Yes.

BTW, what exactly do you mean by "grow bulbs"? If you're talking HPS, MH, or HID lights, than that is overkill! Incandescent/flourescent bulbs are all that you need. :wink:

75 watts will create a lot of heat. Christmas lights are great (IMHO). Get the blue ones.

Will shooting light through a blue painted light bulb actually be blue spectrum oriented light? I've wondered about this before. I kind of doubt it is higher in the blue spectrum, but I could be wrong.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

it wouldn't be higher in the blue spectrum... the light creating it is a white light and the blue colored plastic filters out all the other colors and lets blue through. So essentially you are losing many kinds of light, but supposedly you only need a certain wavelength to trigger mushrooms

You need more like a 15 watt nightlight for a casing...small compact flouros work even better (again a 15 watter). You dont need reflector dishes or anything either..these do not go through photosynthesis and only need light to trigger them to grow and to tell them which direction to grow.
