Tomato Plants Grown with LED Grow Lights
This is the second part of my journey of saving my summer tomato plants. In my blog post, Tomato Plants Grown From Stem Cuttings, I grew plants from stem cuttings of my very successful summer tomato plant.

LED Grow Lights and Grow Tent
I purchased a high powered LED light fixture (Solar Extreme 500) from California Lightworks, a US company. It's a full spectrum LED light that covers 16 square feet. I was tempted to buy cheaper Amazon LED lights, but I wanted to purchase lights from company that had a 3-year guarantee. I bought a grow tent from Spider Farmer that is large enough to house 5 to 6 plants and a fan and duct tubing for ventilation.
