Unless your garden sits in direct sunlight for a few hours every day, you’ll need to install supplemental lighting above the grow area.
We recommend that you invest in a growlight dedicated to your Windowfarm.
See the growlight available in the The Windowfarms Store.
Our LED growlight provides supplement light and is designed to work in combination with daylight. It has a combination of red and blue spectrum light that your plants need in order to thrive.
Position the growlight approximately 3-4 inches from your plants. If there is heat coming from the growlight, move the growlight so that your plants do not feel any heat. It’s another balancing act: as your plants grow taller, keep repositioning the growlight to keep the light as close as possible without the plants feeling any heat.
The more hours of light that your plants receive, the more they will thrive. Ten (10) hours is the minimum amount of light your plants need. Young baby plants are happy with even more – up to18 hours of light!
