Then look no further than this Hydroplanet 4 feet 8 bulb T5 fixture, because it is the perfect light to fulfill you grower’s needs. The plants flourish, stems strengthen, and flowers bloom under the eight 6,500 Kelvin bulbs. These bulbs are known as plant growth aids. This is due to the fact that the bulbs’ output is similar to actual sunlight. So T5 grow lights are a top choice for indoor gardening, patio, lawn, and hydroponics technologies. The weight (33 pounds) is standard for this kind of fixture solution, and this durable fixture can be secured both horizontally and vertically.
Additional features consist of eight lamps that can be replaced when necessary and a 15′ power cord, that will help you get that ideal lighting position for your plants.

There’s always a possibility of daisy-chaining two or more Hydroplanet fixtures in order to lower maintenance and replacement costs.
Hydroplanet takes great care in issuing a proper housing for all of its growing fixtures. The housing of this T5 fixture is coated with durable powder. The shell is white, which means that it’s suitable for most spaces because of the relatively neutral color. And if you wish to have another color fixture, then you can paint some of the parts with a designated heat-neutral paint. For more information, consult an expert or a shop clerk.
