Hey everyone!

 

I'm hoping to find a decent, yet affordable LED grow light that will be best for starting my plant starts indoors, but I am also looking for one that will help my favorite plants to fruit indoors over the winter. There are a lot on Amazon, many of which are under 60 dollars a piece. I'm wondering which are actually good lights for fruiting.

 

These are two I found:

If cost is an issue then try Banggood website and read the reviews. If your good with soldering then you can put together your own very cheep.

you should read about Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density (PPFD)

this way you can actually evaluate which lights will work. if they aren't listing that they are a. negligent b. hiding something

 

those lights you posted are very weak. will only work for very small plants.

 

examples that actually give the ppfd numbers:  hlg  marshydro

I don't know a lot about lights, but I went with these last year. They were recommened in another thread I found when searching lights. I wasn't looking for fruiting and not sure if these are the best for that. I was starting from seed in winter until I could transplant in spring outdoors. My plants did really well under them.
