Grow Light Shelf Setup

Your setup will depend on your level of interest and commitment, space, and budget. You might use a combination of equipment and setups. Shelving, closets, and countertops all hold plants in my house.

Young seedlings, houseplant cuttings, African violets, medium-temperature orchids, and cooler-season vegetable crops occupy indoor areas at any given time year-round. I also have a couple of previously unused indoor closets that work nicely for tucking away crops that like a bright spot in the 65°F to 85ºF (18–29°C) range without exposure to very hot or cold temperatures.
