  • Using T5 Fluorescents Vertically

    Created by Tony Erni on

    Good afternoon,

    I would like to make a hydroponic tower and use a T5 fluorescent lighting kit vertically. Is there any problem with running the bulbs this way?

    Hi Tony –

    Our T5 grow lights deliver flexibility, performance and high lumen output in any growing environment.They are available in multiple sizes and include fluorescent 6400K, T5 tubes. The systems may be daisy-chained together and allow you to choose multiple hanging configurations (overhead, vertical or horizontal) to meet your garden’s design.

    Each fixture comes with threaded cable hangers pre-installed for horizontal orientation. For vertical hanging, unscrew the cable hangers from the top of the unit, remove the screws from the side holes on the desired end of the unit, and screw in the provided cable hanger system. Here’s a link:


    Happy growing!
