Lighting is divided into four main types as incandescent lights, fluorescent lamps, new spectrum fluorescent lights and LED lights. When searching online, you'll quickly discover that all new types of grow lights make use of LED technology. When compared to other lighting types, LED lights are usually a lot smaller in size.

Simple mounting technology is one of the notable features of LED lights. Generally LED lights possess a few inches diameter with an easy mounting facility. Today, it is a common lighting type used in some greenhouses. In case of hanging type LED lights, it is advised to use a stronger greenhouse structure to hold the light. The fact that LED lights are light weight is another common advantage of using them. It is easy to handle and can be configured even by the layman. Incandescent bulb prices start at £1-£2 per bulb, and is one of the least expensive grow lights available on the market. Studies say that general incandescent bulbs possess a lifespan of less than 1000 hours.

Fluorescent bulbs have a lifespan of less than 20,000 hours; and are a common choice of lights by homeowners. They're very straightforward to install as indoor lights. Apart from easy installation, fluorescent bulbs are reasonably energy efficient. So in that respect, it can effectively save both time and money. Studies have shown that installing fluorescent grow lights is a key factor which encourages the growth of plant seeds. Similar to fluorescent lamps, new full spectrum fluorescent lamp comes under the category of red spectrum. As per studies, red spectrum from grow lights usually encourages blooming of flowers. Generally, various plants require versatile amount of light to grow.

For example, consider the case of plants like lettuce and herbs. These plants require less amount of light than peppers and tomatoes. How to grow plants by using artificial lighting? This is a common question heard from the face of new comers in the plant cultivation field. Installing HID bulb is one of the best solutions for this. This indoor lighting type is a perfect choice for all planters who wish to enhance the growth of plants. While using HID bulbs, it is recommended to follow one rule. It is always advised to get HPS bulbs with HPS lights and MH bulbs with MH lights. If you wish to get a clear balanced spectrum, it is advised to use enhanced spectrum bulbs. Here, HPS bulbs produce more blue light and MH bulbs produce more orange light to stimulate the growth of plants. If not handled with care, HID bulb can explode, so handle with care. This condition usually happens in colder climates. It can also happen when the fingers are moist or oily. Hence it is recommended to pick up a bulb from the base
