If placing 2 seed trays so as to add up to an approx 42 " length, would 1 48" strip light be sufficient ? If only 1 strip light would be enough for such a set up, at what point would a 2nd strip light be recommended as trays are added to broaden the field depth? Ie., a rectangular field of about 22/ 44/ 66 inches? etc. Thank you!
Yes 1 48" LED light would be sufficient for a 42" setup. When to add extra grow lights is going to be very dependent on your setup. The best way will be a bit of trial and error but you just want full light coverage with no shading.
what is the CRI color rendering index for the LED Grow Lights - 48" 48W T5 Strip Light ? thank you kindly
The CRI of our LED grow light is over 81.
How many square feet does one unit cover in terms of growing lettuce. What is the recommended distance from maturing lettuce plants on a cut and come again lettuce set up?
Growing lettuce is unique for lighting requirements. The lights need to be pretty close to the plant canopy 12" to 18".
The 4 foot LED we have are cool blue white and good starting point for small systems. You need 2 four foot lights to cover a 24” X 48” (2x4) shelf front and back of the trays. Two lights per self is minimum for successful coverage of the plants. I usually refer to Farmer Tyler and his lighting videos.
how can we order the plastic grow bags 30 g ,
We do have a 25 gallon grow bag here https://www.bootstrapfarmer.com/collections/grow-bags/products/grow-bags.
How far away from the top of the plants should this light be? I have one light
I find the below very helpful:
Are these lights only good for seed starting or can I use them to grow my vegetables until they are ready to go into the garden for a head start on my growing season?
The LED lights could be used for both purposes.
Could you please provide more information on the light pattern. At 12” above the plant tray what is the width of the coverage?
The coverage at 12" is 70x40". Regarding the light pattern, please check out the images and info docs on the details page. If you need more detail, just let us know! Thanks!
What is the maximum amount lights that can be safely linked together?
You can safely link 7 LED grow lights together.
