Need help for small shelve.

by Daedalux » Wed Oct 31, 2018 8:57 pm

Hello guys,

I'm preparing a small setup (60cm or so) to accommodate my baby cephalotus and some nepenthes and even some drosera, thing is, I'm confused in what type of light to buy, I wanted to buy a LED fixture of some kind to give them the proper lightning so they can thrive, but I don't have much to spend on it nor do I know a lot about it.

Any ideas of something that would work for cheap?

Thank you!

Well what's your budget? If you want to go the cheapest route you can get LED plant bulbs at Walmart for 5$. Otherwise I would suggest getting the Feit electric LED plant bulb at home Depot for 10$. The felt bulb is full spectrum and the Walmart bulb is only blue/red wave lengths. Both work good, but full spectrum has the upperhand. Also they plug into a normal house socket so a desk lamp would even work.
