GE Lighting just released a new line of grow lights that are as functional as they are eye-catching, making them a great option for those with green thumbs. This clever invention is designed to make your indoor gardening endeavors-think houseplants, herbs, fruits, vegetables and flowers-thrive sans a lick of natural light or outdoor space. As a result, even those living in the darkest and darkest corners of their homes will now be able to successfully grow their own plants. The best part about this product is that it blends in seamlessly with the rest of your décor and works with the existing lights you already own. The installation of indoor grow lights opens up a whole new world of possibilities when it comes to planting plants indoors, which plants you can successfully grow, and how your plants will look a year or two from now on, according to Adam Besheer, co-founder of Greenery Unlimited. "If you live in an apartment with poor light conditions, you will only be able to grow a very limited number of plants inside unless you install a grow light."
GE's Grow Lights mimic the natural light temperatures of natural environments by using a prescribed LED light spectrum with high Photosynthetic Photon Flux (PPF) - the same cutting-edge technology that's used by commercial farms to cultivate plants - in order to help your plants grow at their best even inside. It is important to keep in mind that when used correctly (with the right level of PPF), these grow lights can make your indoor plants grow even faster than they would outdoors if they were exposed to sunlight. This is one of the most popular product lines at retailers across the country, with a variety of wattages and spectrums designed specifically to help cultivate anything from houseplants (BR-30) to flowering plants (PAR-38). As such, if you have the right grow light, you can successfully raise a veggie garden in your basement in less time than it would take you to grow a garden in your backyard if you don't have the right grow light. Is there still a doubt in your mind? Here are a handful of reasons why you might want to consider these unique grow lights for your own home.

They stylishly simulate natural light.
Unlike some grow light solutions that emit shades of blue, red, or purple, these grow lights are engineered to produce a white light that looks natural to the human eye. As a result, you can grow your indoor garden in plain sight, without any flashy-and unattractive-colorful light bulbs in the background obscuring your view.
They're easy to install.
GE Grow Light bulbs can be screwed directly into any standard light fixture, and you've got yourself a natural-quality indoor light in seconds-no special hardware or additional purchases are required. The GE Grow Light lamp fits just about any standard light fixture.
