A Grow Light for Houseplants That Will Change Your Life

January 2, 2019

Dark apartment getting you down? (Just a guess.)

Weak winter sunlight+ tropical houseplants = disaster. Or does it? You can change the equation—and your life—with a wall-mounted grow light plant shelf. We are currently admiring one that has “56 LEDs that are calibrated to deliver bright, full-spectrum light boosted with extra blue light to stimulate stronger root growth and enhance photosynthesis.”

If we’re intrigued by that description of Coltura’s LED Grow Frame, currently on offer at a deep discount from Gardener’s Supply, imagine how our houseplants feel about it.

A compact, \1\2-inch-deep Coltura LED Grow Frame (also shown in the top photos) has an adjustable light panel shelf and is on sale for \$\186.75, marked down from \$\249 at Gardener&#8\2\17;s Supply.

With an aluminum frame, wooden shelf, and LED light panel, the grow-light system can be mounted on a wall or will sit independently on a tabletop.

“You’re ready to grow herbs in the kitchen, orchids in your living room, or start seeds for the garden,” notes retailer Gardener’s Supply. “A diffuser eliminates glare and an ingenious magnet system lets you easily raise and lower the light panel.”
