Answer

Yes, but a minimal effective light system of four 48-in. fluorescent bulbs is needed. Two of these bulbs should be warm light tubes and two should be cool light tubes. Allow 4-6 in. between the top of the plants and the fluorescent light tubes. Alternatively, the new full-spectrum fluorescent bulbs can also be used.
