Growing Vegetables Indoors
I’ve been looking to create an indoor vegetable garden this year since I gave up growing a more illegal plant. So I’ve only grown cannabis indoors, and for that you need a vegetation bulb (metal halide) and a flower bulb (high pressure sodium) based on the different light spectrum’s. My problem is that all the literature I’ve found on regular vegetables indoors say both sides, yes I do need to switch and no I don’t. Which is it? What’s the best indoor grow light for vegetables? Makes sense that i would need to switch to mimic the shorter days and such. I figure it varies from plant to plant but can anyone enlighten me on this?
Here is what I want to grow inside:
-leafy greens (lettuce, mustard, kale, arugula)
– some dwarf cherry tomatoes
-maybe peas, i’m not sure if i want to deal with that big of a plant indoors
-peppers (heard these were hard to grow/get a good yield off of so i’m not sure yet)
-Berries (blueberries, strawberries, maybe a raspberry)
Thanks for your time,
