beginner with plant lighting


Can someone recommend some, reasonably priced, grow lights for a beginner, like me? I have alot of succulents and they struggle up here with our cold winters I have a big south facing picture window but they get very cold, old house and windows! Thank you very much ��

Hi, Go to lowes or Home Depot and get some 4' long shop lights. You can get them for around 13$ a light. Then look around in the lighting section for bulbs to fit them, you can get packs of 2, 4' long natural sunlight bulbs for around 7$ which is what I use. They should last for years and they work great.
