Light is vital to plants, yet each type of indoor plant, demand different amounts of it. Every home or space presents entirely different conditions so here are the facts on how much light and what type of light your plant needs to keep on thriving in your modern space.
Indoor plant lighting gives plants most of the energy they need to grow, thrive, even to stay alive. The proper type of light is more than just having some light hit your plants whenever it can. There are three lighting factors that control the growth and quality of a plant:
Amount of light: number of hours of daylight on your plants
The intensity of light: levels of light from the sun to the shade
Spectrum: warm and cool colors and where they come from
The best light for each and every plant is based on the color and type of the light its getting. Light is the energy that comes in varying wavelengths visible light is composed of different colors, each having a different wavelength and energy level. The colors we see with our own eyes are not as visible nor useful for plants, because they ‘see’ light differently than we do. Plants grow green because they reflect green light, so green is the last color they need to see. Instead, plants need light they can absorb and some of those colors are yellow, orange, red, blue and violet, as well as invisible light like the one the sun produces!
