Love it! Looks condensed but at the same time, not too overcrowded with plants.

My current PL lighting has 24 watts single tube and i want to increase it to 36 watts. my lfs tells me that the ballast will not support it.

Can the ballast itself be changed to support 36 watts ?

Yes, if you can change the ballast, but the ballast for 36watts maybe larger and might not fit into the casing
