Hey,

My students and I want to grow chives in our INDOOR aquaponics system. What light bulb would you suggest us using?

..
More detail on the setup could help... ie.. the arrangement could influence choice..
. you could check out ALIEXPRESS and search for. LED Grow Lamps..
. A fluorescent fitting gives a distributed light, and. There are tubes with colour intensities suited for plant growth.. these could be found at aquarium shops..

I have experimented starting seedlings with both CFLs and an LED light,both gave excellent results,my LED has the edge over the CFL and i think the LED would be more efficient at growing plants on from seedlings.

LED lights are the best option for indoor aquaponics

Hello!

Just a tip, when installing your lights, try putting them at the right height and spacing to provide adequate coverage to all your plants, consider a light mover to help provide even coverage with fewer lights :thumbright:
