Thanks everyone, and to this community in general for helping me learn (and to FTS for supplying these superior monsters)!

I have them on a 4ft shelf with a 4ft fluorescent light fixture attached to the bottom of the shelf above. It's just 2, 32w, 6500k, GE "Daylight" bulbs. They were cheap at Walmart...so cheap they probably won't stay strong long. My soil level is 4-5" from the bulbs. I'd like to add another fixture with some bulbs in more of the red spectrum just to mimic outdoor life better but for now it's just these two. I have the light on a timer and, as I mentioned, I think I was up to 18 hours per day in the summer.
Once the UV index outside drops and I've got my artificial lighting photo period shortened down some more, I'm going to transition them to sunlight for the winter because my office (where they are now) won't get cold enough. The nice thing about having them indoors is I can enjoy them more throughout the day while I work!
