Whether you're an extreme gardener, prefer greenhouses or are simply starting your spring garden indoors during the remaining cold months, all plants need sunlight and the best way to get it indoors is by using plant grow light bulbs.
How Grow Lights Work
Grow lights work by simulating natural light and assuming traits similar to those that a plant outdoors would experience under ideal conditions. These lamps are designed to be used indoors and to advocate plant growth, flowering and fruiting by providing the appropriate shades of light from the electromagnetic color spectrum. Different types of lighting will emit various degrees of light and colors needed for the photosynthesis process.Using grow lights on your indoor plants is an excellent option if you live in an area that doesn’t get many hours of daylight. However, no matter where you live or what time of year it is, grow lights are great for indoor gardening. Even plants grown near a window will probably not get enough light during the winter months to thrive.If you’re thinking about adding grow lights to your indoor garden, you have to consider which bulbs to use and why.
