Sorry for the delay here. I'm in z5, and use ordinary fluorescent lights
(4' "shop" lights) over the pond plants, although the basement is fairly

what zone are you in and what type of fluorescent do you use?

One of the key benefits to your plants in winter, when spring comes, next year you will have a fully mature plant, and not just planted the seed, which means you will have a mature pepper pods much earlier. In addition most pepper plants will be more important to their second or third year than their first.

Floating aquatic plants such as water lettuce pond need to be carefully removed, stored in winter in a greenhouse or frost-free greenhouse. Other floating plant species such as water soldiers will be happy to sink into deeper depths of the pool in search of a warm home before frost sets in.

My WH lasted the winter, but were searching a little amber by the end. I had 140 watts of CFL lighting. Problem was the GF ate all the roots. I anticipate if I'd add some Potassium they would accept had a bigger adventitious of outgrowing the GF.
