alright SO this is an ongoing experiment ,
Growing vfts inside plastic tubes,
So far the results are promising , they
seem to grow alittle faster and with brighter colors,
This is done indoors under LEDs ,
never tryed this outdoors under direct sunlight,
but i imagine it would cook them :?
Plastic tubes are light covers purchased from the HOME DEPOT.

That's a very interesting experiment!Are you kipping the tubes shut with lids,or just leaving them open like that?
