How to Use Grow Lights on House Plants

Utilizing grow lights is a great way to give indoor plants the growth potential they need.

Grow lights are created to support photosynthesis for healthy plant growth.

1. Incandescent grow lights

These are the most common lights, and can be located at most hardware and grocery stores.

2. Fluorescent grow lights

Though pricier, they are long lasting. They give off full spectrum light for both flowering and vegetation plants.

The most high tech of the grow light types. They emit the least heat, and use the least energy.

4. HID grow lights
