gave a friend a seed starter from the 60's
it has 2 westinghouse agro lite tubes probably the originals.
she uses it every year.
with that duty cycle she can probably hand it down when she passes.
i used a 14w ge daylight in a chrome wall fixture i 12v converted till i knew just how old it was.
40's lamp and tube.
that tube is safely in my collection.fixture has a chroma 50 in it.still 12v.
but i made no permanent mods to it and have the original parts.
even reused existing holes for the led nightlight.
