Things to consider
The main things to look for when buying or making your own led grow system are:
Lumens: lumens is a measure of brightness of the light. the higher the lumens the brighter the light, the better result you might get.
Kelvin: Kelvin refers to the type of light produced or the color temperature (you want to mimic daylight) the higher the kelvin the better.
Watts: Watts is a measurement of the electricity used
LED grow light should be operating for at least 10-12 hours a day.
Starting seeds or growing vegetables you will need a grow light which is powerful enough to cover the grow area where your plants or seedlings are going to be. The area may differ depending upon the size of your grow station.
Where to get the Cheapest led grow light
The cheapest LED grow lights I have seen so far are these led light bulbs and clamp lights at Walmart. The clamp lights are $6.47 at
Walmart and the is the biggest expenditure your are going to make on the Led grow lights.
Yes that is right, I have found 97 cents 100 watt LED light bulbs at Walmart in some stores. Online they have it for about $3.97 which is still very cheap compare to the others that are $20.
Therefore the total cost for my led grow light is
8.5" clamp light = $6.47
Total = $7.44
$7.44 is less than half the price of a regular led grow lights. Therefore I bought 2 sets to setup my seed starting setup. If you want the larger one The 10.5'' Clamp Light cost $10.97 at Walmart at Amazon it was $16.99 when I last checked.
LED Grow Light Setup
All you need to do is to attach the bulb to the light Clamp just as you would attach any other bulb and the clamp the light to a fixture that will hold the lamp above your plants. for Seed starting the grow light should be 2 and 4 inches above the plant. For other regular plants the grow light can be higher depending on the plant and its need for light.
For seed starting I leave the light on for about 12 to 18 hours. so the plants get enough sunlight and grow healthier.
