Interesting about the CF fluorescent bulbs. I'll try a couple above house
plants in the east window of my sunroom where the light is weak.
Mark, if your tomato plants were leggy, they may have not been close enough
to the light source. It should always be about 2 inches above plant tops.
Also, air from a fan to move their stems is important. The hormone released
is what makes stems thicker. I've never had leggy tomato plants or any
leggy plants when I use the lights close to the plant and have air moving
One thing I forgot to write in my original post is that the fluorescent
lights need to be on 16-18 hours daily. Use a cheap timer to simplify
