The plants which grow outdoor in the sunlight, similarly indoor plants grow best under full-spectrum bulbs, which produce a balance of cool and warm light that reproduces the natural solar spectrum. They’re outstanding for seedlings as well as houseplants, cooking herbs, and other plants. A wintertime harvest of herbs and salad greens can also be grown under lights. By learning how plants use light and about the fixture options, you can select an indoor grow lights system that is right for the plants you want to grow.

Which is better LED or Fluorescent?

Both of them produce full-spectrum light. LEDs are better for the environment and cost-efficient. Both deliver bright, full-spectrum lights to the plants with an additional spike of blue light to incite stronger root growth, increase photosynthesis, and high growth.

  1. High-tech LEDs are regulated specifically for indoor plants growth.
  2. LEDs use half the electricity and are 5 times longer than fluorescent bulbs.
  3. They are earth-friendly.

Indoor growing lights come in different types, sizes, shapes, and colors — from simple light bulbs to fluorescent tubes to mercury lamps. Making the best choice can be challenging.

The first thing to start with is the light quality. Sunlight contains all colors of the rainbow. Specific colors like red and blue wavelengths in light rays are important for good plant growth. Leaves reflect the yellow and green rays of the visible spectrum, so they get little energy from these colors.

Incandescent light bulbs are not particularly good at giving a natural balance of the wavelengths that plants need. These bulbs are a good source of red rays but produce little blue light to help the plants grow.

Fluorescent lights provide the best artificial light for indoor plants, and some are designed to produce specific colors or approximate natural sunlight. The most common fluorescent tubes are cool white, which produces plenty of light in the blue range.


If your goal is long-lasting, low-maintenance lighting, LED lighting is a strong and reliable choice. s for agricultural operations need to be as powerful as possible without sacrificing cost-efficiency. Contact us at uncabled to learn more about lighting options for your needs.
