Chances are if you have been doing any type of gardening at all, then you have probably heard about growing lights. But do growing lights work, really work that is? The short answer is that yes they do. The longer answer is that they will only work if you choose the right kind of light to use. All grow lights seek to reproduce the same kind of light that the sun makes, thus being able to help stimulate a plant into growing.
Traditionally speaking there are three kinds of lights that are used to grow plants, and they are fluorescent, metal halide, and high pressure sodium lights. While there have been some recent advances with LED, they haven't really been able to really make them as effective as the traditional methods yet. While you can always try the hit or miss method for determining which one will work in your particular situation, that isn't really that effective. Instead, here is a brief description of each and how each one works.
