Growing herbs indoors under lights

pvelNovember 1, 2011

I am planning to grow basil indoors under lights. I have no experience with grow lights. Would like to hear from anyone who has done this successfully. What is a simple economical setup to use? Thanks

You might try perusing the 'growing under lights' forum to get some basic ideas for light set-ups and see what others there are growing successfully. HTH

I tried the growing under lights forum. The discussion there is more technical than practical IMO. To answer my own question: I have ordered a Hydrofarm brand grow light kit including stand from Amazon for $56.It includes a T-5 High Ouput light. The reviews are good and I am looking forward to my new indoor herb garden
