Choosing a Lighting and Growing System

On this page, two options for lighting systems and two options for growing systems are explained. Regardless of the systems you choose for your Fast Plants(TM), remember that they need:

  • Continuous fluorescent light (lights turned on 24 hours a day).
  • Continuous supply of water and fertilizer (use a self-watering system and apply fertilizer through the water or in pelleted form added to the soil when the seeds are planted).
