There are so many light options for growing microgreens you can drive yourself crazy trying to choose the best one.
In this episode of the Microgreens Podcast, I'll tell you that there is no best one light. Choosing a light depends on what you attend to grow, your budget, and how you want to mount them above your microgreens.

For most people, LED shop lights with a Kelvin (K) rating above 5,000 will be more than enough light. These lights are easy to set up with very little hassle and grow microgreens just fine. On the other hand, LED grow lights take more trial and error, and there are other factors that you need to consider, such as the mounting height above the trays and what you plan on putting above the lights if anything.
In most cases, LED grow lights must be hung from the ceiling, not on a shelf. While LED shop lights produce little heat and are used in a rack system with no trouble.
