I started looking for a simple light to assist seedlings/small plants I'm growing in an almost clear plastic bin near a window.
The price range is certainly amazing. The mechanical, quality and build differences are obvious. If my only goal is to grow plants (primarily seedlings and some annual flowers), is the light on these significantly different?
I can't believe plants will grow 100x with the $850 than the $7 (assuming plants to be planted in the front yard, not sold out the back door)
So, could I get 60% of the benefit of a $850 from a $7 light strip?
