Close. I just don't understand why the plants haven't grown bit since I put it up. I think I will sell these to banana growers on eBay.
For more info call BR549. It's a party line but should be able to get through.

No but it can be an option.

Looks like it might be too bright. I see some leaf burn on the edges. Try moving the light farther away, or use a smaller less wattage bulb.

I think you're right. Never thought about that. Couldn't understand why all the leaves look like hell. I'll try both a smaller bulb and move it a little further away. You're the only one that pointed that out.
Thanks so much,

Thanks so much,
I've been watching and waiting for someone to suggest the obvious: lower watt bulb in one of those light sensor night lights. This ensures that no more light than is needed will be provided thus leaf burn will not occur. Your electric bill will be smaller. And, most important, your sweet Musa gal will not get overstimulated this winter.
