Hi! I just listened to your podcast on grow lights and I know you mentioned you’d put up some links of recommended lights. I’m having a hard time finding those links! Thanks!
So glad you posted this comment, Amber! We forgot to put in the links on the show notes. That has been changed, thanks to you.
