LED Plant Grow Box

If you are wanting to grow some plants indoor on a budget have a look at this LED Plant Grow Box idea. The LEDs look similar to the 10mm White LEDs that we sell but unfortunately ours don’t get marked down 80% off after Christmas. 🙁

If LEDs aren’t for you have a look at the other grow box that is shown at the The Cheap Vegetable Gardener, for $20 you can’t go wrong.

"The light needs to be close to the newly emerging seedlings, but can’t be burning the more mature plants growing into it. My solution to this problem is a LED storage container grow box. With this I will have a portable seeding area and since LEDs practically emit no heat the plants can literally touch the lights without problems. At that time I move them to a larger grow box where it can continue to grow and start more seedlings."
