Lighting

When you are growing hydroponic plants indoors, the right artificial lighting is very important. Plants need sunlight to grow and thrive, but when they are raised indoors the lighting takes the place of sunlight. Plants need light in order to grow and thrive, as they convert the sunlight into essential sugars they need to live in a process called photosynthesis.

When a plant is out of doors it needs at least 4-6 hours of direct sunshine every day, plus 8-10 more hours of bright light. For your inside hydroponics garden you will need to duplicate this with artificial light, shining 14-16 hours of light on your plants followed by 8-10 hours of darkness. The plants also need this time in the dark, so that they can rest and metabolize.

There are many different options available for hydroponic grow lights, so take the time to do your research and find out which ones are the best fit for you. Many grow lights are designed to accommodate for all stages of the growth cycle of the plant, so that they can facilitate the flowering, fruiting and vegetative stages of the plant growth cycle. This is why carefully choosing the right grow light for your plants is very important.
