The EnviroGro brand lamps are made by a company called Hydrofarm. They are one of the best grow light manufacturers in the US not only because they have 35 years of experience, but they also are one of the most trusted grow light production firms all over the world.
Why exactly these EnviroGro T5 lights are best for growing you ask? Because they not only have high lumen output and excellent hanging configurations, but they also emit much less heat than other grow lamps and they consume comparatively very little energy.
The lumen output of these light is 20000 lm that is double the light energy of normal fluorescent systems. But for this high lumen count surprisingly these lights consume only 216 Watts per hour.

The good thing about these lamps is also that they don’t emit a lot of heat. It means that you will be able to put these lamps very close to your plants and they won’t get burnt and you won’t have to install huge ventilation systems to cool the space where you are growing your plants.

So with these lights you will be able to successfully grow plants that are in vegetative stage of their growth. In other words these EnviroGro T5 4 Feat 4 Tube lights are best for growing very good and healthy leaves and stems and they can also give added boost to flowers.
These lamps are also pretty convenient, because they are 3 inches high, 13.5 inches wide and 46 inches long (7.62cm x 34.29cm x 116.84cm). And for this size and the materials that are used to make them – their interior is made of aluminium, but housing from powder coated steel – they weigh only 21.1 lbs (9.57kg). You will be able to hang them as you wish and as you need because they have three hanging configurations – overhead, vertical, and horizontal so you won’t need to look out for growing space where you can hang lamps just from the sealing.
