    With lamp, Lithonia/Cooper for less than $80 off eBay, Orchids, Retama tree puppies, Gardenias are going to benefit from the added light in addition to the 5K +6,5K fluorescents + the HPS sodiums they've had to survive on despite having good window light. Probably buy another soon.

    Would those happen to be five leaved orchids? ;)

    Some are, some are not as I've got many varieties. I just need more light from the back than is present from the huge windows and I think the 175W MH will be sufficient given at 5k, 6.5K above & HPS angled from overhead. I'm a bit worried about my Retama trees at present as I'm out of the growing zone for them so they've got to be properly tempered in.
