This weekend I Want to spend somewhere between $100-$300 on a LED grow light fixture for my VFTs. I need red, blue and white lights that will cover plants within at least a 2ft x 3ft space, while not requiring the light to be situated more than 18” above the foliage. Also would it be OK to briefly shut down the color led light fixture from time to time and switch to an additional all white led fixture so I can view or show off my plants to guests as they actually appear?
