New shelving; New lights?

by DeaNyx420 » Tue Jan 22, 2019 5:36 pm

Recently got new shelves for my collection. I've changed up my lights a bit in terms of where they are. Image


I now have a single 2 bulb T8 fixture on each of the lower two shelves. ImageImage

The top shelf has a single 4 bulb T5HO fixture.

With the upgrade in shelving I've been pondering upgrading my two 2 bulb T8 fixtures but am unsure if I should go with more T5s or something different.

Does anyone have any recommendations or thoughts in regards to how I could further improve on my set up?

So I have 'zones' each shelf has different lighting and each shelf is a different height so I really have 5-6 lighting choices I can match plants to.

That's an excellent idea and I think I'll be doing this very thing. Need to rearrange a bit in terms of shelving height but I already have a game plan. Thank you!!
