Default Where to buy LED T5s

I want to try LED light strips in my orchid stand. Where can I buy them? I don't see them on Kelly's Korner or Repot me, my 2 got to vendors for orchid supplies. I'd like to avoid Amazon on principle.

Googling “T5 LED plant light” turned up a few.

What principle is violated by shopping on Amazon? Many of the items you see there are not sold by Amazon at all.

My problem with Amazon is that they don't stand by the products they sell and it is too difficult to get in touch with them if you have any problems. I'd like to buy from a vendor I can talk to.
After posting, I looked thru my Orchids magazines and discovered an article last month on LED lights that fit into T5 fixtures. They mentioned that there can be compatibility problems with the Ballasts in T5s so I would like to be able to ask the seller questions.

Hey Connie, I've had good results with T5's that I got at Lowes. My masdies are doing just fine over the last year or so. Heck of a lot less money than on line light sources of plant lights.

Yeah, I can get behind that.

In addition to my own website, I sell through the Amazon Marketplace, and have had several "conversations" with customers over the years. It's not the most convenient means, but it's possible.

Connie, look at Harris Seeds. That's where I got my LEDs. I use Sunblasters and have been very happy w them and Harris customer service (One came damaged in transit.)
