most plants can be grown in 'low light' (1WPG) as long as CO2 and NPK+traces are up to scratch.

I have had HC growing at 1WPG with 35ppm of CO2 and heavy fertilization.

True. But I think the only way to get 35ppm of CO2 is to inject it. I think the point is, if you're not going to add CO2 then you better keep the light below 2watts per gallon or you'll have algae problems. (please, let's not go there) If you keep the light below 2watts per gallon then there's only certain plants that will grow.

True if ferts and CO2 arent being used, but algae may be present if the lighting is above 1WPG

Even though the WPG isnt a very good way of doing things seeing as its based on T12's
