Question: Can you say "germination station" with a HAL 2001 spaceship accent?
Answer: Ha! No, you can't! We copyrighted it!
On the bottom shelf, we have 400 mixed solanaceae on top of a heat pad and under a LED. Even with the heat pad, I think the basement's cool temps is slowing them down.
On the top shelf, we have four distinct light zones. From fore to background, we have compact fluorescent (not lit), a T-5, a LED, and concluding with another compact fluorescent.
I know it sounds like a complicated mess, but I'm trying to figure out what's the best/most easiest/convenient/cost effective lights to use over the long run. Main factors include ease of hanging, ease of moving/rehanging, quality of light, upfront costs, costs over time (energy), and duration. I will report over time. For now, I got 2000 sprouts to be watering.
