You can squeeze in this indoor plant light wherever you need it.
Everybody seems to be in love with big houseplants these days. If your window space is as limited as mine, here's the solution. Now you can fit that fiddle leaf fig, monstera, or tropical palm in the corner without worry.
This Agrobrite Floor Plant Lamp has an innovative compact fluorescent light (CFL) that mimics natural light so well, you can use the lamp for a reading light, if you want. What's more, you can adjust the height and direction with the flexible neck.
You can harvest basil and lettuce right in your kitchen with the Compact 2-Tier SunLite Garden (shown below).
Its footprint is small -- just over 2 feet of floor space. Energy-efficient T-5 fluorescent lights are so bright you can even start seeds under these full-spectrum lights.
Need more space? You'll want to check out the LED SunLite High Intensity 3-Tier Garden. It's big enough for your seedlings, herbs, orchids...wait a minute...you may just want to expand your house plant collection to make full use of this light garden.
Shining light on your plants couldn't get any easier.
Casting full-spectrum light, the LED SunLite Compact Tabletop Garden works best for foliage plants and seed starting. If you have indoor plants that are struggling with too little light, you may be surprised at how well they'll respond to this table light.
The distance you put between the plants and light fixture depends on your plants. Most tropical foliage plants thrive under moderate-to-bright (indirect) natural light, so having the indoor plant lights source about 8-10 inches (20-25 cm) above your plants should suit them. If you're growing herbs, you'll want them closer.
This fixture has pull chains to easily adjust to the right height. It's a good idea to experiment until you find what works best.
Aim to keep the light on continuously for 12 to 14 hours a day. Remember, plants need a rest, too, so this will give them the 10 to 12 hours of darkness they need.
Keep herbs close at hand -- or your flowering plants in bloom year-round -- with this Bamboo LED Grow Light Garden for Succulents and Seeds.
It's sized just right for smaller plants or seedlings, yet provides the same, powerful LED as the big light stands. Use it for any foliage, flowering, or seed starting plants and watch them thrive like never before.
As a rule, herbs and flowering plants need higher light intensity than foliage plants. Keep the light fixture 6-10 inches (15-25 cm) above the plants for 12 to 14 hours per day. Experiment with light duration to see what works best for your plants.
And don't forget...they need a rest at night. Some flowering house plants won't set buds unless they get at least 12 hours of continuous darkness. Plug your light fixture into a Power Strip with Timer so that the lights are turned on and off at the same times every day.
Spread sunshine along any dimly lit wall, hallway or corner with this attractive Barnyard Pendant LED Grow Light.
Inside the ultra-sleek aluminum shade is a full-spectrum LED bulb, ideal for keeping your houseplants lush and leafy. Hang it above a floor plant, or suspend it over a table topped with African violets, orchids or any other sunlight-loving plants.
This stylish hanging light fixture will blend in with your decor. No one will know it's a grow light except you...and your healthy, green houseplant.
