    Default A cart with light fixtures?

    I am looking for a growing cart with light fixtures already attached to it. I've been looking for a 3 or 4 tired cart, but have been having a terrible time find anything. Anyone know any good online sites with these?

    hey, I'm curious why you want a pre-made cart thingy. (ok, shop lights are ugly... but they are cheap.)

    Default Light Cart

    I use the shelf units that you can get from a box store that are used for storage, and then buy the shop lights and hang them from the shelves. This set up is much less expensive, I have had great luck with this set up.

    I agree, My light cart, I bought from boxstore and put shop lights up. Everything is doing great. I have 4 bulbs (2 shop lights per shelf) with one warm white and one cool white bulb per fixture.

    Any chance of getting a picture of your light carts? When you get a chance. Traci and I would love to see them (putting words in Traci's mouth).

    Heres a pic of my grow room. I'll try to take some more pictures tonight as I have changed a few things around. The upper light is a 400 watt switchable HID light that I currently have a HPS bulb in. and the lower lights are 2 florescent shop lights with warm cool and full spectrum bulbs.
