I'm thinking of getting Barrina or Monios LED lights for my orchids so I'm wondering if anyone here uses them. Please share your opinions if you do. Thank you!

This is an old thread but I thought I would give my input. I got some Barrina grow lights in September. They were on sale. I figured they have to be much better than my octopus lights. So far they seem to be okay. Some of my orchids have some reddish hue to them now. I sometimes wonder if they might be too bright for my seedlings but so far theyíre doing fine. I have them plugged into a smart plug which turns them on automatically.

Thanks for sharing your experience! Which ones exactly did you get?

I'm using two of the 2' ones to supplement my old fluorescent fixture but haven't tried them on their own yet.

I got 8 of the 2í yellow ones and 4 of the 2í bright white ones that look more pinkish. My current shelves are about 20Ē high and I use 2-3 per shelve because they are pretty small ones. So far I mixed the yellow and pink ones. I think they do plenty for my orchids. Most of them have the reddish hue on them from the lights. Iím not sure if the pink ones are the cause.

2-3 per shelf isn't too bad at all! I haven't tried them alone but I wouldn't have thought they'd be bright enough. Maybe I'll try them without my fluorescents at some point.

They are pretty bright but my shelves are also very short. Iím moving soon so the set up will change and Iíll see how itíll do.

When you say 20" high, how far are the lights from your plants' leaves?

Iíve got two trays of seedlings about 3Ē tall and they are the farthest away from the lights. 20Ē is more of an eyeball estimate since Iím not there. Iíll have to take a picture when I can. My taller plants that are close to mature are pretty much touching the lights and they donít have problems with it. I figure in nature, the smaller seedlings hide under the taller plants anyway so itís natural.
