How much light for indoor cactus?
    #1756921 - 07/28/03 07:05 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I've been thinking of getting a couple 2' or 3' flourescent grow lights and trying to get some cactus growing indoors. Would this be enough light?

The cactus would grow much quicker than outdoors, would it not? I figure I'd just give them 16 hours a day everyday on a timer. That way they'd keep growing through the winter.

Btw, I know Halide would be better, but I don't have the cash for a setup like that.

I would just put it near a window, no grow lights needed. I have a huge window and a shalf I have all my cacti at.

We've had this debate here before. Even cacti grown indoors or in the best of conditions year round/ say mexico perhaps/ will still have a period of dormancy. It might be reduced, but you'll still have periods of no growth. Anyone whose grown plants in those little antonius indoor greenhouse thing knows.
