LED Lighting

We used a FEIT Performance LED 16w flood bulb (Replaces 75w) to provide lighting for this interior Floraframe Full-24 Pocket Panel filled with Tropical Varieties. We are testing to see if the light provided by the bulb will be sufficient to allow them to continue to thrive. This wall has been growing under a 50W hallogen bulb for 9 months up to this time.
