Plants need light for photosynthesis, and to thrive and be healthy over time. You might think placing a plant near a lamp is just as good as placing it near a sunny window, but the reality is sunlight has red and blue spectra light, which is what plants need most to grow. Traditional lightbulbs lack the spectra light plants need, and while “full spectrum” lights are available in lightbulb form, they are expensive and use energy to work. Why buy special bulbs? Use free sunlight instead.
