fluorescent grow lights

i want to grow seedlings using fluorescent lighting as explained in garden action. what is the best wattage of tube? also can you enlighten me about full spectrum t8 daylight tubes and are they suitable.

Re: fluorescent grow lights

We use 58W ones about 45cm above the plants tops. Presumably lesser watts could be a little lower.

As for the t8 full spectrum lights, I've not tried them. But why not buy one and give it a try.It looks like they fit into the normal fluorescent light holders.
