Growing seedlings indoors with lights

Jim I understand we should use one hot and one cool light. Silly
question, but how do we tell the difference (they are called "warm" & "cool" in the stores - JK)??

Second question: Indoor lights provide 50% of the needed light - that is why we should have them on for 18 hours versus 8 (probably not that much, but it's the best you can do - jk)?

Is it ok to have the lights on longer, perhaps 20 hours (sure, just get up at 3 A.M. and turn them off (-: - jk)? Is there a schedule of hours, like 18 then 17 then 16 we should use before transplanting to the garden (not really, and if there were it would get longer, rather than shorter - jk)?

If people want more information Jim set up a page on the main FFEF
website (it's called the FAQ section, with articles on indoor growing - jk), and we also have a Squidoo lens at the following address - http://www.squidoo. com/growlights

As always, Thank you Jim and Happy Holidays to everyone.
