Led color changing lights for growing plants indoors

I just want to say that I love this LED technology. The color change is amazing, especially since they last so long. I'm so happy that there are affordable LED bulbs available. What a life saver. I've used a fluorescent ballast before, and it is so frustrating to turn the room on every time you want to make a change.

For my house, I use 4 36W T8's in a 36" vertical, spaced 24" from each other. It's perfect for 12 12 x 6ft lights, spaced evenly.

In our apartment I use 4 15W bulbs in a 36" vertical, spaced 24" from each other. It's perfect for 9 10 x 10 ft lights, spaced evenly.

I use 8 4.5W bulbs in a 36" vertical, spaced 24" from each other. It's perfect for 12 10 x 12 ft lights, spaced evenly.

I've been waiting for some of these T8 LED bulbs to come on sale for a while now, but just now I found them for .16 cents each at Home Depot.

I just bought 4 of them, and they are the most amazing thing. Instead of a 30+ year life span, these new T8's should live for about 20 years. I also use them in my garden, and they are easy to handle, and a snap to put up. Plus, they get even and soft light, which makes it easy to see in the middle of the night.

I use the 4.5W bulbs to grow blueberry plants in my greenhouse, the 8.0W for my herbs in a hanging container that I put in the sun porch, and they are just perfect for the other containers and trays I use to grow my tomatoes, peppers, squash and cucumbers.

I also use them for just about everything else in my garden. If you can figure out a way to do that, they'll be a wonderful addition to any home. Plus, they use about 30 watts, which is pretty much the most energy-efficient lighting you can get.

Here's a quick look at them, and you can click on the pictures to see them in much more detail. I'd love to know your thoughts on them.

So, what do you think about these new T8's? Are they for you? Are you a homeowner that just needs to try one of these bulbs, or are you someone that gets a ton of use out of them?

About Me

I'm a retired business owner, and have a pretty great life. We have a small farm, 3 sons and 5 grandkids, and a very wonderful wife.

I don't know much about the natural world, but I learn all the time. I enjoy all kinds of cooking, but am most proud of my bread and pizza.

I'm the owner of a small business, and sometimes that involves getting on the road. I try to find interesting stops along the way, as well as some time to visit my grandkids.
