      Comments about Compact 2-Tier SunLite® Garden:

      Love this grow-lite garden! This is a really good product! Happy about its compact size and quite like the chain adjustment, wasn't sure that I would. I like that you can be so exact on the height of the lights and can really keep them as close to the plants as possible.
      I too have some feedback about the assembly of this item. There were three issues that I found. One was my doing; the other two were shortcomings in the assembly directions. It wasn't difficult to put together, but could have been much easier.
      1. Frame Assembly. Some of the nut holes are indented and some are not. I originally thought there was a purpose to those indentions (just omitted from the instructions) and attempted to keep that in mind in the assembly. After three tries, I correctly determined those indentions had nothing to do with the assembly. My bad.
      2. Assembling the Light Fixture. The instructions explain that when installing the ballasts, to be sure that each end has a male and female socket. No mention is made on which side the male or female sockets should be on, but it does matter. To determine the correct side for each, plug the connecting cord into the ballasts; that will determine on which side you should put the male and female sockets. There can only be one way this will work. (That was omitted from the instructions.) Their bad.
      3. Ball Chain Assembly. When threading the chain through the drilled hole into the bar you must turn the frame on its side, since the leg is hallow, otherwise the chain will fall into the leg. (That was omitted from the instructions.) Their bad.
      I also had a problem with one of the ballasts and was immediately sent a replacement. I am, so far, very happy with this product!

      Comments about Compact 2-Tier SunLite® Garden:

      I purchased my sunlite garden in 2011. I have loved using it. I had some problems with bulbs and a bad ballast with which customer service helped me out. After owning it for four years, I expect to replace bulbs, but I was surprised to need another new ballast and was especially surprised that the ballast cost $60!! I wonder if other owners have found this expensive to maintain?

      Comments about Compact 2-Tier SunLite® Garden:

      We love to start seeds saved from our previous season's favorites.
      This little grow light stand is a great size for a kitchen corner.
      That said, at the various rates our seedings grow we found that the actual bulbs are too hot.
      With our previous grow light system from Gardener's Supply if a plant grew to touch the light its leaves would not burn and we were able, then, to keep the fixture fairly low to accomodate the slower-growing plants. We found, too, that in doing this the plants stayed fairly full-foliaged and had nice sturdy stalks. With the new fixture(s) we have to leave the slower growers in the dust in order to keep the bulb(s) away from the faster growing seedlings. This has also led to "reedier" plants as they hurry to get tall rather than full.
      Finally, The set-up directions could be simpler by color-coding what goes where (and which way in/out/left/right).
      I would recommend with the above caveats.

        I am using it to start my tomatoes and peppers, also flowers. I love the chain adjustment, and it looks good enough to have in my office. I also like that it has wheels , so I can move it if I want.

          Nice set up, decent quality, but was a pain to put together. The directions were not very detailed and need to adjust chains to keep the lights level but I would definitely recommend this product.

            This is way cool, once it is together, but the directions are not very good and it took a lot of figuring to work them out. I will be/am using it for orchids, indoor herbs and seed starting.

              This is exactly what I needed: it is compact enough to spend the winter in the bedroom without overwhelming us and the lights are perfect for starting seeds and encouraging young plants. It is not difficult to put together if you follow the directions and are organized. I only struggled with the ball chain, and that's just about the last step. It has functioned beautifully.

              Comments about Compact 2-Tier SunLite® Garden:

              This is a fantastic setup. Love the lights - these T-5s don't buzz at all - and the whole thing was easy to assemble and now feels sturdy enough to hold a bunch of plants and roll around.

              The quality of the seedlings (and even leaf lettuce) that I get from this stand so far outstrips what I'd been getting with a shop light with full-spectrum bulbs, I can't believe I waited this long to get these.

              My only complaint is that it's hard to get the light 'hoods' to hang straight. They balance fine until you plug them in; then the cord weighs down one side and they tilt. It's not a huge deal, but if you're the kind of person who's always straightening the picturs as they hang on the wall, this would probably drive you nuts. :)

                Comments about Compact 2-Tier SunLite® Garden:

                It is not a bad seed starter. With that said, there is a few problems. When you take off the film on the light holders the metal hooks are bound too tight. Trying to bend them up , my plyers slipped and now I have a nice gash on the top of the light. Also the openings that must be pried open to attached the chain too is also very tight and difficult to pry open. I would recomend this product, but I would also state that you need two people to put it together.

                  The SunLite grow light is sturdy, high quality product that is made in the U.S.A. It is attractive and the seedlings (penstemon) are thriving under the T-5 lights. The lights are easy to adjust to obtain the proper height. Rolling the cart from room to room is easy.

                  The product takes time to assemble. Directions could be clearer or individual parts marked better, or both.

                  Overall, this gro light, cart is far superior to a sunny window for starting plants.
