Generally, sunlight is best for plant growth, since artificial lights cannot replicate the specific colors of light (wavelengths) that are optimal for plants. However, artificial lights can work well to supplement sunlight, especially during winter or where sufficient sunlight is unavailable.
Moreover, do plants like SAD lamps?
Good news! There’s an easy and inexpensive way to replicate natural sunlight indoors—full spectrum lighting. Used for years to treat Seasonal Affective Disorder, (SAD) full spectrum lights simulate the sun at noon, and plants love it.
Keeping this in consideration, can room light replace sunlight for plants?
Sunlight is the perfect balance of wavelengths necessary for plant growth and blooming, but you can also use artificial light to help your plants along. In fact, low-light foliage plants (such as pothos and peace lily) can grow quite nicely in windowless offices with enough artificial light.
Do grow lights provide vitamin D?
There are many full spectrum light bulbs on the market that claim to help improve mood. Some even claim to promote vitamin D production; however, unless bulbs are emitting UVB rays, they do not increase vitamin D production.
Results. Light therapy probably won’t cure seasonal affective disorder, nonseasonal depression or other conditions. But it may ease symptoms, increase your energy levels, and help you feel better about yourself and life.
General speaking, indoor succulents do not need grow light. If your window is full of sunlight all day then your succulents can survive well even in winter without grow light. However, during winter time, succulent often do not get sufficient sunlight and hence, etiolation and fading color are common issues.
