Grow light set ups are confusing for many home gardeners. In this video, I’ll make it easy by sharing my 3 favorite quick and simple indoor grow light set ups and explain the basics of lumens…


  1. Hi Kim, I'm new to planting edibles, this past Fall was the first time and I just planted outside. This is great information for older person (56) just getting started on growing a garden for food not just flowers. Thank you, info much appreciated and explained very well! πŸ˜‰

  2. Hi Kim, I set up your grow box suggestion last season and it worked great. However, this season I've planted several pepper seedlings that sprout but then appear to be dying shortly after going into the grow box. This has happened to my last 6 seedlings and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. They seem to look good for 1-3 days in the grow box and they almost appear to be burning b/c they turn Brown and the leaves shrivel up. I've been putting the jiffy pellets right in the grow box after the seeds sprout roughly 3-4" from a 6500 Kelvin CFL. Any suggestions or ideas on what I might be doing wrong?

  3. I got some glass 120w equevelant LED floodlghts from Lowes this year that I'm really liking. I have my pepper plants under then and they are growing great! I'd like to get rid of my T12's but they still work fine too. I use 4 tube t-12 fixtures on my plant stand (as seen in my previous videos).

  4. The K and L explanation was great thank you for taking the time to do so. I hope to do a follow up video reminding gardeners again. With all the excitement of planting it can be easy to forget.

  5. Waiting months to plant Kim? LOL, I am in the PNW zone 7 and I have already planted onions (which take a really long time to bulb) peppers (ditto to the length of the season needed to get really bushy seedlings) and next month I am seeding Oregon Spring Tomatoes which are cold tolerant–I hope to put those out in a protected location in March. I have a very sunny window which has worked for me for years as far as getting seedlings up and growing–the key is turning the plants roughly a quarter daily so the seedlings get distributed light, when they become larger they go into the sun and back inside at night–works for me, I have used lights in the past and have nothing against them, I just don't want to be bothered with them, although that clip on set up you showed might be worth a go.

  6. Kim! Perfect timing. I'm getting ready to get my grow station set up and I got a shop light from my dad! Was needing to go bulb shopping but had no clue what to get! As always – questions answered! We couldn't do it without ya! πŸŒ±πŸ’š
