Growing vegetables and flowers indoors is not difficult. You need space and light. You can create your own growing station by using standard fluorescent fictures purchased at any home improvement store. You can use the fluorescent bulbs sold in these stores. There is no need to pay top dollar for grow lights systems or special grow light bulbs. For under $75, you can get a station set up.
Building Indoor Grow Lights for Seed Starting (In Pictures)
Step One: Select A Space
Step Two: Secure Boards For the Fluorescent Light Fixtures
Step Three: Buying the Fluorescent Light Fixtures
Step Four: Hanging the Fluorescent Lights
The next light goes in the front middle timber. This space requires two lights. The variance in brightness is due some to the bulbs but mostly to me using or not using the flash on my camera. I am a gardener, not a photographer.
Step FIve: Use Foil to Reflect Light Back In
I also have a front flap of foil attached. The growing area is now nicely wrapped in foil, mostly for maximizing light but it does help with warmth a bit too. You can see how bright the seed growing station is. It provides plenty of light without the expensvie cost of grow stations.
