Types of Clip-On Grow Lights for Indoor Plants

When winter approaches, the days get shorter, and indoor plants don't receive enough sunlight to continue their life cycle such as flowering.

Indoor grow lights can give natural light to different plants in small spaces so they continue growing even on dark days of winter.

Different types of lights are used for indoor plants for different sizes of grow spaces and different plants.

Fluorescent Lights This type of light is primarily used for seedling, vegetable, or herb growing, but they are being replaced by more sustainable lights.

Low-light plants like a ZZ Plant will also thrive under these bulbs, as they enjoy the indirect impact.

High-Intensity Discharge Lights HID grow lights are used for their light intensity and brightness. The bright light from HIDs makes illuminating large, strangely constructed areas easier.

An HID grow light closely mimics the natural light that plants would get from the sun, making it more efficient for large-scale growers  like greenhouses or farms.

Light Emitting Diodes Lights LED Lights are the most cost-efficient option for indoor gardening. LEDs consume less energy, produce less heat, and use a semiconductor chip that makes them glow.

You can manually pick and choose the color spectrum for most LED lights. This allows you to select the optimal light spectrum for various plants at any stage of their life!

Modular LED Lights Modular LED lights are similar to regular LED lights, except that the diodes operate independently  when power runs.

Modular LEDs also wick heat faster than traditional LEDs – although heat production isn't usually an issue with LED grow lights.
