For more casual plants, this is great. My tineke rubber tree and monstera deliciosa each have their own bulb and have been absolutely thriving. I also recommend getting a timer to plug it into.
They fit perfectly into our kitchen recessed lights and provide great illumination. Make sure to put up a curtain (preferably reflective) or install them in a fixture with a reflector/shield.
It is in the winter season and my pothos is still sprouting new leaves. I have a bunch of new growth on my miniature roses. I also have a modest sized colocasia that had grown numerous green leaves.
These bulbs are terrific. They are 9 watts which doesn't cost much electricity. The par value is higher for these th than the feit br30 bulbs.
This bulb needs to be around 6-9 inches over the plant in order to work. It messes up the décor of my living room and is in general an eyesore.
The timer is great! The timer has 3 settings. After you turn it on everyday you then select how long you want it to stay on. These lights are super bright for 20w.
I normally use a t5 * setup they are so picky. They're light weight enough that i was able to mount them on the underside of a shelf i already owned. The greenhouse is metal frame with lightweight wire shelving.
