Where’s the best place to get a grow light and what type/brand would you recommend.
My plants need a new grow light and my last one did not last long at all. Please help me. #GrowLights

i did a google search to find mine & on a bunch of lists a clip with long arms from amazon came up! it’s $20 and it has worked to “stress” (bring out the colors!) in my succulents. it also has a timer to auto turn off. your choice very much depends on the space/set up you have ! also, i think i have heard that ones with full spectrum and infrared are best, but i could be wrong :-)
Lowe’s has GE grow bulbs you can screw in to your own lamps. They’re very good quality.
I got a clip on grow light from Amazon for my desk I love it! The best person to ask would be @AwesomePlants 😊
Was literally just readjusting mine! These I got on Amazon for $10. They clamp on to my bookshelf and it's really easy to move the heads as you can tell.
I bought a halo grow light on Amazon for $11. It’s on a timer and it’s great!!

It depends on your setup. My plants main light source are my grow lights.

If you have shelves or can hang, I'd recommend the GE tube light to hang:

I bought four 5 socket flexible lamps at Walmart and put GE full spectrum lights in them. I have them pointed for plants on my bookcases and my 5 foot BOP.

@Mrgncrch Thanks for the tag!💚
@Planthippie00 I've tried several grow lights and I recommend the GE lights for true growth on your babies. I not only prefer these bulbs because they've given my babies the best light, but also because it's economical. Once a bulb dies in a few years, I can just swap out the bulb. With the other all-in-one lights, once it dies, you have to replace the entire unit. If you need a timer function, just plug the lamp into a smart plug to set a y timers.
@AwesomePlants thanks you so much very helpful
@AwesomePlants just bought 3 grow light bulbs from your Amazon
