    Hey all! I’m looking to set up a small indoor grow area, for a patch of grass or a few vegetable plants. All windows in my house totally suck for any natural light for growing. I have a T5 fluorescent 2 ft 2 bulbs. Works great for germination but But looking for examples of set ups for after germination. Wondering if anyone could post some photos of their set ups?

    Far for germination and move closer for growth

    Man.... The vids and charts I went off before showed the light no more than 6 inches from soil....so I did that and moved the light up as they got taller... but then they grew just straight up and not too leafy (okra). So I knew I was doing something wrong. Do you find those LED lights shown in the chart to be better?

    I don't know if this would be useful, but I've found some success working with indoor plants... Like grape ivy, aloe vera, spider plants, air plants, hibiscus, oat & other grasses :)
