A growing trend in major East Coast cities is to convert abandoned buildings into indoor gardens that produce food to feed the community. This trend comes about as a result of a lack of green space on the ground for community gardens to grow. The added benefit is that many gardens on multiple levels of these buildings can thrive and produce a lot more food than just one community garden on the ground. You will need a lot of supplies to do this, including grow lights for indoor plants. Here’s how to grow lights for indoor plants work.
Artificial Sunlight at Your Control
These grow lights mimic the sun with near-perfect accuracy. That’s good for any plant you grow in the building because not nearly enough sunlight can reach all the way into the building on every floor. You can control how much sunlight the plants receive and when they get this sunlight because even plants need a rest period from the sunlight and growing time. Flip the “sun” on and off with a switch. Some produce plants won’t mind having the light on almost all the time, but other produce plants need eight hours of darkness each day. The ability to control the amount of faux sunlight really makes a difference.
Grow Lights Are So Good Plants Can Easily Photosynthesize
You might be concerned about a plant’s ability to photosynthesize. Photosynthesis is a plant’s means of producing the green color in its leaves and “fruit”. These grow lights create fake sunlight so well that this isn’t a problem.
