Hi Kimbra –

If the two gardens are side by side, for a total area of 3 x 5, you could use a T5 fluorescent tube fixture. A two foot, eight tube system would give you a great amount of light output! Here’s a link:


If the gardens are in two separate areas, you could hang a 200 watt “cool spectrum” CFL bulb above each garden (https://www.planetnatural.com/product/cfl-grow-bulb/). The bulbs do not need a ballast or reflector, and with this cord set (https://www.planetnatural.com/product/vertical-cord-set/) can be plugged directly into any 120 volt outlet.

Hope it helps!
