If you want your plants to receive the closest thing to sunlight, you want to use High-Intensity Discharge (HID) Lights.  The most common of these is the metal halide lamps available from our site.  These lamps produce a full spectrum of light colors, so you can use them for any type of plant.  Even plants that would do better in tropical climates will grow under the direct light provided by a metal halide lamp.

Are HID Lights Expensive to Operate

The HID lights are some of the most expensive to operate, but they do offer your plants the widest range of visible light.  This is important for plants, especially those that go through different growing cycles.  Plants that are in the leafy stage need more red light, while plants that are flowering need more blue light.  These lights provide both colors of light, so your plants can thrive, no matter what their stage of growth.
