The Importance of Light
With the correct lighting, you can grow almost any plant indoors. The most important thing to know is the level of light that a particular plant needs for successful growth. For example, houseplants and ferns do not need as much light as salad greens and culinary herbs. Tomatoes, orchids and flowering plants require the highest intensity light of all. The most common mistake made by indoors growers is to provide inadequate light, usually because they try to cover too large an area with the light available. It is important to remember that a smaller area with adequate light will give better results than a larger one without.
