Unfortunately, I have absolutely no experience in electrical work, which the instructions in the 3.0 MAMA incorrectly assumes for those hanging lights. Granted, I had no experience with airpumps and plumbing, but those were very well explained. I just wish the electrical components also were explained so well (video tutorial or careful diagrams). Furthermore, I could not find anything called a “pin socket” at Lowes.
So If you are like me and completely hopeless with electrical wiring, Here is an alternative.
1. Depending on how many plants you have, select that many extension cords, lights and sockets with plug-ins.
2. Plug the sockets into the ends of each extension cord and space them vertically as you please.
3. Tie off the slack of each extension cord and tie the cords together at intervals with lock ties (or string if you don’t have any lock ties on hand)
4. Guide the cords with hooks to keep them out of the way of the farm. (Because my farm is leaning against my fridge, I have the lights climbing up the fridge and then go through some rings on top of the fridge, which I keep in place with magnetic tape.)
5. Plug in all the extension cords into a circuit breaker. I actually only had three lights and I found a special outdoor plug that had three outlets, so I used that instead.
It is probably not the most efficient set up, but until I come up with something else, this will work splendidly!
