Exclusive | Light Stand Cover Holds in Warmth and Increases Light Availability by 33 Percent

  • Create an ideal microclimate for plants in a cool basement or drafty room
  • Fabric reflects light back onto plants for faster, healthier growth
  • Zippered openings let you control ventilation

Please note: This cover is designed to fit our full size light gardens that measure 52-1/2” wide. Please measure your light garden. If your light garden measures 51” wide, or if you are buying a new light garden, the frame of this cover can be cut to fit correctly. We will include instructions on how to do this.

If you start seeds or grow plants in a chilly basement or a drafty back room, the Light Stand Cover will help provide plants with a bright, warm, stable environment that promotes optimal growth. Made from heavy-duty polyester, the cover reflects light back to the plants, increasing light availability by 33 percent — without increasing electricity cost! It has a mesh top to allow excess heat to escape, and multiple zippered openings so you can easily adjust ventilation. These openings also provide easy access so you can adjust the height of the lights without removing the cover. The front closes securely with hook-and-loop fasteners. This cover fits our Standard 3-Tier SunLite® Garden, Standard 2-Tier SunLite Garden and High Intensity 2-Tier Light Garden.

  • Polyester, hook-and-loop closures, mesh top
  • 53" L x 16" W x 64-1/2" H
  • Includes powder-coated steel frame adapter so the cover can be used with both older and newer SunLite Garden models
  • Imported
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

              When you pay $60 for a cover and purchase a new $600 plant stand at the same time, you would expect that the rods for the cover are the correct size. You would also be surprised that you need a hack saw to cut the rods to fit being careful as you are cautioned not to crush the rods!

              • Seed starting

              I have been hoping for years that Gardener's Supply would make a cover for the three tier lights, and my wish was granted!

              I moved my lights to the unheated cellar (permanently) to gain space in our small home. With the lights down cellar, I also am not bothered by the bright light they give off in the evenings, which allow the plants a longer growing day.

              The cover was super easy to set up, fits well and really does hold in the heat. It is easy to adjust the lights with the cover on. All of my seedlings are growing well! There is plenty of ventilation all around for air movement. There is no problems with moisture being trapped beneath the cover.

              The only bummer is that you can unzip the cover only from one side for watering or checking on your plants...I wish there were zips on both for better access. My lights are not set up against a wall, so it would be preferable to have access from both sides.

              However, for the price, I would probably just buy another set if that ever came available!

                    this cover was two inches too deep for the light Standard 3-tier Sunlite Garden it was advertised to fit, making it necessary to take a pipe cutter to it to make it work. It does now work as advertised, though was very pricey for the construction. I would make my own if had it to do over.

                      I was disappointed to find that the frame that holds the cover was 2" too long. When I called to inquire found out that it was sized wrong and there was no replacement. I cut two of the pipes to make it fit.
                      It was a bit cumbersome to fit over the light stand. The instructions included nothing about fitting it over the stand.

                        I got this cover last week to surround my 3-Tier SunLite Garden where I grow orchids. It fits perfect, and has many ways to partially open for air flow or fully open to water the plants. It got a small fan (very small) to provide air movement when the cover is closed. I really appreciate the well thought out design features. There are even velcro spots on the upper back corners to hold the cover "doors" fully around the sides when open. I bought this hoping to increase the temperature and humidity. Mission accomplished.

                              The frame for the Light Stand cover is manufactured too large to fit the night stand. A replacement was sent and it was too large as well. I used a pipe cutter to cut off 1 1/2 inches from the support tubes to make it fit. Once I put the cover over the frame and light stand I discovered that the cover was too large as well. It looks saggy, but at least it's serviceable.

                                  My husband bought this for my birthday. Today I went to put it on and the frame for the top was to long so my husband had to cut 1 1/2" off of 2 of the frame pipes so it would fit. I have the standard 3 tier shelf and the cover fit is good but I would of liked to have small holes in the back or sides for the light cords instead of using the same slot as for adjusting the light height chains. I have my stand in the basement which gets very chilly in the winter. I will be monitoring the air and soil temp once I start my seedlings in a few months. I will update my review later to let everyone know if worked out as others have questioned the temp and air circulation. The color may end up being an issue as it is very white and being in the basement I wonder how long it will remain white, think a cream, tan or green might of been a better color choice.

                                      This cover blocks the air movement around plants that is essential to healthy growth. The first noticeable impact will be the appearance of patches of white, cottony mold on the surface of the soil . . . and it's all downhill after that

                                      This is the worst product idea, bar none, that anyone has ever come up with. Any fabric placed around a plant stand will block air movement sufficiently that white cottony mold will soon be growing on the surface of your potting soil. Very bad idea and obviously never tested by any of the pseudo-gardeners on this site.
