Cornplant is the infamous "Dead Plant from Hopper's." It had died down to just one small sprout, and sat behind the counter for many months. When Hopper's went out of business in August 1994, we hacked off the tall dead log with one of the big kitchen knives, and I took it (the plant, not the log) home, put it on the patio (which I seldom frequent) and promptly forgot about it. After a year or so, I happened to notice it had quietly gone about growing and was now about 2' tall. I brought it inside during a hard freeze, and it has been on the table next to the computer ever since.
The Colonel, Hans, Greuber, Herr Flick, and Von Smallhausen are named after characters in a mid-80's BBC sitcom called "'Allo 'Allo", set in German-occupied France during WWII. [Hans died Sept. '96, Greuber died Oct. '96]
The GE 50R20/PL is a 50 watt incandescent bulb in an R-20 reflector flood package (same size as a standard light-bulb, but shaped like an Erlenmeyer flask) - the /PL suffix denotes a "Plant Light" coating. - from the Gro & Sho line
The GE FLB17 is a 16 watt 4-tube cool white compact fluorescent array with a 700 lumen output (compare to a 60 watt incandescent). It is adjusted to simulate Soft White by enclosing it in a glass bulb with a color-correcting coating and contains a ballast/starter in the base. - from the Light System 2000 line
The GE 40A/W-ALIRC is the standard 40 watt Soft White bulb (490 lumens). - from the Lightstyles for Lifestyles line
The GE F15T8-KB is an 18" fluorescent tube (1" dia.) in the Kitchen and Bath color. - from the Kitchen and Bath Ultra line
The Philips F15T8/CW is an 18" fluorescent tube (1" dia.) in cool white.
The GE F20T12-nn is a 24" fluorescent tube (1.5" dia.), where nn is CL for cool white or WW for Warm White.
The generic T-3 type is a 118 mm quartz-halogen tube; I think this one was mfg. by either TDK or Sylvania.
