I'm trying to grow cobra lilies from seeds I ordered off this site. I'm looking for an affordable option off Amazon for a stand for my light clamp. Does anyone know of any good options? Thank you for reading and have a nice day! 8-)

You can make just about anything with PVC pipe. Relatively inexpensive, and low cost to start up. Basically need the pipe, connectors, and some type of hand saw. You can connect whatever you want together and it'll hold most lights up without gluing together. If it doesn't work for you, or if your needs change, just take them apart and do it again. Like adult legos. If you think what you need is good to go permanently, glue it together for added stability. Paintable too.

Thanks for the replies everyone! I could make a stand. Wanted to be quick about it. I made a topic long ago, here's the link. post409394.html#p409394. The light clamp is somewhat light but the bulb is very heavy. Are there any stands that are heavier for this setup? Thank you again everyone, have a wonderful day! :D
