My friends told me to try some LED Grow lights. Does it really work?

When something new like this shows up and you want to know if it really works, check out the hash grower sites. They can afford to check out all the new stuff.

I'm not trying to be funny, but how do you think the marijuana growers succeed in growing their plants indoors? Yes, grow lights work, and you would want to make sure that you have the full spectrum kind.

Also keep in mind that you need powerfull lights and distance matters.

Here is a link that might be useful:

They do seem to work but with mixed results based on spectrum and available lumens. An indoor light is much less powerful than the sun.

Though from my research the cheaper ones don't provide such great results, but it will depend on what you want to grow with them.

I'm interested in keeping my Myers lemon tree alive during the winter months and am looking for a grow light.

I was warned not to buy used because the bulbs only last so long.

You can try a hydroponic site and see what they have to offer.

I don't think so. I haven't known that yet.

In my opinion, sunlight is the best, natural and Eco friendly light. I am not saying bad about those of LED lights, but it is my personal opinion.
