Q&A – What Type Of Lighting Are You Using For Your African Violets?

Ms. Wyman asks Annie:

Q My question is about lighting, Which type of tube are you using and at what color temparture are yours?


A Hi Ms. Wyman,

Thank you for your question – I use T12 tubes.  They are all Sylvania Gro-Lux (which are often used as aquarium lights), which I like – I think they make the plants look better in my house  :-D  I am, however, just beginning to experiment with Day Warm LED lights on one shelf.  You will see this during the look at what’s on the stands.

I hope this helps,
Annie  :-)
