Default Re: Suggestions for begginer plants

You need at least 1 watt of light per gallon to have reasonable success with even the simplest of plants. I don't know what substrate you now have, but if the grains are a 1/16" to 1/4" dia mix it will work for beginning plants.......Read the plant topic at the top of the main forum page.....Picking the easiest low light plants is the way to start.
