Hi Linda –

One of the best grow lights for small indoor growing is a T5 fluorescent system. They’re wonderful for growing greens, aren’t as expensive as high intensity discharge lamps used by serious growers, and they use less electricity. They’re perfect for dark rooms and foliage plants. Key advantages of these high-end fluorescents include: more of their light is used by the plant, they produce less heat than incandescent and HID grow lights and consequently can be placed much closer to the plant.

Hope it helps!
