Jump Start Light System Product Details

Comments:

The Jump Start Light System gives you a well-lit area for germinating seeds and developing seedlings. A durable, powder-coated frame in an attractive shade of dark green supports a 2-foot long T5 full-spectrum fluorescent bulb complete with hanger cables. The kit is easy to assemble and comes with the light fixture and cable. Sturdy 18-inch feet provide the frame with stability you can count on.

Light is essential for plants to develop, and vegetable seedlings need about 16 to 18 hours of light per day. Lower the fluorescent grow light to 2 to 4 inches above your growing tray when seeds are germinating or cuttings are rooting, and raise it with the easy-to-use patented toggle clamp cable system as the plants grow. Use this light system with the Gurney's Seed Starting Kit and Seedling Heat Mat Starter (sold separately) for excellent results. Once you transplant your seedlings outdoors, ensure they have initial protection from strong sunlight.

Grow lights for plants also help maintain healthy indoor plants that might not get enough exposure to sunlight, especially during the winter months. Potted plants need around 4 to 8 hours of light per day, while flowering plants may need 10 to 12 hours per day. Bring your plants out of the dark with a Jump Start light system.

bulbs hard to find
Reviewed By: Pam (Cheyenne, WY)
I bought two grow light systems. The first one works great. Some of the seeds popped up in 3 days. The second system was very hard to get pieces apart to assemble,after which was equally as hard to slide the parts together. then I had to turn the light tube and fuss with it to turn on, was missing one of the clips to the light but Gurneys customer service supplied a replacement quickly. The last straw was when I shut the second light off to move it, it would not turn back on. I have been searching for replacement bulbs, Gurneys does not sell them, The light was in use for only 3 weeks.

Too pricey for what it is
Reviewed By: Chip (Sparks, NV)
It works, but the other reviews are correct: the light is too thin, so if you put a tray under it, the plants at the edges of the tray get long & spindly & bend in towards the light. I would have given it a 3 except for the price: the construction is not very sturdy. There is no way this thing is worth $80. Look elsewhere or build your own.

Great Light
Reviewed By: J. Gault (Charlotte, North Carolina)
I ordered this earlier this year to start some seedlings indoors. This is a great product. With a seed starting kit from another seed company and this light, I had seedlings coming up in about 2 days. The light stand was easy to put together, just one little mess up from my side. My only problem is that I wish the cord could have a mounting place on the stand. I say this because the cord pulls the light for where I have to plug it in and my seedlings weren't growing straight, I had to turn them 2x a day. Not a big deal but a longer cord and cord mounting place would be great.

Great Results
Reviewed By: Betty Tymoniewicz (Wells, Maine)
"I love this 'jump start' system. I have never had luck starting seeds in the house. The plants are doing well, just transplanted into 4"" pots, but am keeping them under the light. Next year I will get the heating pad for underneath the tray. Over all I am super happy."

Jump Start Grow Light is great
Reviewed By: Lois Olson (Woodinville, Washington)
I am very happy with the Jump Start. It was easy to assemble and seems sturdy and well made. The plants, out to the base on all sides, are all growing straight.

Good light
Reviewed By: steve (sierra vista, arizona)
This is a great, easy to use growing light and stand. One thing I wish it had was more bulbs, each 2 feet long. Two or three would be better. This unit has one florescent bulb.

Doesn't work
Reviewed By: Teresa Witthuhn (Hays, Kansas)
I ordered this light early this year, but just got it put together and turned it on, or tried to. It doesn't work, so don't know if the bulb is defective or the what. Disappointed, as ready to start my seeds and now I can't.

Find A Better Light
Reviewed By: DC Grower (Washington, DC)
My seeds started out with a bang about a week ago, they have all germinated more quickly than I expected based on the seed company's information. However, this system has a single bulb in the middle that causes the two seedlings farthest away to bend toward it and not to grow as well. I would recommend looking for a grow light with more even lighting.

Disappointed
Reviewed By: Rookie Gardener (Buford, Georgia)
Although it is 2 ft long, the light is only 4 inches wide. The construction of this light system is flimsy. Not worth the money, should have been priced at no more that $20.
