Does anyone use grow lights? My house is pretty dark and I feel like it would be helpful and open up more plant options. Any recommendations or things to avoid?

Look for wavelengths that fit your needs - if you're growing seedlings, you'll need a light with the right wavelength. Multispectrum lights will work on new or established plants. Some are white if you don't want to have it super obvious that you have a grow light.

I got a grow light from Amazon that has different strength settings, self timer (huge for traveling), and different colors. I only have north facing windows and while my plants are for low-light I didn’t think they were getting enough in the winter. I can tell a huge difference. My plants are greener and seem to be growing more. It clips on to my tv stand and isn’t the most attractive option, but it works!

I would say experiment with different strengths and timing. Your plants will let you know if they’re happy 😃

There are many that can be screwed into a standard desk lamp!

I need advice from the collective. It seems like there is a trend to sell wine in unique bottles. The only problem with this, those bottles will not fit into my wine fridge. Has anyone transferred wine to standard bottles and are you concerned about the wine one it hits the air? I’ve looked at vacuum stoppers but not sure if this is a good idea or not.
