After seeing Ron Wallace and Steve Connolly light setup I decided to post what I did. Grabbed a few things laying around in the pumpkin shack. Clip on light, 16 gallon tote and bought three 75 watt spiral light bulbs that are 6500K. 6500K is almost the same as the light we get from the sun. Not nothing fancy. But after doing a search on the internet, 6500K light bulbs make a huge difference on plants. This year plants are the best I've ever had. Short and stocky and very healthy
