Q: I live in a NW-facing basement apartment and really love having indoor plants. There are some fluorescent lights here and I was thinking about putting in grow lights, but for some reason I always associate grow lights with growing marijuana, maybe it is from my time in Vermont. Unfortunately, I live in a really conservative part of the country and I don't want my neighbors to think that I am growing weed. Do you have suggestions for a brighter light that isn't "marijuana lightish"? -Sent by Maeve

Editor: Funny—I was just considering rigging up some kind of grow light in my kitchen to grow herbs in the winter, so I'm looking forward to the ever-so-wise readers' suggestions, too. Take it away, readers!
