    I've always wondered, how exactly does one hang lights on grow racks?

    My only issue with using one would be temps because during the winter the house is usually kept around 65F at the very warmest. The tanks are able to keep the heat from the lights more contained and temps are anywhere from 70-80F instead...

    most fixtures come with chains making them real easy to hang to wire racks.....

    my basement hits 55 on some real cold nights......most the time day time its 80* nights are around 60-65* which actually keeps a wide range of plants very happy......

    Ah, that makes sense.

    Very rarely does the ambient temp in my room get above 70F in the winter. I would think that would be a problem for some of the plants.

    I may hit up home depot and see what they have for lighting just to get some more options. I'm still really reluctant to do any wiring or whatever it may take on my own...

    couple members here can walk yah through it im sure......check your options and decide if its worth it to yah to learn to save a lil cash......

    lot easier to heat a single tank or such to accomidate a few than cool down a whole room for the majority.......with CP's and orchids and such i much rather have to work around a cool room than a warm one....easier and cheaper to heat than to cool.....heating is simple, cooling can get complicated......
