Hello all My Names Jon
Well This My First Time Doing Something Like This in short I thought id try grow one
my favorite veggies indoors seeing how I have no place out doors to grow anything.

well I decided to do the hydroponic DWC; Maybe starting with just one plant or two
just to take it slow because I just wanted something different in my living room.

here deal my area I have is only 2ft x 4ft and about the lighting I chosen is
T5 Ho Fluorescent now I know 50% people swear by HID,HPS etc.. But Reason why
I Chosen T5 Ho Fluorescent & It Wont kill me to change them every 2years.

Here the Fixture I'm Planning To Buy; Hydrofarm EnviroGro T5 4FT 8 Tube
432 watts Rated up to 40,000 lumens; I'm Trying To Find Out With That Be Enough
To Flower & Fruit 1 to 2 Plants?

also here is some info about plants
Pepper, Sweet, Banana HEIRLOOM Height: 18-24 inches
Tomato Bush Early girl Height 18in (Determinate)
Cucumbers – Spacemaster Sun: Full Sun Height: 6-8 inches Spread: 26 inches

I See A lot About Lighting and 75% of It Is Chinese language to me lol it be lot easyer
