Hey all,

It's only May and I'm looking forward to October already!

I am planning on putting up a 4x6' greenhouse in my living room to house the catts, phals, and anything else that likes it a little warmer than I keep my house in the winter. I'm going to try to crowd the heck out of it to get some free humidity out of the deal, but will need to supplement with how dry it gets.

Wondering about lighting, I have a few 4' LED shop lights, 5000k light that I could set up in there. I used one for my supplemental lighting over the winter this year, plants that were under it seemed happy enough. I really didn't have anything in active growth so it was hard to tell how they responded.

I could put 4 or so of these in the greenhouse and see how the plants respond. I can get many of them for the price of the grow lights that I've seen out there. I guess my biggest question is if the very expensive grow lights are that much better than what I've currently got. I'll have to spend $5-600 per light for the grow lights compared to a fraction for the shop lights.

Anyway, any input appreciated. Also if anyone has a different idea that would work better I'm all ears. I'll probably have 75 or so plants to fit in by the end of the summer, or 175 at the rate I'm going. I'm sure plant type will be a part of what I pick for lighting. I have 30 or so catts right now so higher light is what I'm looking for.
