Can light bulbs help plants to grow?


Yes, certain types of light bulbs can be used to assist with plant growth.

Can you please provide more information on how this works?

Light bulbs that emit a full spectrum of light, such as LEDs or fluorescent lights, can simulate natural sunlight and provide the necessary wavelengths needed by plants during their life cycle. These artificial light sources should be placed close enough to the plants but not too hot so they won't damage them. It is essential to maintain proper lighting duration - many plants require exposure to 12-16 hours of light daily.
