I have three San Pedro that arent getting enough light inside. How big should the light I put on them be? Should I use fluorescent?

any additional light would be good, a south facing window is probably better

If they're doing sizeable ammounts of growing entirely inside, flouros arent going to cut it. You probably need actual grow lights.

well i bet if you used an array of compact flourescents it would probably do decently well.  if you had say 4 27w CF's ( 1750x4 lumens)then that would be equal to a low wattage HPS (around 70w maybe 5450 lumens).  But yea if you want to get serious about growing indoors then invest in a 1000w MH :smile:  Are you getting any abnormal stretching with the cacti?  Also what kinda light setup do you have now?

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

Tubes are better then CFL's. I plan to get a MH and run that for my cactus colection for winter but keep them outdoors spring-fall. If your just keeping tall pedros indoors for winter storage you can use floros at 25-40 w/ft and water less.

I have a heat lamp on them that I use for a lizard cage, like 75 watt. I have another 100 watt light bulb on them, on the package it says it covers more spectrum of light. I broke my fluorescent.

Nope, use cool floro tubes or sunlight. You can get a fixture for under $10, if not free used.
