View Full Version : help with lights

09-25-2008, 11:01 AM
I live in wisconsin and would like to keep alive, 3 banana plants, 2 orange trees and 2 pepper plants over the winter. They are all in pots and the bananas would be the tallest at about 5 feet tall. I am wondering what kind of lighting would keep them growing the best. I was looking at sun systems 800 watt dual spectrum. I need recommendations. Thanks much, Kevin

That should keep your plants alive. The area that you are talking about is fairly large I would go no less than 800W. Also a good idea is to raise the shorter plants to match the banana trees that way you don't have shading and get more light to them. If you are not trying to fruit, you could also look into a 1000W MH system.
