That depends on what you're trying to grow and what phase the plant is in. Certain plants are adapted to grow in the shade or in warm, sunny environments. Depending on the plant, one type of light may work better than another. For example, if your plant needs a shadier environment, then a regular incandescent bulb may work best.

The other factor that goes into choosing the right grow light is what phase your plant is at. For example, a high-pressure sodium bulb may be best when your plant is in the flowering or fruiting stage.

Personally, I love using LED grow lights. Modern LED bulbs are more energy-efficient (they produce more light with less power), so they cost less in the long run. They also produce less heat, which means you don't have to worry about a ventilation system. Plus, they emit light wavelengths that correspond to the peak absorption peaks for most plants.

When choosing your bulb, you should look at the requirements of the plant and how those requirements change as the plant continues to grow. Keep in mind that the larger your plant gets, the more light it will need, so plan ahead.

I live in the Chicago area and bring most of my annuals in each winter. I put them in our basement (we have a dirt floor so it stays somewhat humid) and then put florescent lights right over the plant. You need to use both the warm bulbs and the cool ones together to get a reasonable spectrum of light. Add fans and you're all set. Even with inconsistent watering about 2/3 to 3/4 of the plants survive. At. Christmas instead of Poinsettias I have Inpatients Fushas and Geraniums are blooming all winter and last year my Jalapenos survived although the output was poor.
Good Luck, Maggie.

What are the best grow lights for indoor gardening?


There are lots of resources online to determine the Best LED Grow Lights It really depends on how much you are growing. If you have a few herbs, you obviously don't need a real powerful light. However, larger plants will require more coverage and power. Typically, the more wattage the more $ it will cost to run. Find one with high ratings, a good return policy, and powerful enough to be effective for what your indoor gardening requires. LED lights are getting better and more cost effective everyday. Best of luck.

I recently purchased on LED light from amazon and It was good. Here is the product link

I have fragment shards inside my grow light can i still use it or is it unsafe which im guessing it is ?


Yes it is most likely unsafe. It depends on which glass is broken, HID lamps often continue to operate when cracked or broken, resulting in emissions of harmful levels of ultraviolet (UV) radiation

Growing lights Types


There are three major types of lighting systems available right now: incandescent, fluorescent, and high intensity discharge. Incandescent lights are horribly inefficient (especially the screw-in "grow bulb" type) and really not an acceptable option for plant growth. Although they are inexpensive to purchase, their cost of operation makes them the costliest source of light.

Fluorescent or hid Comaparison


Until the early 1980's most indoor growers used fluorescent lights to illuminate their garden. These tubes have tremendous advantages over incandescents. They emit about 3 times as much light as an incandescent (given the same wattage), and the light spectrum is one that plants con use more effectively. However, they do certainly have their limitations. Light is emitted over a large area, so it is not concentrated. Because of this, the lights have to be hung very close to the plants (usually within 2" or so from the grow tips), and constantly moved to accommodate plant growth. This makes garden maintenance rather difficult, even when the lamps are hung on chains. Florescents are, however, very useful in cloning, and starting seedlings. Because in these stages, a plant is not growing vertically very quickly, the disadvantages of moving the lights are reduced. They also put out a more gentle light than the HID lamps, and release less heat. The fact that they produce less heat is very important to those growing in enclosed and not-especially-well ventilated spaces. If you choose to use fluorescents, it is best to purchase the 'cool white' variety. The ones that are sold as grow lamps (including grow-lux, vitalite, etc.) are much less efficient than a standard fluorescent, and just do not put out enough light to be useful. The slightly different spectrum produced by these lamps does nothing for most plants. Some growers have reported excellent results by using a mixture of cool-white and warm-white lamps in a florescent fixture.

How to get the right lamp?


It depends on your budget. HPS lamps are by far the best overall, but they are also the most costly to purchase and setup (although some less honest growers have a tendency to steal them from college campuses and the like). However, they are the cheapest to operate, and the utility savings does eventually add up.
