Hi All,

I placed some plants in my OHF last compartment to help balancing the ammonia level. A clip on 11W PL lamp is on for 12Hrs daily. Plants are growing well. happydance.gif They are from a LFS in Serangoon North $6/pc.

BB thrive best in zero-light environment so your clip-on light may not be good.

Check out bro frankie's setup. He uses money plants which thrive well indoors.
