Home Depot sells grow lights now??
On a recent trip to the Home Depot to pick up a bulb for the kitchen I turned around to see a palette of LED grow lights. Guys, this is HUGE. As much as our anti-prohibition efforts have been grass roots, having big corporations get on board with indoor growing can really put some muscle in our corner!
Up on the display they had some red/blue ones hanging up but managed to snap a pic of the white/blue ones on the floor. Yes, I know they’re small and weak, but appear to be easy to mount horizontally or vertically and could be a gateway to more grow lights being offered!
I want to say they were in the $30-40 range for a double strip (19W). Obviously not enough to grow the dank, but a good option for something to put over clones, seedlings, or slide into an exist setup for a little supplemental lighting. Maybe even for new growers or those wanting a closet grow but don’t know where to start could line up 10 of these over some autoflowers and pull a few OZ of fluffy nugs, etc. without the heat that a dozen CFLs would put off in a small space (ask me how I know)
hmmmm…will pick some up next payday and let the DGC know what’s up.

Grow Lights Home Depot
Grow lights, which can be purchased from Home Depot or any another home improvement store such as Lowe’s. Grow lights work by simulating natural light and assuming traits similar to those that a plant outdoors would experience under ideal conditions.
By casting out the appropriate shades of light from the electromagnetic color spectrum, these electric lamps are designed to be used indoors and to advocate plant growth, fruiting and flowering. Various degrees of light and colors needed for the photosynthesis process will have emitted by different types of lighting.
The different types of Grow lights
Fluorescent Grow Lights
Fluorescent grow lights, which could be easily purchased at Home Depot, traditionally have been utilized to start seedlings or to provide illumination for low light plants. They can also be found at both hardware stores and garden centers and are easy to set up and use, they are inexpensive.
Since the lamps do not emit significant heat, the lamps can be situated just inches away from seedlings or plants without risk of scorching the plants, make it as the benefit of using fluorescent lighting.
If needed, it can allow for more concentrated lighting that is helpful for growing herbs, cacti and houseplants or for providing supplemental lighting in a greenhouse by considering newer types of fluorescent grow lights, such as full spectrum fluorescent light systems, which are more powerful than standard fluorescent bulbs.
Metal Halide Grow Lights
White lighting, that is the most similar to natural sunlight, is provided by Metal Halide grow lamps. Due to the fact that they distribute light evenly and the bulbs have a very long life expectancy, they are arguably the most popular type of grow lighting.
These type of grow lights are available from lots of different places or could also be purchased at Home Depot. Metal Halide lighting helps to stimulate the growth of leaves and vegetation, which makes them an excellent choice for houseplants and leafy vegetables such as lettuce, cabbage and spinach, because it has a strong focus on both the blue and violet spectrum.
High Pressure Sodium Lights
More commonly known as HPS lights, High-pressure sodium lights are energy efficient and create extremely bright light. Mostly red and orange is drawn from the color spectrum by this type of lighting, which means that they are best suited for promoting flowering and fruit growth.
HPS lighting helps stimulate fruit production in flowering vegetables such as tomatoes, eggplant and peppers; making it extremely popular in greenhouse settings. However, it is also ideal for gardeners, greenhouse growers and farmers who are in the flowering houseplant or cut flower industry.
HPS light must be used in conjunction with a ventilation system, while it can be an excellent choice for many types of plants, as a result of the main downside of their use that emit high levels of heat.
Even growth of the entire plant as a whole, another issue with HPS lighting is that it helps with flowering and fruit production but does not promote health. As a result, plants can sometimes grow with an uneven tone, take on a pale look or appear as if they posses symptoms of a nitrogen deficiency.
Look at buying grow lights from Home Depot, they can provide the perfect spectrum of light for growing healthy vegetables and plants.
