Could someone help clarify the types of grow lighting. I see you can buy these very expensive small units that don't seem to have a very big foot print but you can buy cheap led grow bulbs that combined seem to cost much less per square foot of coverage. I realize the difference is probably output per square foot but how do I find out how much I really need? It would seem to me that if the average system puts out a medium output that perhaps the bulbs might be just about worthless.

I use household 15w LED bulbs and it seems that most plants grow well with one bulb per square foot.
