chillies for a number of years, starting super hot varieties around Xmas under gro lux lights to extend their season. 

I'm not bothering with mental varieties this year,so I have a grow box sitting idle.

I was thinking of using it to start some sarracenia seedlings in.

The lights are the closest I could find that simulate sunshine, and they keep the temp in the box around 26 degrees.It stays fairly humid but still has good air flow.

As I'm new to this, do you think this would give my seedlings a nice head start,as ive read they can do without dormancy in their first year,or should I just wait and let nature take its course.

Any advice gratefully received.
