With grow lights, you’re no longer bound to the whims of Mother Nature. You can top your salad with sprouts, harvest fresh herbs or watch bright flowers bloom even on dull winter days. Gardeners will love that they can start seeds months before the last frost, and the home chef can make wholesome meals with year-round microgreens. With indoor plant lights, children can get involved and learn about nature and build basic skills as they care for their food from seed to supper.
Make Your Own Sunshine
Our options range from lightweight LED grow lights, which don’t hum or have lamps to replace, to the brightest High-Intensity Discharge lights. With an air-cooled HID system to filter your space, plants thrive with no sunlight at all. Leafy kinds love this efficient option, as it produces the most light per watt and doesn’t cast a colored glow. That means it’s ideal in a living area, too. High Pressure Sodium bulbs last even longer and produce light that works well for flowers.
If you’re just about to begin, fluorescent grow lights are more budget-friendly. Some crops prefer their softer glow, which is perfect to boost low sunlight. A plant lamp with a reflector helps bounce light further so you can expand your garden later.
Will you transplant seedlings outside? Start them in an egg carton in your indoor greenhouse. When planted, the carton will break down in the soil, but until then they’ll nestle right under your gardening light.
