Which bulbs are needed for starting seedlings?
I have a 6 foot table on which my plants will be started as seedlings. I want to order the 6500 K (LED setup) bulbs and I will need a fixture as well. The online photographs look like the fixture will hold two LED bulbs at a time. Do I need to order the fixture and two bulbs? Or do I need two fixtures and four bulbs total for my growing space?
Our PhotonBlast fixture in 6500K (link below) sounds like a great option for seedlings. Each fixture includes integrated LED emitters, so there is no need to purchase any separate lamps.
You'll be able to simply plug the light fixture in with the included cord, without the need to install any separate lamps.
For seedling growth, each fixture is generally sufficient to cover 4-6 sq ft of surface area. Depending on the width of your 6-ft table, you may want to purchase several of these fixtures to ensure sufficient coverage.
