    You could invest in 'Grow-lights", but I find it works just as well to buy one warm-spectrum bulb and one cool-spectrum bulb for each light. And it's cheaper.

    Wal-Mart carrys the actual grow lights that will fit in the shope lights you buy from mendards. They usually only have a couple on the shelf it seems at one time thats been my experience.
