Grow lights are basically indoor lighting for plants that allow you to grow most seeds, succulents, herbs and houseplants during any time of year. This artificial light source is a compact way to stimulate plant growth, at all growth stages, by emitting blue light (which helps the plant grow) and red light (which helps with seed germination and blossom development).
