Newbie looking for help
Forgive me for not just sitting down and researching on my own, but the family has just moved into a new house. I'm exhausted and my plants need light soon. No time for research.
I need some small grow lights (about 3 feet long) for growing hoyas and orchids, possibly the odd begonia. I have a plastic shelving unit I was hoping to put the plants and some kind of grow lights on. Can someone steer me in the right direction for lights? The local shops have Lightblaster T5's HO. Are they what I am looking for? Is so, how far above the plants should they be? How many tubes per tray?
I really am embarassingly new to this, but would appreciate someone walking me through setting up a small system. The plants are okay at the moment, but have been sitting on a dark floor for a week now...
