Plant Lighting?

Postby JDAqua on 18 May 2016 18:32

Any recommendations on a good affordable light to use for growing plants in my 60 liter? I currently have a 18 inch T8 light.

It depends on what plants you want to grow.
Theres a lot of easy/ low light plants that would grow under that light.

I'd go with T5's, rather than T8's. I think seahorse do a T5 unit for about €50 that would suit. Alternatively, LED lighting is pretty good too. But it all depends on what you want to spend!

Make it idiot-proof, and someone will make a better idiot
