Best Light Bulbs For Indoor Plants

We have reached that time of the season where it is nigh impossible (depending on your precise location and hemisphere) to have your plants growing outdoors.  For some of us, our plants never grow outdoors because they are fragile enough to be extremely vulnerable to the fauna that exist specifically to eat our flora.  Growing indoors can be a challenge, but we have thankfully moved beyond the days where we would put our small pots on the kitchen windowsill and hope that the first few rays of sunlight in the waking hours of the morning would provide our sunflowers or basil the sustenance they need to get through the day and blossom in season.

Interest in growing our plants indoors is at a high and technology is doing a great job of providing us with the best resources available to assist our plants in being able to receive light and energy all day long without us running a pot from one end of the room to another to maximize exposure all day long.  There are five light bulbs we are going to look at and the “best” one will depend on the nature of what we are growing and how many plants we have, so it isn’t to say one is better than the others, they each fit a unique need.

Aceple LED Grow Light

A six watt light bulb designed for a single plant on a desk space, Aceple has created a light bulb that accelerates growth for indoor plants.

With multiple ways to install the desk lamp in your home or office, the Aceple LED Grow Light can clip to the edge of your countertop, desk, or table, it can rest atop a flat surface via double sided tape, or screw into the wall for those tighter spaces or hard to reach angles.  Speaking of hard to reach angles, the adjustable gooseneck arm of the Aceple LED Grow Light ensures that no matter how large or small your plant is, it will receive all the warmth and light it needs from the Aceple grow light.

Ppunson Dual Head UV & IR Plant Grow Light

Designed by Ppunson, this dual head ultraviolet and infrared grow light is designed to promote the growth of any plant you could ask in your home.  Designed with both red and blue LED lights, the Ppunson dual head grants lighting that is valuable both to flowering and seed producing plants, but also for stem and leaf based plants.

One of the nice features about the Ppunson model is that unlike some other dual head lamps on the market, each light is individually controlled.  If you are using them on separate plants at differing stages or with unique needs, you have the flexibility to individually control the lamps. While this may seem like a simple feature, it is not one that should be taken lightly.

Roleadro LED Grow Light

With the Roleadro LED Grow Light we have not just a mere desk lamp featuring anywhere from four to ten lights, we actually get 169 multicolored LED lights that alternate color types in a specified pattern designed to promote growth both from a stem and leaf standpoint as well as a flower and seed yield.  With an ideal 2.25:1 red:blue ratio, you can rest assured that the energy you are giving your plants is in line with the scientific standard for optimum growth.

Deckey 225LED Grow Light

Armed with 225 LED lights, the Deckey Grow Light advertises that current users are reporting plant growth and yields between two to three times as large as traditional lighting.  One of the nicest things about the Deckey unit compared to some of the others is its energy efficiency – up to 80% more efficient than some of its competitors.

Maygrow 1500W  LED Grow Light

Arguably the largest and most intense grow light in our list, the Maygrow 1500W is designed specifically for those with larger growing setups or a series of plants that require high energy.  The LEDs in the Maygrow are a consistent mixture of red and blue to provide the highest quality lighting for both flowering and leaf-based plants.

Closing

Any of these light bulbs will help grow your indoor plants more effectively than traditional fluorescent light, but the larger your setup, the farther down this list you want to be; and for any of the overhead lighting needs, we would strongly recommend the Maygrow 1500 as it provides its users with the highest quality and greatest versatility.
