Finally growing, tucked in the jungle here is the 1133 Yohe squashkin which will compete directly with some of my 541 seeds.

The plants like the hps bulb, its a lot like growing in Florida sunshine, although it costs 3x more to run than a strong LED would. HPS is costing me $1 a day not too bad, using it since Christmas = $100. (An expensive cherry tomato plant, they are ripe now and they are quite delicious, the quality is same as the best outdoor tomatoes, no joke!!!)

An LED would pay for itself in a few years. On the other hand, every LED I've ever had has broken within a few years.

The T-5s win for best all around setup. They score points for being pleasantly trouble-free, very little can go wrong.
