Description from Park Seed
We love this universal light stand, and so will you. It’s simple, lightweight, very durable, and completely adjustable. It puts light just where you need it, so your seedlings and plants grow their best. It’s easy to use and endlessly versatile. We think you’ll get a lifetime of hard wear out of it, and we highly recommend it for starting seeds indoors, growing on seedlings before the season, and overwintering tropicals, tenders, and houseplants!
The principle is very simple, and somehow this light stand is far less clunky than older models. Two 18-inch-high support bars of powder-coated aluminum hold the light hood in place, and adjust with four O-rings that slide up and down the bars. The base is secured with 6 anti-skid pads and a wide yet compact surface area. Two light grips hold any T5 bulb securely in place. The whole thing assembles in seconds, and then you plug it in and adjust it to that optimal 3- to 6-inch range above the tops of your seedlings or plants. That’s all there is to it!
T5 full-spectrum bulbs are the ones recommended for plant growth. They offer full-spectrum light of the type plants need for optimal growth, and if you’ve been making do with under-the-cabinet kitchen fluorescents or the good old late-winter sun shining through the window, you’ll be amazed at the difference proper lighting makes to the size, speed, branching, and color of your seedlings. They shoot right up, and out!
The Universal T5 Light Stand is made of durable aluminum and injection-molded plastic for a lifetime of rust-free, warp-free, crack-free use. You’ll like how it effortlessly glides into position and keeps its pose. Best of all, it fits just about anywhere near a socket!
Use this Universal Light Stand with any of our Sunblaster Plant Lights: 18-inch or 3-foot. It’s the perfect ‘frame’ for whatever length of light you need to grow your best garden ever! Each foot measures 13″ x 3″.
