Controlling the lighting helps to speed up the propagation phase for living soil plants. Our propagation lighting is designed with the correct spectrum for cuttings and seedlings. Fluorescent lights from the hardware store have a different spectrum and will simply not work as well as our propagation lighting. We have LED propagation light kits for clones, fluorescent lighting and CFL lamps for propagating seeds and growing seedlings. We also have low profile fluorescent tube lighting & fixtures.
