Default What are good task lighting options for my crops?

Hi all, I have friends over to crop and I realized last month that I just don't have good light in my house other than over my dining tables. I had set up additional tables and I realized that there was very little lighting other than ambient light.

Other than calling an electrician, what's the best way to get more lighting for my friends to crop?


I actually mentioned adding recessed or pot lights to my husband, and he was less than thrilled with the idea. He just doesn't understand!

How about swing arm lamps? They are inexpensive, fold compactly for storage, attach directly to the tabletop, and can be aimed in just about any direction.

The thing you will have to be careful of is covering the electrical cords that run across the floor (if that's how you have to do it) so that nobody trips.

You can even go a step further and find full spectrum light bulbs for them. I buy mine at the health food store; they are like any standard bulb and cost around $8 or $9 a piece. I have found that they last a long time, so they are definitely worth the money AND they are far cheaper than an Ott Lite.
