I have always loved to garden and starting my own seeds. I especially liked to collect seeds from plants that I have already grown, they seem to give me great results.
I always however have had a difficult time finding a place outside to start the seeds, let them become hardened off and then ready to plant. For these reasons, I was overjoyed to be able to review the GrowHobby grow light.
I thought this year we would start an herb garden and grow some sunflowers as they are the kids favorites, but I knew that I wanted to start seeds instead of plants. We bought a seed starting set and the seeds we wanted. We were so excited to get home and get planting.
We soaked our seed starting discs with water, and planted two seeds into each disc, put the lid on them and set the GrowHobby grow light up on the kitchen counter with the seed starter tray beneath it. In 5 days we had sprouts!
The GrowHobby company is a family owned small business in New York, they have cold long winter but great summer and fall seasons, in conditions like that you really need hydroponics and grow lights to get things started, so that when the frost clears you are ready to plant.
They have a mission of getting these lights into the hands as many as possible including into every classroom in the country so that kids can experience what it is like to grow living things and food! Growing Food and Flowers Is Inspiring!
Do you remember the fist time you grew something when you were a kid? I remember it being so inspiring to see something grow from a simple seed, some as small as a speck of pepper. GrowHobby is trying to help people, even people who have gardened for a long to time to learn another way and that is indoors. Gardening can be just as fun in the winter as it is in the summer and fall, and think how much more food you can grow!
Please take a few minutes to check out GrowHobby website and make sure to connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. If you are interested in getting an LED grow light for your child’s classroom please get in touch with us!

I wish I would’ve had this for planting season. My seeds didn’t do very well.
