Fluorescent Grow Lights Supplies – Minneapolis St. Paul, MN
When it comes to general indoor gardening, there are many situations where fluorescent grow lights are your best choice, even though they generate relatively lower energy output. The diffuse light from a fluorescent fixture requires that the fixture be placed very close to the plants to provide adequate lighting. In most cases, that means it’s most useful for new plants and propagation gardens. Once the plants are well started, they can be moved to new locations, either in an outdoor garden or an indoor garden where High Intensity Discharge lighting can take over to promote healthy growth for flower and fruit production. Fluorescent grow lights are also ideal for many tropical plants, like Orchids and African Violets, which have a natural environment in the dim light under the canopy of a tropical rain forest.
Wherever you use fluorescent grow lights, standard, general-purpose bulbs won’t get the job done. They don’t have the proper color spectrum to support plant growth. High output fluorescent grow light bulbs, either straight line or compact fluorescent are designed specifically for the needs of indoor gardeners. They are available in cool 6500 Kelvin, best for vegetative plant growth, and 3000 Kelvin, for blooming growth. They can also be combined in a single, multi-bulb fixture for full spectrum lighting. At Interior Gardens, Twin Cities growers will find the largest selection of these products at best prices.
