I final purchased a grow light for my planter box that I built last summer. It has two T5 high out blubs, and it is about 4 feet long. I have it on a timer with 10 hours on and 14 hours off.
I have planted swiss chard, spinach, cilantro, basil, and some random left over seeds. The problem that I am having is keeping the planter box warm during this time of year. However, seeds are starting to germinate.
I built the stand that the light is on from PVC pipping and buried it the box.
Here are some up close pictures of what I have growing. Off to work!
