Grow light box

Hi all
I was wondering if you can use led 60watt bulbs in a grow box or do they have to be special ones
Thanks

Good morning Pauly1958,  I don't think a 60 w LED will have the appropriate and required wavelengths of light.

Cheers,  Tony. :)


I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

Apparently, cheap fluorescent ones will do (the old fashioned tubes that make your eyes ache!)  But, Ikea do a proper grow light bulb for about a tenner, which seems like a bargain to me. I had their Krydda hydroponic salad system for Christmas, and its producing sturdy little seedlings already.

They do an E27 light fitting. I quite like the Vaxer one, too.  It's cheaper than Krydda (but plastic) and the stand holds the light in a good position for the whole tray, so none of the seedlings are stretching towards the light, which I would worry about with just a lamp and bulb.

(I sowed the seedlings below on New Years day)
