      My plants have done very well with this little light. A large tray fits perfect under it. It is compact and easy to move. Love the chain pull for light adjustments!

        Comments about Compact Tabletop SunLite Garden:

        I am planning to pop basil, eggplant, and tomato starts under this growlight. Very hard to find a two T5 grow lights.
        Very irritating to put together. It was a bipolar process. Some parts went together easily. Others were very irritating.
        The ball bearing chain, for example. The sharp metal edges on the hood.
        The hard rubber on the electric connecters and cords.
        Took all my patience and then some. Oh, I had to call GS for a new hood because the small metal connectors to the chain were smashed and would not fit the chain. Metal bends too easily. Needed needle nose pliers.

        Comments about Compact Tabletop SunLite Garden:

        This product appears to be manufactured as cheaply as possible; yet
        I feel it will perform adequately.
        Its packaging was more impressive than the stand.
        Too expensive for such unimpressive material.

          I use this to start my tomato, pepper and other seeds and grow to transplant size. The 6400K Grow bulbs are perfect for this.
          For those that mentioned the hood doesn't hang level.... where the chain attaches to the hood - you can rotate it 360 degrees(around the little screw thing) and make it hang level. I didn't catch this at first, but now it's level.

          Comments about Compact Tabletop SunLite Garden:

          I loved the first one so much I bought a second! I set this up on my office floor (to avoid taking over the dining room table). These sprouts grow like mad. You can see progress every day (very exciting). Within four weeks, my first set were ready for the yard and now I am on my second set. The light gets slightly warm but not anything of concern. I rotate the boxes so they take turns under the middle of the light but the "over spray" of light is enough to permit a pretty good amount of "real estate" for growing. No change to utility bill at all.

              After several years of starting my squash seeds in a south facing window, I tried the grow-light approach. My seeds germinated in about a week, easily half the time they took sitting in the window. I'm looking forward to planting out sturdy seedlings at the end of the month and hopefully harvesting more squash than ever.

              Plants get the right amount of light. Does not take up much space. The construction is kind of filmsy but I did not want to invest a lot. Now that I have one, I am considering getting a bigger unitecause it makes sed starting so easy.

              How-To

              • 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.
