First my attempt with luminescent lamps was really weak: no, it was not enough to let my flowers grow. So, after 1 month has pasted, I can present my new system with: 1. Mercury lamps 125W each piece. 2. New metal lampshades that can resist these heat lamps. I am very proud of them, because I had never worked with sheet metals before. 3. New radiator for triacs (that operate on the quite powerful lamps).
I could not say that these lamps are very powerful: I checked, the resulting illumination of the ground is 5 times less than for the clean summer day in Saint Petersburg. But, it is enough to support my plants alive (they grow now quite well).
