Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.
Note – This is an encore item and one I am bringing around yet again for a few reasons. First we are hitting the time of the year to start plants. For a lot of the country the time to start peppers, tomatoes, etc. is about Valentines day. That is only a week away, (crazy I know) so get the stuff set up now or next thing you know it will be March. Second is the price has dropped a bit since the last time, these lights are now only 28 bucks with free shipping. Third is simply the value. These are not the best plant lights in the world, what they are is damn good for how cheap they are. They are the second highest selling item by volume on TspAz.com and I have yet to get a single complaint. Additionally today’s show is about, you guessed it, starting plants.
I am actually going to keep looking for a better value in lights, something that works better for the same money or works as good for less, but I have not found such a light yet. These are great for starting plants in winter for spring, just get them very close to your plants, have a plan to raise them a bit as the plants grow. For more tips tune in to today’s podcast later today.
Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Kingbo Reflector 45W LED Grow Light.
To grow well plants need full spectrum lighting and as LED technology has advanced it has become the go to choice of professionals in the indoor farming market. Not only does it grow plants with greater vigor than florescent lighting it has a massive cost savings in electrical use and LEDs last a long longer so the longer equipment life cycle further drives down total cost.
Still the cost of quality LED grow lights has been quite high and it has held back the small time and hobby gardener for quite a while. Recently some low cost lights have come along and worked okay but were made so cheaply that they would often fail in 90-180 days for many users. And with that any savings was gone.
Over the past two years a company called Kingbo began producing some smaller LED grow lights and developed a good reputation with them, but they were two small to be useful to me for starting flats of seeds. When they came out with the Kingbo Reflector 45W LED Grow Light I was pretty happy but figured I would wait a while and let others try it out and see what kind of reputation it had after some use by the market.
It has now been around about 9 months and seems to have maintained a good reputation. I also like that they offer a full 12 month warranty and a 30 day money back satisfaction guarantee.
The big thing I like is how well it works, see the video below of one youtuber who tested his on basil and watermelon. When you hear me talk about healthy and stocky seedlings this is what I am talking about. I like this light so much that I recently ordered 4 of them for my own seed starting this year. I’ll be putting together my system and sharing it with you soon.
In any event if you are looking for a great grow light to start your own plants indoors, of do indoor farming with a grow tent, check this one out, at 29 dollars with 4.6 stars with over 160 reviews it is hard to beat on the current market. I do expect over the years for this technology to continue to improve and become more affordable, but at present time the Kingbo Reflector 45W LED Grow Light is my current top choice of what is available. I have waited long enough to adopt LED grow light technology.
