When we first moved into our condo in Chicago, we loved everything about it — everything except the natural light. We were actually lucky to have good-sized windows that, in theory at least, would flood the living room with bright sunlight. But living in a city combined with the shorter daylight hours in Chicago's winter meant fewer hours of sunlight for us — and our indoor plants.
So what to do when natural light doesn't abound, but you still want the benefits of indoor plants — be they edible, decorative, or functional? Enter grow lights.
