Here is our beginner’s guide. Make Your Indoor Garden Shine The key to gardening indoors is understanding how plants use light, then providing what they need.

(a) Light-emitting diode light(s) can sustain normal plant growth. Pioneer experiments on plant growth under red LEDs on lettuce were reported by Bula et al.[]Martineau et al. [] calculated that the amounts of dry matter per mole of artificial lighting gained by lettuce grown using red ( nm) LEDs or high-pressure sodium lamps were identical, and Chang et by:   The wavelengths in sunlight contain all the colors of the rainbow while artificial light often lacks a few.

Plants need both blue and red hues to thrive, so you need to make sure any artificial light you provide contains plenty of both. Failing to provide one or the other can weaken plants. These lettuce plants are growing under the high-output LED lamps in the Low Bamboo LED Grow Light Garden.

Most leafy greens and cool-season herbs have a compact to medium-sized growth habit that is perfect for small spaces such as your kitchen or living room corner. Fix the Grow Light Setup.
