I got these from the local college. They were used in a plant growth chamber at the horticulture farm.

Preheat Fluorescents forever!
I love diesel engines, rural/farm life and vintage lighting!

Back in the 70's, this lamp had gold end caps and a sun logo along with the typical 70's etch.

Preheat and T-12 fluorescents forever! Down with LED's and instant start T-8 fluorescents.

Wow a VHO grow light eh? Prolly would give me headaches from the intense purple light at high light levels VHOs make, LOL! This is a WS version, prolly not as bad tho.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

Wide spectrum fluorescents is not efficient of plant growing because it produce wavelengths that the plants are not see. This reduce the effectiveness of the lighting until the sun spectrum is used as the sun is a natural light source and doesn't consumes wattages. Fluorescents with purple color that have phosphor bands only in the rad and blue part of the spectrum are the best choice for plant growing with fluorescent light, because they are produce only the wavelengths range that the plants using for photosynthesis. The beauty of the light color with these lamps is not important.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Interesting...These were used in a plant growth chamber. There are probably around 60 lamps in these things. It is 10' x 10' x 10'

These came from a growth chamber at the horticulture department at the local college. Son of a gun has around 60 of these in it. They do experiments with germination of different seeds and experiment with various growing conditions.

I did an experiment with seeds using a 125w mercury lamp, a 70w metal halide and a 70w sodium. The sodium won, since plants like red and orange, yet strangely the metal halide lost considerably behind the mecury, even though their spectrum are nearly the same.
