      Comments about Compact 3-Tier Sunlite® Garden:

      With two people, this is easy to setup. It is compact enough to easily fit without taking over a room. Many of my houseplants are too tall to fit on the shelves but they can sit on the floor in from of the system and reap the reward of the lights. The lights are nice and bright and easily adjusted. I can't wait to start growing vegetables from seeds this year.

      Best Uses

      • Seedstarting

      Comments about Compact 3-Tier Sunlite® Garden:

      The product will work great for us because of the size, simplicty and mobility. There are 3 things that could be improved. #1)The wires to the lights are un-organized and all the same length. The middle and bottom wires have way too much excess. #2)There should be a power strip on the unit to alleviate the problem. It's compounded when you add 3 heated seed mats for a total of six wires hanging, all in different lengths, with no tie downs. I used zip ties to hold them, but it still looks tacky with clumps of wires on the floor. #3)Would have been nice if the unit had a humidity cover available. OK, there's a #4)When the lights are lowered, they're not secure, so if the cart is moved or the fixtures are touched, they tend to sway back and forth, and they hardly ever stop in a level position. These may be nit-picky things, but they are somewhat aggravating. All said, I really do like to cart. The lights, wheels and sturdiness will hopefully bring us enjoyment for a long time.

        Well built product. It works well for my limited space. The instructions to assemble the hanging lights were a little confusing.

        • Rooting Cuttings
        • Seedstarting

        Comments about Compact 3-Tier Sunlite® Garden:

        I have five of these. I use them for seed starting, rooting cuttings, growing on perennial plugs, and as general overflow from my home greenhouse. They are well made and work very well. What irritates me about them is that the trays don't fit the shelves, and so there is a useless space between the tray and the end of the shelf. This amounts to about 20% overall wasted space, which is space that I could use. I expect that the trays are made to a standard size and that it would be more expensive to have one that actually fits, but as space is a valuable commodity, I would rather have paid more to either have larger trays so I could make the most of the tower, or paid less for a tower that is less wide so that I can make the most of the space in the room!

        It holds a good amount of plants or seedlings. It is fairly attractive and can be moved out of sight when not needed.
        It was quite pricey but I didn't find anything comparable elsewhere.

        • Seedstarting

        Comments about Compact 3-Tier Sunlite® Garden:

        I use this mostly for African violets but it could be used for nearly any type plant. The small footprint is ideal for small spaces, yet it holds a lot on its three shelves. I bought a timer that allows the perfect amount of lighting per type plant. The only thing I didn't like about the stand is that the light fixtures each have 6 ft cords that hang down on the same side that one has to manage with tape or twisties--not so lovely but it works great. I'd buy it again.

            Comments about Compact 3-Tier Sunlite® Garden:

            My sister and i put it together. Only problem was the long pieces should be marked top. Once we crossed that hurdle everything fit nicely. We dropped the chain into a straw and threaded it over the pulley and that went quickly. It rolls nicely so easy to position. My seedlings are now happy and doing well and I love the tray. Only problem I now have is the one bulb won't stay on so I have to play with it more to find it's happy position.

              I set up the shelves in my basement and have been enjoying greens all winter. Seedlings pop up quickly. I even stretched a bit during the snow months and have little tomatoes, peppers, radishes, globe carrots, herbs, etc. It's been fun to get into the dirt while the snow flies. And the lights make all the difference in the world with quality growing. Very sturdy and handy to use.

              This was difficult to assemble, especially the light portion. The instructions were horrible. Pictures didn't match the written instructions. There was no guide that named all of the components so that you knew exactly what the instructions were referring to.

              Once the stand was finally assembled, it looks and seems to work well.
