Grow lights can be used to keep plants healthy and thriving during winter months
- Oct 16, 2018 -

There are times when a windowsill is all one needs to grow a plant indoors, but when germinating seeds, overwintering established plants or giving the spring crops a head start when the days are too cold and short to plant outdoors, using grow lights to mimic the sunlight needed for plants to grow may be the answer the eager gardener is looking for.

Sunlight is one of the essential components for plant growth. The sun fuels photosynthesis, but the right grow lights can simulate the sun's action. Although virtually any light will stimulate the growing process, not all artificial lights will provide the best conditions for growth. Some may run too hot, while others lack the spectrum of light for optimal growth. Blue light is likelier to promote plant growth while red light will encourage flowering.  Selecting the right grow lights can give the indoor gardener an edge that will pay off handsomely with healthy plants ready to transplant when springtime finally rolls around.
