I bought this lamp when I was in high school for a science symposium project. It took me to regionals.

I grew plants. I had a 4-compartment cabinet with plants growing under 4 20-watt fluorescent lights: cool white, soft white (WWX), gro and sho, and the vita lite. If I remember correctly, the soft white plant grew the tallest, the gro and sho and the vita lite plants grew about the same and the cool white plant died.

Yeah, I'm also doing a science fair project like this currently...But mine is strictly grow florescent/LED/tropical-daylight, warm white florescent and cool-white florescent. So far my cool white plant has shriveled up and died, but I might try again. My warm white plant seems more structural/non-leggy/tall like the cool white one but otherwise normal and the one growing under GE Plant/Aquarium florescent/LED growlight/THORN "Tropical Daylight" is flourishing.
My setup isn't as neat as yours though...it;s all in one room and I'm sure the light types "overlap".
What plants did you use? I'm doing celery plants since they're easy household waste products (just take the leftover stalk, plant it in soil, water and voila).
Is it alright with you if I cite this page as a reference/info source for my project?

The cabinet I used a common upright fiberboard cabinet that was "borrowed" for the duration of the project. The plants were small cheap houseplants from Freddies, though I don't remember the type. You can cite it if you want, but I don't remember most of the details. The only result I remember is that the WWX plant grew the tallest and one of the others died. The report may be somewhere on an old Mac formatted floppy that may or may not still be readable, if I could even find it.

Well thanks for the info anyway...from what I understand it was likely the cool-white plant that died and the soft white/WWX that grew decently well...in essence your results sound about right.
I might post some pics of my setup eventually...

I've since taken that lamp out of use since it's not my only 15w 18" lamp as of now.
Icefoglights, I totally thought of you and this pic when I scored a pair of the 4' PowerTwist version of this yesterday! (Which probably came from a SBS originally).
