    Thank you for your help . How close should the fixture hang to the plants? From the top shelf to the top of the foam cups is 19inches. I imagine the sarrs will nearly touch the top or surpass it eventually

    Also, how many hours a day should I run it? Since it's outside I was only going to do 8-10 hours a day

    Mine are approximately 3.5' above the floor of the area. I'm currently running them 10 hrs per day, but it's getting near time to bump them to 11.

    I like the greenhouse tent.

    How about cruising craigs list for grow lights? Some is always starting big and crashing hard.

    The Kessil purple LEDs are always up for sale used.

    Aquatic plant LED strip lights will work just fine for each shelf. Minimal heat transfer.

    LEDs are rated for 50,000 hours, well worth the investment.
