NEHERP Staff Description
We use more Jumpstart T5HO fixtures than any other grow light in our indoor greenhouses, and we can't say enough good about them. They are very inexpensive, very light, fairly cool running (esp. for a T5HO!), dependable, easy to mount, and include an excellent Agrosun bulb. Considering all that & the expandability of the link cables & dock kit add-ons, these are our favorite T5HOs.
Maximize your growing capacity with minimum effect on your wallet! These cool running Jump Start kits offer 20% more light intensity than other comparable fluorescent grow lights. Each kit contains a 6400K matching bulb, grounded power cord (with on/off switch), hanger clips for easy mounting, and instructions for set up. Polished reflector (shown) included. Fixtures can be linked in tandem via the optional link cable (up to 5qty 48in, or 10qty 24in fixtures) quickly & easily. Jumpstart dock systems available for those looking to create their own 2-4 strip fixtures, and it's easy to add/remove fixtures to/from the dock to fit your needs. Dock systems include link cables, 18in removable stand legs, and are compatible with up to 4qty 48in or 24in fixtures. Complete systems include 4qty fixtures, 4qty bulbs, plus the Jumpstart dock system to link it all together.

Note About Horticultural Grow Lights:
About the lighting we use in-house
We've experimented with dozens of brands of grow lights in our grow rooms. Some work great, while others have failed before plant growth could have even been measured for a comparison. There are a ton of different terrarium plants we grow, and the required amount of usable PAR light ranges up & down by a factor of 10 depending on the species. We've always aimed to be open & honest about this stuff, and we're not big on "over-selling" something just for the bottom line. As of April 2019, the majority of plants we grow are still being kept under T5HO lights. We've discontinued almost all of our Mogul-Base CFLs (also called "Commercial Pendant Lights") in favor of LEDs for higher output & efficiency. We may decide to launch a couple new LED products after we're done with some long-term tests, but for now we're still big fans of T5HOs for medium-scale growing of terrarium plants. If you are a hobbyist looking to grow a tray or two worth of plants, even a simple CFL setup will work. If you are a larger-scale grower, it may be worth considering the custom LED route. We've had great luck with custom-designed 8-12ft long fixtures in our newest grow areas.
