Supplementing with Grow Lights
When winter rolls around, the days get shorter, the sun disappears for days on end, and we as humans really feel that. So do our plants. Plants go dormant in the winter meaning they do not need fertilizer or as much water but they still need sunlight to be able to photosynthesize. Grow lights can be very beneficial to your plants in the winter and if you generally have a low light home throughout the year. From moving your plants indoors to the sun's angles shifting in the winter, you may need to adjust where your plants are and the amount of sunlight they get each day. There are a couple different types of grow lights that we will discuss to help figure out which is best for your space.
