Previously, I mentioned that my LED grow light system was not working out well. The plants were too leggy and were not maturing as fast as they should. I broke down and purchased a new light system before the next round of seedlings need to be started (which will be this weekend). I ordered a single-shelf fluorescent grow light system from Gardener’s Supply. I love it! I am still bummed about the LED system not working out because it uses less electricity than the fluorescent bulbs, but clearly the technology is not quite there yet. All you need to do is look at the pic above and compare. The seedling on the left was grown under the LED lights, and the seedling on the right was rescued from the LED system and has spent a week under the new grow light system. Huge difference.
Well, I’ve got a busy gardening weekend ahead. Can’t wait to get outside tomorrow.
