Lux (not the soap kind)

In reply to Dan Undsworth's comment regarding lux meter, I purchased said item last year from said auction site and have found it useful in gauging the amount of light the plants are receiving,as you can see in the photos mine are getting approx 2500 lux which is more than enough. Anything over 1800 is good according to the so called experts who knows? but it worked for me last year and if it aint broke don't fix it  Linda still has no voice :-) don't worry she does not read this unlike other peoples wives lol.

As can be seen from the picture the sensor is on a retractable cord
 allowing the user to check the light intensity at the back


  1. Paul,i assume it must cost you a fortune in electric especialy over a pieriod of 12 weeks or more. What kw do they use.

  2. Thanks Paul, didn't realise you could buy something like that and have always wondered how much light there is in my greenhouse during the winter. Have now given a massive hint to my wife as xmas is so close :-)

  3. Geoffo it is not cheap but worth it
    Marcus glad to be of service
