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.
