Artificial Lights

Hey there,
We’ve got the FarmBot up and running and need guidance on the best artificial lights for plant growth. What specs should we focus on regarding the lights (wattage, size, etc.)? Any suggestions or links would be greatly appreciated.


Here’s a decent article on grow light.

I have been playing with the idea of introducing some grow light myself, the issue though is grow lights are supposed to be placed extremely close to the plants, like 8". At the 6’ required by the machines gantry the actual received light by the plants will be almost nothing. If you’ve got a solution though, I have seen the barrina leds are pretty popular right now.
