This is a PVC plant light stand which you can make yourself. This plant stand has 3 shelves. One could be made with only 2 shelves if you are not starting that many seedlings. Each shelf will hold 4 standard (10" x 20") nursery flats. Cost to construct this unit is approximately $100 to $120 including the flourescent shop lights, but no shelving material. This unit is narrow enough that you can use the nursery flats to hold your plants and so no shelves are actually needed.

You will need:
  • 10' lengths of 1" schedule 40 PVC (7 to 8 pieces)
  • (40) - 1" tees
  • Hand held PVC cutting tool (it's worth it)
  • Tape measure
  • Sharpie marker (or similar marker - pencil will work)
  • (6)narrow flourescent shop light fixtures holding 2 tubes each
    and having long cords
  • (1)electrical power bar with 6 outlet plugs
  • Automatic timer for ease of turning lights on and off automatically

Cut the pieces as follows:
  • (16) - 19-1/2" horizontal long pieces
  • (16) - 3" horizontal short pieces
  • (12) - 14" vertical side pieces
  • (12) - 15" horizontal cross pieces
  • (4) - 5" legs
