You no longer need a green thumb to become a plant whisperer—now, having a flourishing indoor garden can be as quick and easy as screwing in a lightbulb. GE Lighting's new LED Grow Lights use the same technology that commercial indoor farmers have been using for years, and they may just make your plants grow even faster than if they were in an outdoor environments.
Here's how it works: the Grow Lights feature a prescribed light spectrum with high Photosynthic Photon Flux. Although that may sound like a whole load of gibberish, PPF is necessary for plant growth, and the higher the PPF number, the more light there is for photosynthesis and growth—AKA stronger and healthier plants. According to their press release, GE's Grow Lights feature the highest PPF in the industry.
GE makes two different light spectrums to use at different times in a plant's life cycle (although you can use them both at the same time for maximum nourishment): the Balanced Light spectrum mixes blue and red light, and is perfect for plants in the early and mid-stages of growth while the Reproductive Red spectrum should be used for plants entering the flowering or fruiting stages of growth.
Grow Light bulbs are sold individually or installed in 2 and 4-foot fixtures for your more ambitious growing projects—and don't worry, these bulbs emit a soft white natural light, making anywhere you put your indoor garden a pleasant one.
