There are three main elements a plant needs to grow and thrive: soil, water, and light. While nature provides all three of those when growing plants outside, inside is a different story. Providing well-fertilized soil and water is easy enough to do, but light is where things can get a bit tricky. If you don't have access to enough natural sunlight in your home — either because of the types of windows in your home or where they are placed — plants will not flourish.
Grow lights are a great way to provide fake sunlight so indoor plants can grow successfully, to start seedlings indoors while the weather warms its way up to spring, or to cultivate fruits, vegetables, and herb plants so you can have access to them all year long.
This guide will walk you through the best grow lights out there today so you can have thriving plants growing indoors, no matter the season.
