Basic Grow-Light Closet Design: The Right Lighting

Basic Grow-Light Closet Design: Lighting Intensity


You can design your grow-closet in a 1000 different ways depending on your space and needs. The key, no matter what design, is the right intensity of lighting. I use fluorescent bulbs as do most grow-light closets.

The key as described in the video is to keep your bulbs 1-2 inches above the soil/starting mix when seeds are germinating and 1-2 inches above the leaves for your future transplants.

Poor lighting creates 'leggy' seedlings and transplants. You can also use foil to reflect light back towards the seedlings and keep warmth in, for germination.
