Growth from germination after 30 days indicating the efficiency of relatively cheap LED lamps from the local hardware store.These lamps are cool running and should revolutionize home growing under lights.

The light used is a LED, 18 watt consumption, (90Watt equivalent) bright white,1500 lumens from Home Depot.. About $20.00. There were some similar but slightly less wattage. No heat emitted to be a problem. The fitting is a trouble light used on cars . The bucket is a 23 liter pail with a small fan for air movement in the bottom with some holes burned in the bottom of the pail. I used a cheap soldering iron to make the vent holes.

I had to rebuild this year and considered LED tubes, but just couldn't bring myself to get rid of the tried and true T12 fluorescents. As many flats as I grow I need the tubes rather than the spotlights and the fixtures are a little pricey. If one of the shop lights ever stops working I will replace with LED. T12 bulbs are supposed to be hard to find, but not here, so...

http://durgan.org/2017/March%2... 26 March 2017 Black Krim to larger pots
The cup pots were getting too small for the Black Krim tomato plant roots, so were moved to larger pots. The pots were placed in containers to facilitate bottom watering. Plants will be kept in the greenhouse until ready for outdoor planting about 25 of May. They are on a heating pad, since the greenhouse is inadequately heated if temperature falls much below freezing.
