Winter Gardening Indoors | Grow Lights and Green Houses
Fall is here and winter will be here before you know it! When most people think about the fall and winter season they don’t necessarily consider growing their gardens. However, there is a myriad of fresh fruits, vegetables, and leafy foliage you can germinate in the winter to produce a full and thick crop in the spring and the summer! You can ensure perfect plant health, even during the fall and winter when you employ the use of grow lights and indoor greenhouses!
Which Seeds Should Be Planted in the Fall / Winter
Winter is typically not the time to grow plants due to the cold temperatures and killing frost. However, your garden doesn’t have to suffer when the winter season inevitably rolls around. With a little planning, you can have a fruitful garden, regardless of the season. In fact, some vegetables will become sweeter and more delicious when they go through the frost season!

Why Use Grow Lights
Grow lights are very useful, especially in the fall and winter seasons. Grow lights can be used to mature vegetables, herbs, flowers, and other plants from seedlings better than the natural sun can. These powerful indoor lights provide ample lighting for photosynthesis which ensures the health of any plant. Using grow lights is an easy and excellent way to provide supplemental light and support plants where adequate natural sunlight is lacking.

What Grow Lights are Good For Herbs
There are many different types of grow lights on the market and they all have different levels of efficiency. LED grow lights are not only energy resourceful and offer an ideal light spectrum range for all types of herbs. Generally, most herbs need at least six hours of sunlight a day. If you’re using artificial LED or HID lights you should consider giving your plants a full 14-16 hours of full and direct grow lights.
How Often Should Grow Lights Be Changed
LED grow lights tend to last very long, however, they should be changed every 12-18 months to ensure the best performance. These lights need to be replaced often as the powerful T5 fluorescents hold their power for up to a year! Running the lights 18-24 hours a day decreases the power of the lights and suggested time between the replacements.
Will Grow Lights Kill Mold
Not all grow lights can kill mold and bacteria. To effectively kill mold and bacteria you should use a strong UV lamp in addition to your normal grow lamps. Your ultraviolet light in the range of 280 to 100 nm can help kill mold and prevent its growth properly designed, ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) cleaners that use ultraviolet radiation from UV lamps may destroy indoor biological pollutants such as viruses, bacteria, and some molds that are growing on the moist interiors of HVAC surfaces. Also, ultraviolet germicidal lamps can destroy bacteria, molds, yeast, and viruses.
