Any indoor/grow light gardeners here?
What kind of plants ya’ll growin? What kinds of lights do ya’ll use? Any favorite brand? I mainly use grow lights indoors for my “special” succulents that I’m not about to leave out to the mercy of Louisiana. I mainly use various blurple full spectrum panels but I’ve had great results with CFLs, T8s, t5s, crappy $1 led “grow lights” from wish, and regular LED shop lights from walmart. Anyone have any preferences?
Anyone with any quantum board experience? How about pricier setups?
I know some other succulent growers who use the Mars Hydro TS but yo I’m succin on a budget and even though succulents need a lot of light I feel like even succulents only need so much light and I can get more area per watt with cheap 40-300 (true) watt blurple panels. If I were growing something like tomatoes indoors I might spring for a stronger, pricier light in order to get more light penetration lower down but to be honest I’ve grown 2-4 ft full sun plants under budget 300 watt blurples just fine (40 watts was a little too low for anything but seedlings/babies of full sun plants that I’ve tried) so I’m not sure if it would REALLY be worth it to spring for the pricier setups. At the same time I am super attracted to quantum boards because you can actually see what your plants look like vs with blurples where you really have to turn the lights off and take the plants out to get a good look at them.
