Confused on grow lights

Asked April 18, 2020, 10:00 AM EDT

Venturing into hydroponics. Far too many LED grow lights to pick from on the market. Any suggestions regarding frequency emissions, sizes, illumination intensities? Will be using for growing lettuces, onions, strawberries and similar in closed environment in order to limit rabbits, deer, insects, etc. Thanks in advance.

Hi,
When many Hennepin Master Gardeners start seeds, we use inexpensive shop lights (sold at big box home stores) with one cool and one warm fluorescent bulb in the fixture. Inexpensive and effective.
