DIY Indoor Seed Starting Rack

If you are looking to get a head start on your spring gardening, you can always start your seeds indoors. This simple diy seed growing rack will be perfect for the job. It is basically a shelving unit, with lights to simulate the sun for your plants and seeds.

You can build one with wheels so you can easily move it to a different location, however one without will work just fine too. How many seeds you can grow, will depend on how many shelves and space you have to place your seedling trays. This is a cheap diy home project.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Shelving Unit.
  • 4ft shop lights
  • Fluorescent bulbs
  • S Hooks
  • Power strip
  • Seedling Trays
  • Timer (optional)
  • Heating mats (optional)

If you purchase a shelving unit, then the first thing you want to do is set it up following the instructions. Once you have a standing unit you hook on your S hooks, followed by the shop lights. The shop lights fixtures have chains, that will allow you to adjust the level of your florescent lighting as your seeds grow.

Initially you want the lights to be as close to your trays as possible. In colder areas, heating mats may need to be placed under your trays to aide with germination. Not all plants do well when grown under fluorescent lighting. This type of shelf should work for growing your tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, okra,  squash, and herbs.
