  1. I enjoyed the article, “How to start vegetable seeds indoors”. I have several fluorescent lights in my house that I thought I would use but you do mention that you need full-spectrum (daylight) bulbs. I take it, these bulbs are different that everyday fluorescent bulbs and to be effective the full-spectrum bulbs are necessary.

    Thanks,
