Fast Plants Light Box

The first step in getting ready to grow our FastPlants has been to make a light box for the plants to grow in. We used the on-the-cheap instructions on their website to make ours.

  • Plastic Crate: mouldering in garage
  • Aluminum Foil: stolen from kitchen supply
  • Light Socket: $2.09 (plus tax)
  • Extension Cord: from garage
  • 26W CFL: $6.49 (plus tax, for two bulbs)
  • Tape, Glue, Scissors: from craft supplies
  • Dremel for making a hole: from the garage
Total Price (for light box and six years (or so) of lightbulbs): $8.58 plus tax

The finished product:
