Exclusive | Bright, Full-Spectrum Plant Light

  • Energy-efficient light fixture is perfect for starting seeds and growing houseplants
  • High-output fluorescent tubes are 72% brighter than standard shop lights
  • Improved chain connection for easier adjusting; hanging chains are not included

For best seedstarting results, instead of using a fixture that's meant to illuminate the garage or workshop, use a fixture that's designed to make plants grow. Our new T-5 Light Fixture uses the latest in lighting technology with a state-of-the-art ballast. The high-output fluorescent tubes are 72% brighter than standard "shop lights", and they replicate more of the light spectrum so your seedlings and houseplants develop healthy top growth and strong root systems. Because the tubes are smaller, they require less mercury, phosphorous and glass to manufacture, and they use less electricity and last longer.

  • Rugged powder-coated aluminum, recycled plastic, metal
  • 47-3/4" L x 14" W x 2-1/2" H
  • UL-listed, 7' grounded cord
  • Each fixture holds 2 full-spectrum T-5 bulbs, included
  • Bulbs last up to 10,000 hours for years of use
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

      Comments about T-5 Light Fixture:

      I set this light up in the basement along with the seed starter kits and a warming mat. It only took a couple of days for the plants to start sprouting. I've already had to transplant a few into bigger pots. I set the light up on a timer so that it's on the seedlings about 14 hours per day. The hangers I bought with it make it super easy to adjust.

          After over 20 years of use, the light fixture on my gro-lite stand gave up, I was pleased to find this replacement so I did not need to replace the whole stand.

          Comments about T-5 Light Fixture:

          This grow light joins a collection I have been amassing for the past 10 years. Over the years, the light fixtures seem to be getting lighter in weight, which is nice, but a bit wobbly/flimsy, which concerns me since I do, indeed, hope to use this fixture for many years to come. For now though, it's working well and is a welcome addition to my grow light world!

            Comments about T-5 Light Fixture:

            I replaced an old 4-tube flourescent shop light fitted with grow lights with this. This product is many times brighter and more lightweight than the old heavy 4-tube shop light. My plants are already much happier, and I will never by an old school flourescent fixture again.

                    The light was great last year. I have just put it up for this year, and it will not turn on. The fixture shows there is power going to it, but the lights will not turn on. A very expensive way to grow seeds for just one year.

                        Comments about T-5 Light Fixture:

                        we replaced 4 single lights with 4 of these doubles. The extra light they produce is a good thing, but these lights are poorly made. They have no end on the shade, which makes them flimsy (the pictures hide that fact). the clips that hold the lights are too small and flimsy. if you aren't very careful handling the shade, the bulbs will fall out; even raising and lowering the lights can cause a bulb to drop out. Others have commented on the awful instructions.Our lights arrived with no chains. GS staff were friendly, but after waiting a week for the chains I got some at [@]. Then one of the ballast units failed after 1 day, and I'm still waiting 12 days later for the replacement. My opinion of GS has diminished as a result of these faulty lights and the long time to get me new parts. Come on, you can find better lights than these lemons.

                        • Use lights to grow an abundance of stocky, green seedlings or pamper indoor flowering plants. The right lights will keep them blooming almost year-round.
                        • When you grow seedlings under our lights, you won't see the usual signs of light starvation. Instead, you'll notice straight, stocky seedlings with well-developed leaves and root systems.
