If you’ ve ever wanted to tend a garden but don’t have appropriate outdoor space to do so, or If you’re trying to grow houseplants indoors, yet you find that some rooms of your house are low in natural light? You don’t know what house plants likes low light, what indoor plants that like shade? No worry about these any more!
First, there are plenty of plants you can easily grow indoor. The household plants and vegetables. Such as, YoAfrican Violets, Anise Hyssop, Anthurium, Arugula, Basil, Bird’s Nest Fern, Borage, Burro’s Tail, Calathea, Celery, Carrots, Celery, Chervil, Chinese Evergreen, Chives, Christmas Cactus, Dracaena. Certainly, if you are prefer to succulent plants, that’s will be more convenient! Such as, Christmas Cactus, Jade Plant, Aloe Vera, Panda Plant, Ponytail Palm, Snake Plant and so on. All in all, lots of plants can be grown indoor. Beecause these plants that can be grown indoors without sunlight. So many plants that grow well without sunlight. Never worry about it.
Second, sunlight is the least thing to care about. Because we can instead artifical light of the sunlight now!
Indeed, sunlight is the perfect balance of wavelengths necessary for plant growth and blooming, but you can also use artificial light to help your plants along. In fact, low-light foliage plants (such as pothos and peace lily) can grow quite nicely in windowless offices with enough artificial light.
Now, you may be puzzled, how many different types of artificial light for optimal plant growth? And how you choose the most appropriate one?
The idea that there are different types of light isn’t obvious, but it can be a critical thing to understand so you can make the most of your plant lights. We’re talking about light itself here, indoor grow lights, and indoor plant lights, not fixtures, fluorescent grow lights, or grow light bulbs.
Basically, you need to know about blue and red wavelengths in light. Without getting into an in-depth lecture about the physical properties of light, you can remember a couple of basic facts. Red light will encourage plants to flower or produce fruit, and blue light boosts leaves and foliage growth.
Most typical lights are a balanced blend of the two, and known as full-spectrum light. When in doubt, or if you are trying to accommodate many different plants with one light, stick with this.
For plants that do need a little more than ambient light, you’ll want to have your lamps set up closer to the plants to get that extra intensity. When using a bulb type that doesn’t generate any heat (fluorescent or LED), you can set up your lights quite close to the plants.
Now you can get the point why we design KMERLIFE Plant Annular Ring Light like this. The full-spectrum light, grow lights for indoor plants, makes your plant get required light waves. The adjustable hight make sure the annular ring light get closer to leaves, and the household plant can absorb more light. By the way, this light can use as hydroponic lights as well. The setting process is so easy that you can enjoy it as diy led grow light.
If you are not sure whether you need turn off the grow light at night, I can tell you that yes, you need turn it off for at least a while. In general, you should not leave grow lights on 24/7. Plants need a light-dark cycle to develop properly. It's believed that they truly do “rest” during periods of darkness, and probably use this time to move nutrients into their extremities while taking a break from growing.
Similarly, should you use grow lights 24 hours a day?
It is not recommended to leave your grow light running for 24 hours straight. Twenty four hours of light can prevent a plant from effectively carrying out the respiration process. If your plant is not responding to 12 or 18 hours of light, you may need a stronger grow light or you may need to feed your plant nutrients.
Certainly, you can make it easily with our Built-In Automatic Timer. The KMERLIFE halo ring plant lights built-in automatic timer, which is automatically 16 hours on and 8 hours off. The mode makes sure plants absorb enough light to do photosynthesis and enough time to rest. No need to remind yourself to turn led lights on or off again and over again. No worries about forgetting to turn the light off no matter where you are.
Growing plants indoors with artificial light, from now on!!!
A Little Tip:
Will full spectrum lights grow plants?
Like plants growing outdoors in the sunlight, indoor plants grow best under full-spectrum bulbs, what KMERLIFE Annular Plant Ring Light has, which produce a balance of cool and warm light that replicates the natural solar spectrum. They're excellent for seedlings as well as houseplants, culinary herbs and other plants.
So never worry about your green plants lack of light if you use KMERLIFE full-spectrum plant light. You can adjust the time of soaking up the light by Auto-Timer, all settings are automaticlly!
The Benefits of Full Spectrum Light for Plants
Traditional LED arrays tend to only emit the spectrums that activate after the photorespiration period takes place ( grow lights with dominant red and blue LEDs). This is the reason traditional LED lights sometimes finish cycles with immature plants that produce low yields. By supplying plants with only the limited “beneficial” spectrums (pink light) from traditional LED arrays, you are essentially putting them into a permanent chill mode. You may end up with some healthy plants, but they will not yield as much or be as healthy as plants under a full spectrum LED grow light. If red and blue light were truly all that plants needed then why do HPS lights which don’t have much of either color outperform them? The answer is intensity which plants go for first then spectrum. When you give your plants both intensity and full spectrum light they will pay you back every time.
