Special lamps or anything else?

14 years ago

Hi everyone!

I would like to start growing cherry tomatoes under lamps. So I was thinking that I should use some sort of artificial light because where I live, there aren't much light during the winter. I have read a lot about all kind of special lamps. Mostly I am interested in using compact fluorescent lamps. I have also read from gardening forums that not all people are using special lamps, that emit a lot of red and blue spectrum. Light is light and plants should use all kind of light. Is it true or should I still use special lamps? Special lamps are also much more expensive and harder to find.

I hope that someone can help me with this question.
