Countertop Grow Lights

March 18, 2019

Many countertop lamp setups allow you to grow small edibles, such as microgreens, small lettuce transplants, small herbs you keep snipped, and seedlings you plan to transplant outdoors. They typically take up only 2 to 3 square feet of space, and they may fit under your kitchen cabinets.

I installed these cool full spectrum grow lamps with small reflectors under cabinets to support small herbs and lower light houseplants.

Just remember that as plants grow and reach the lamp they may burn, so harvest herbs and transplant seedlings before they get too tall.
