    Hi Kat,
    What a great website! So happy I found you!
    Congrats on your 1 year anniversary last month!
    I thought I’d binge read your blog posts from the beginning and found this starting point. I really enjoy all your details, pictures, links and conversational style writing.
    Since I haven’t read each article yet, I’m wondering about your thoughts on LED grow light shelf units and if you have one?
    I live in Michigan and sometimes during winter months we don’t see the sun for weeks. Needless to say I’m heading into fall worried about all my newly acquired potted beauties.

      Hi Jean,
      Thanks so much for your kind words! I so appreciate it!
      I have not yet done a post on Grow lights, and I think it is high time that I do. I do use led grow lights, although I think you can get great results with CFL compact fluorescent lights, too. The key is to keep the plants very close to the bulbs – 6-12 inches. This is the led light panel I have for my indoor plant shelf. I also use a reflective heat blanket wrapped around the shelf. It is right beside a window I keep open for my cats. So this blanket keeps the plants warm, and reflect even more light to them.
      Thanks so much for the nudge! I’ll get cranking on the grow light post! 🙂
