Introduction to indoor horticulture
There are many reasons someone may choose to grow plants indoors. You may not have access to a garden, or the local climate may not be suited to your chosen plant. Or you may simply wish for some discretion in your growing and choose to produce your crop in private. Whatever your reason, it’s possible to have a bountiful harvest if you choose the right grow light lamps.
Photoperiod length & energy efficiency
One of the things you will need to consider is what’s called the photoperiod length. This is the amount of sunlight your plant would normally require to bloom if it was growing in the wild, and your grow light lamps will need to be switched on for a corresponding amount of time. This varies from plant to plant, depending on which time of year it normally blooms in. A “short-day” plant, for example, expects 8 hours of uninterrupted sunlight per day.
To run an old-fashioned incandescent bulb for that length of time would use 0.8 kWh, which is an impractical amount of energy usage for the average home grower. Obviously, the more you can do to cut down on that energy usage, the greater the financial reward.
Picking the right grow light lamps: Starter sets
Most starter sets will offer a single CFL (compact fluorescent bulb) or some other kind of fluorescent grow light. These starter kits are generally fine for someone looking to try their hand at indoor growing and you should be able to grow a single plant without any issues. The problem with most starter sets as offered by other companies is that they’re not scalable, meaning that if you do decide to increase the number of plants being grown, you’ll need to start from scratch.
Picking the right grow lights: Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium lights
These lights were traditionally used for indoor growing before being made largely obsolete by advances in modern technology. Some grow light sellers still offer them to customers without warning of the disadvantages so it’s important to be aware of why you might want to steer clear of these lights.
One of the main selling points of a metal halide or HPS light is that you can use it in a standard light fitting without needing any further specialist equipment. However, they can generate an incredible amount of heat, especially if you have multiple lights set up. So that means that you will have to invest in some kind of ventilation solution, as well as taking proper precautions to reduce the risk of fire.
LED grow lights are still a developing technology and some LED grow lights are better than others. Even if you do get the right equipment, setting them up in an optimal fashion can still be a challenge. That’s why some growers still stick to the older, more expensive solutions like metal halide grow lights.
