Countertop Lettuce with Grow Lights

November 5, 2018

In my garage, you’ll find several large HO T5 hanging fixtures and full-spectrum LEDs for overwintering large-foliage plants and citrus trees, plus growing herbs, leafy greens, and cut flowers. I also have several shelves with T5s for seed starting and small houseplants, along with lights about my indoor potting bench countertop.

In the summer, I do a lot of vegetative propagation in these areas. In winter, I jump-start seeds of warm-season crops for the winter grow tents and outside garden, and grow extra cold-tolerant plants indoors.
