To grow orchids and other plants from seed all the way to flowering and fruiting, you need maximum light intensity. With three, super-bright, full-spectrum fluorescent bulbs per fixture, our high-intensity grow lights provides 50% more light than dual-bulb versions. The rugged, powder-coated, rustproof aluminum frame has two growing shelves that provide plenty of room for seedlings and houseplants. The light fixtures easily adjust up and down as plants grow, and there’s plenty of headroom for tall plants. Includes frame, light fixtures, T5 bulbs, watertight trays and casters.

Great for orchids

What a great light cart! My cattleyas are thriving! Was easy to put together.

Generally a good product
If you plan to put clay pots on the bottom shelf, as the drawing appears to show, you'll first need to find some support to put under the bottom shelf. The top shelf has a support in the middle, but the bottom shelf does not, so the rubber shelf bows significantly. Shoe boxes are a reasonable temporary support while looking for something 14.5 inches long to use as slats.
For orchids, it works

I love the design--simple and efficient. The lights are bright but dim considerably in four months. The construction issues persist. My second unit has a significant dent and many gaps.

Good Stand, Not Flawless
I've purchased two of these high-intensity stands; unfortunately, some of the construction flaws continue. The plant stand works well for orchids. The lights are bright and adjustable. Most orchid plants will fit comfortably under the lights. The lights fade considerably in a short four months, so a yearly replacement of lights will be necessary. One side frame was punched incorrectly on the unit I received recently, so the bolt side was flat rather than indented as it should be. One side rail was completely misaligned because the internal nut unit was not square inside the rail. The unit also had multiple scratches and one pronounced dent. I think the simplicity of the LED units might make those a better choice.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

If you own an older model be prepared...
By Year round kitchen gardener
This one time where new version was not better. I get trying to make more profit by lightening the construction, but for the cost it should be more substantial. Not being magnetic means that I cannot use little magnets to hang foil covers to concentrate the light. Tape doesn't stick well to the metal either. They want you to buy the cover, but it doesn't seem to have zippers on both sides, so I would have limited access...and nearly a hundred more dollars. It's the right idea, but the materials are not as good as the original. Sorry gardeners this one didn't get better...just more expensive.
Merchant response: We are sorry you are disappointed in the High Intensity 2-Tier SunLite® Garden. This light garden is made with an aluminum frame which won’t hold magnets. You can always tray adding some magnetic receptive paint or tape to the garden to allow magnets to stick to it. Please call our friendly customer service staff at 1-800-876-5520 if we can help you in any other way.
Perfect product for my application.

I was able to bring in my ginger, turmeric and lemon grass from the outside to indoor environment until next summer.
Great for my orchids
from Boston, Massachusetts
This stand is very well made, elegant and streamlined in design, runs quietly, and my orchids are doing very well. I have two of these stands side by side in the dining room. Their light is a nice antidote to gloomy Boston days, and my cats like to hang out by these lights also! Also -- thank you for making available a product made in the United States.
Brings sunshine into the house
from Davis, CA
I put my house plants outdoors in warm weather to promote growth and then, in the past, they suffer indoors during the winter months, dropping leaves, mealy bugs taking over, etc. So I bought this two tier plant light system to keep the plants happy indoors during the winter. So far so good.
My orchids love it and so do I.
I really deliberated over buying this plant stand, and I'm so glad I did. My orchids are doing visibly better and flowering more. The stand itself is attractive and doesn't look out of place in a living room or dining room. I put plastic grids in the trays and added water for extra humidity. During winter I've noticed that my cats like to sit next to the stand, so they like the light too. Assembly took a couple hours and was a two-person job. Even my husband, not a plant person, was impressed by the superior quality of the stand. The only snafu was that one of the ballasts was defective, but Gardeners Supply sent a replacement.
