Newbie Grow Light Set-up
Threw this together with $29.99 Ikea shelves. Two units joined into one measures 62" x 24". Two MaxLume 4' 4 bulb T-5's. A couple packs of plant pulleys, a couple 2' x 4' white marker boards, a power strip and a timer. I might tighten up and add another shelf and light. For now, just starting out with some Marigolds, Gazinias, Coleus, some Peppers and Lettuces.
I really like the wood and the openness for air, the storage above and below, and the comfort of 62" instead of standard 48". The pulleys was the best move, and the marker board is easy to clean.
Thanks to all out there for all your ideas. From your posts I took bits and pieces and made my plan. Really looking forward to filling it with Tomatoes soon............
