For indoor house plant owners, these Grow Lights help maintain proper light exposure to strengthen their plants. The settings include white, red, and combination lighting spectra that promote growth, contribute to chlorophyll synthesis, and enhance photosynthesis throughout different plant growth stages. The flexible goosenecks make it easy to better adjust the lighting around plants around your home and widen the amount of lighting as an alternative to the lack of natural sunlight.

It is the perfect tool for beginner house plant parents who want to tend to their plants during busy schedules and unfavorable weather conditions.

Customer Review: “I bought this because I have a lot of indoor plants and it's hard to keep them outside when it gets cold but I can say while keeping my plants in a corner of the room not near natural sunlight these lights have worked great. I bought two since I have a whole shelf of the plants and my plants have been flourishing. Definitely recommend the product.” - Jacqueline.
