Things are growing well in the light it gets from a north facing window and the light from my desk lamp.
I used pothos, begonia, anthurium (see the flower?), dumb cane (beware of the sap, my skin reacted badly to it), two Dracenas, purple waffle plant that lost its purpleness, and pilea.
Wow there's water underneath all that right?
