Re: buying from thestates
Any converter should will work as long as it produces at least a 75 watt output, it really only takes around 50 watts at peak but better to have to much power than not enough. As for someplace cheaper I would suggest you try ecogro.com they are one of my sources for grow equipment and have the best prices. not much you can do about the shipping charge, sorry. Good luck and happy gardening.

hi, a word of warning , the ignition voltage of a metal halide( grow light ) is many thousands of volts . the first thing to try is a replacement bulb , next is replace the ignitor ( usually a small block with 3 terminals ). a metal halide lamp can often look to be perfect when infact its internally blown . hope this helps
well i recently also bought a aerogarden classic which i presume you to have it states in the aerogarden hand book in the master gardener kit ( which is a seperate seed kit purchase grow your own seed kit in other words! ) it states " even though great care and consideration is taken into producing the grow pods and selecting of seeds long transportation in humid or wet conditions may destry the seed" but this does not sound like you situation it clearly statets standard germination rate for a aergo garden is 4 days to rwo weeks tops you should also take into consideration if the size of seed some seeds have a greater tolerenace of water and need a bit more time for the water to germinate the seed regarding any more answers feel free to ask me on firstname.lastname@example.org
or easy enough read through this simple PDF its not relevant to the gourmet herb kit but the genral processes apply to all seed kits and gives you some good advice on all aspects from pruning to haarvesting and most challenging of all whe you have fruitnig crop how to polinate.
This is more than likely what has happened . I am going to guess that your original low voltage trasformer was a 120 volt .6KW. Or 600watt transformer that has one lead from it to the lights . The newer less expensive transformer is also 600 watts , but the new one may have 2 sets of wire terminals on the back( 4 screws ). If this is the case , you have a transformer that is 600 watts output but it has 2 seperate 300 watt outputs that won't run 600 watts from 1 set of output screws . You will have to seperate the lighting load and may have to run an additional low voltage wire to half of your lights . In other words . Put 300 watts of light on 1 set of 12volt output screws and 300 watts on the other se of output screws .that will solve your issue . Good luck and enjoy your lights again . John
