So-called LED bulbs provide dim lighting for the exteriors of homes and businesses and can also be used to provide additional light for plants that need it.
The easiest way to provide supplemental light is to place an incandescent bulb around a plant.
It will not provide as much light as a "grow light", but works well for plants with low light requirements.
Fluorescent bulbs provide blue spectrum light, which helps keep plants short and bushy.
Flowering plants need additional light, which requires high-intensity discharge lamps or halogen lamps, which provide a light source very similar to the sun.
High pressure sodium lamps provide the red spectrum light that many flowering plants require to bloom.
Remember to handle high pressure sodium and high intensity lamps very carefully; they can explode if dropped.
