Garden Lights

The first step to growing a garden is to make sure you have the right kind of light. Plants need at least six hours of sunlight per day, so if you don't have a greenhouse or access to natural sunlight, consider getting artificial lights for your indoor plants.

There are three main types of lamps: fluorescent tubes (the most common), metal halide lamps and high pressure sodium lamps. The most important thing is to choose one that gives off the type of spectrum needed by your specific plant species--you'll know because it will say so on the packaging!
