Choosing the Right Grow Lights

We consider grow lights to be the number one most important purchase when it comes to an indoor garden. Without them, everything else you need to grow indoors successfully is quite literally worthless.

Most people think that grow lights are only used in very specific situations, but they have a myriad of uses for gardeners of all kinds. Here are a few common ways indoor grow lights are used:

  • To grow plants from start to finish in an indoor grow system
  • To start seeds in preparation for the spring growing season
  • To finish off plants that need a bit more sun than the season is providing
  • To successfully propagate and root cuttings
  • As a way to extend the daylight hours for plants grown in the sun
  • To grow plants harvested at a young age, like baby greens, herbs, and microgreens

Because there are so many reasons to use grow lights, there are a lot of things to consider when it comes to buying, using, and caring for a light. This article will get into just about everything you need to know when it comes to lights, with links to even more in-depth guides for specific topics. [Read More @ Epic Gardening]
