My Plant Rack (Indoor)

Been using this indoor plant rack i set up myself for some time. Pretty simple and compact, also been testing these T8 lights under indoor conditions to monitor whether there are suitable for my water jasmine plants which to some extent yes(otherwise they would have been dead long ago), but the conditions cannot be compared to outdoor with good direct sources of sunlight for sure. If it still goes well, might install a 2nd plant rack in my room soon.

Anyway these are HO(high output) white T8 lights which are very low watts. Everyday on 2 sets of these light-tube for 8hrs a day, and for 30 days(est. a month), will cost about only $3+ of electrical bill. Neat.
