The right light for seedlings
I'm putting together a new seed starting unit in the basement. I have those plastic shelving units (2) that are 3' long by 2' deep, giving me 4, 6 foot shelves - enough space for 24 flats!
Planning to use 2 shop lights (4 tubes) per shelf. I don't have a light meter, but a single shop light (2 tubes) didn't seem like quite enough light.
What should I get for floresent tubes? There are expensive growlux and agro something...more reasonable seems to be GE Daylight - 40w at about 3800 lumins I think.
Your thoughts appreciated.
