Exclusive | Compact, Super-Bright Light Garden for Seedstarting Success in a Small Space

  • Compact, two-tier light stand is ideal for starting seeds in a small space
  • Bright, full-spectrum lights easily adjust to the proper height for optimal plant growth
  • Rugged, powder-coated aluminum frame with quiet, energy-efficient light fixtures
  • VIDEO: Tour our Vermont factory

Grow your own garden plants from seed in a smaller space with our Compact Two-Tier 2' Light Garden. This light stand is just 25-1/2" L x 14" W x 47" H, so it takes up very little floor space — just over 2 square feet. It's easy to store, too — just roll it into a closet. Your seedlings will thrive in the glow of the bright, energy-efficient T-5 lights — much brighter than "shop lights" for more robust plants — and the fixtures easily adjust up and down to accommodate plant growth.

  • Assembly required
  • Powder-coated aluminum frame, T-5 fluorescent lights
  • 25-1/2" L x 14" W x 47" H
  • T-5 fixture with 2 super-efficient fluorescent bulbs
  • Electronic ballast eliminates annoying buzzing
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

    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.

                  I purchased the 2 tier compact lighting stand a couple of months ago. My husband and I put it together in about an hour. It is critical to have all the parts laid out and organized, along with all proper tools at hand. It is sturdy and attractive. Right now I am starting my garden seeds. The light coverage is thorough across the entire shelf. The light can easily be leveled by turning the attaching chain at the top. This is a top quality product made in the USA.

                    It is amazing how quickly the seeds sprout and come up when you put them under these lights. I wish I had this years ago. It was simple to assemble (just follow the instructions). It looks really difficult, but it really isn't. It's very sturdy and I love the fact that it has wheels so you can move it around easily.
                    I have a plant setting close by and it has actually turned away from the window and is leaning towards this stand. The plants LOVE these lights. A must have for anyone who has plants, herbs or starting seeds. LOVE IT!!!!!
