Fluorescent fixture and extention cord

Posted by dowlinggram (My Page) on

I have a fluorescent fixture for growing plants. It takes 2 T8 32 watt bulbs. I would like to add a second fixture. Unfortunately where the fixtures must be located is not near an outlet so here's what I propose to do.

Plug both fixtures into an old computer power bar. Plug the power bar into a 25 foot outside 3 pronged extention cord. Plug the extention cord into the timer in the outlet. It this feasible or dangerous. I am hoping to come up with a better solution but for this year would this work. (If it's iffy I'd rather not take a chance
