The unit comes with four, two-foot T5 fluorescent light tubes in a low profile body that can hang or be mounted horizontally or  vertically. And given its compact size and shape, the EnviroGro FLT24 can be used just about anywhere, either as a stand-alone fixture or in a series.

The T5 bulbs in this unit are much brighter than typical shoplight bulbs you will find in your local hardware store and are therefore much better for plant growth.  In particular, the EnviroGro FLT24 is a perfect fixture for starting and/or maintaining smaller plants. Unlike high pressure sodium and metal halide lights, fluorescent lights give off significantly less heat and are therefore better to prevent burning or drying seedlings or seedbeds during critical stages of growth and germination. As a consequence, fluorescent fixtures can be set closer to the plant material where the light is needed.

Moreover, the color of the T5 bulbs that come with this fixture naturally produces a good light spectrum for strong vegetative growth, which is most important to get you starts off quickly and through the most vulnerable stages of development.  The yellowish light produced by high pressure sodium lights, by comparison, does not lend itself to strong vegetative growth, and is more suited to flowering stages.

Finally, user reviews of the EnviroGro FLT24 confirm that the unit is reliable and produces fantastic results, particularly for starting plants. Users note purchasing the EnviroGro FLT24 after trying cheaper hardware store fixtures that produce long and spindly seedlings, which typically do not fare well.

In conclusion, I would recommend the Hydrofarm EnviroGro FLT24 T5 Growing System to anyone either using the fixture in a series, or alone, as a complete light system for raising a large number of healthy seedlings or other starter plant material.
