Hi,

I am new to growing succulents, and i have been reading on artificial light used to grow them because i rarely can receive sunlight from my apartment.

I would like to know if the below T5 LED lights that i've bought are suitable for growing them?

succulents are easy to take care. i have a few on my table next to my windows, and they only get a few hour of sunlight a day
so far no problem. no need extra artificial lights

Get the LED grow light about 45w to 100w work well. Depending on the area or height (plants to light).
