This is my first attempt to OW some 1st-year Chinense plants. I have them pruned and potted up as per Guru's recommendations, but my budget is a small one, and I wonder just how little light I can give my 4 OW plants to just keep them alive until I "advance the throttle" in February.
ATM I have 2 droplights with reflectors that each have 23 watt 5000k CFL bulbs lighting a roughly 8 sq. ft. area. They're both on a timer set for 8 hours on and 16 hours off. Should I keep the light levels at this setting, or can I go even lower?
I should mention that the plants are in my cellar, where there is no ambient light... just what I provide artificially.
Thanks for your input!
