Hi guys, new to the forums. And also a novice when it comes to growing stuff. Although I have grown a lot of stuff, normally it dies within a few years or I give up. But for the last 6 months I am trying to get a little bit more serious about keeping these things alive and taking care of them. And I have done a fairly decent job. I live in the city, in a high rise building, and although I get sun on my balcony, it just isn't enough to keep things alive long enough, and definitely not long enough to get them to grow. So recently I would like to purchase a grow light, problem is I really know nothing about them.. Here is what I am trying to grow. Catnip Basil I might try other things once I get these two going long enough to actually be able to harvest seeds. They are both in pots, weather is between 12C and 40C yearly. It does not snow nor freeze here. The plants get morning sun for about 4-5 hours and then that's about it. So I want a grow light to set a timer on it to give them light during the night hours. But I have no idea how long I should leave the light on or if it matters or the type of light needed. You would think with plants like weeds I wouldn't have a problem, but behold I do! The pots are prety small, diameters are 15cm for one 10cm for the other. I don't want something too big nor too expenisive. But something easy to use, has a timer, and light bulbs relatively cheap but long lasting. Any help would be highly appreciated.
