I have made grow light stands before. The first one was an elaborate stand on the floor, two tier, four flat stand that I got the directions for from a gardening magazine. It took up a lot of space and when we moved there was no room for it. Where I live now, I only have my patio window and kitchen window for good light, so I had to get more creative. Last year I found a table top stand in a magazine. Time to shop Menard's! PVC piping is easy to work with and much cheaper! I got the final product for under $25 instead of buying the magazine version for $84.99 plus S&H.

Mine cost less than $25 with most of the cost being the light for around $17
I sketched out a plan according to how big a growing flat was.
I keep most of my houseplants outside on the deck in the summer. Some like it under the awning with indirect light. I also water them every day and fertilize them once a week which I found out even my cactus loves!
Let the gardening season begin!
