Hello Mitch,

Growing tropical plants in Montana can be tough! In a small office your best option would be a T5 (Tubular ⅝”) lighting system.These systems are immensely efficient, producing almost 100 lumens per watt while limiting heat production (which is just wasted energy). This means that you can put your more light demanding plants very close to the source, without worrying about burn. T5 bulbs are also long lasting, having a 10,000 hour life and come in vegetative and blooming spectrums.

Good luck!
