The highland lights are very attractive and functional. You can use them in normal lighting applications where they don't even look like grow lights. I have been able to turn a corner that would otherwise be completely dark into a lush jungle where I have fiddle leaf fig, monstera, natal mahogany, snake plant, calatheas and arrowhead plants all thriving. I used 7 lights on 2 different tracks and since I have low ceilings I directed the light from the opposing track so that it would not be too close and burn the plant. The heat from these lights is pretty minimal, you can even use your bare hands to adjust them after they have been on for a while. I prefer the highland lights to the aspect lights because the allow the light source to be somewhere else other than directly above the plant, this works very well in low ceiling situations with tall plants.
