How do I make attractive plant lights?
Hello! I'm a new plant enthusiast and was wondering if anyone here had input in my struggle to balance function, budget and design. I fell in love with Soltech Solutions Aspect light on Instagram, but can't pay the pretty penny. I'm thinking of getting a simple hanging fixture from ikea (image attached) and finding a suitable bulb to use with it. Does anyone have any other ideas to make grow lights for indoor plants more attractive?

The photo you posted looks nice, Cassie. I've also used clip-on adjustable types for plant lights. Mine weren't black but looked sort of like this:
Of course that style won't fit all decor and there has to be a surface to clip to.
Thanks, Lisabeth. In the past, I had a similar clip light that was very unattractive. What kind of bulb did you use?
