Gardening Under Lights, By Leslie F. Halleck

Growing-Under-Lights-Cover[1]

Want to grow your own food & flowers indoors? Gardening Under Lights demystifies the science and art of indoor growing.

We are excited to announce the release of Gardening Under Lights, by Leslie F. Halleck. (Published by Timber Press and ready to ship in July 2018).  We can’t wait to get our hands on a copy this summer!

Tired of killing your succulents and orchids? Wish you could grow your own tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, and even citrus indoors year-round? Keeping indoor plants and growing food indoors are expanding trends these days, especially with younger consumers. Apartment living, short growing seasons, a desire for fresh hyper-local produce, and a serious addiction to plant collecting, are just a few reasons many plant enthusiasts attempt indoor gardening. However, home gardeners of all levels often fail repeatedly with growing food plants indoors, as well as with popular house plants such as succulents, because they don’t have enough light – or the right kind of light.

Indoor grow lighting is a complicated and often-misunderstood topic. From seedlings, to garden starts, to permanent indoor crops and plant collections, horticulturist Leslie F. Halleck demystifies the art and science of indoor plant lighting and growing in her book Gardening Under Lights.

This Book

is a highly-detailed, accessible guide for seed starters, plant collectors, and anyone who wants to successfully garden indoors. “If you want to grow tomatoes and maintain citrus trees indoors in winter – or keep your indoor succulents from constantly dying on you -” says Halleck, “you must provide adequate supplemental grow lighting.” Choosing the right kind of grow lights for your plant type and indoor space, and creating the right type of growing environment, can be an overwhelming task for beginners.

Gardening Under Lights

details everything a gardener or hobbyist needs to know to garden indoors. Part One starts with the basics of photosynthesis, the science of light, and how to accurately measure how much light a plant needs. Part Two provides an overview of the most up-to-date tools and gear available. Parts Three and Four offer tips and techniques for growing popular ornamental plants (orchids, succulents, bonsai, and more) and edible plants (salad greens, cannabis, herbs, tomatoes, peppers, citrus, and many more) independent of the constraints of volatile outdoor conditions. (Get yours HERE.)

Who will benefit from Gardening Under Lights? Gardeners and growers who want to expand their growing space and extend their growing seasons, city dwellers & balcony gardeners who have no yard space, fresh food enthusiasts who want clean ingredients at their fingertips, and specialty plant collectors who need to feed their plant addiction year-round.

Beautiful Grow Light

Such a beautiful grow light! I’ve had it (the Large 40w version) for close to 1 year and have noticed a huge difference in the health of many of my houseplants. Shipping was fast, installation was easy breezy and I love the outlet timer functionality. Highly recommend.

Excellent

Wonderful track light. The warm color temperature and compact minimal design makes these track lights easy to live with. Appreciate how you can mix various beam angles on a single track to throw the right amount of light in the right place. I wish they were dimmable like the vita bulbs, would love to see that in future.

Already making a huge difference

I wanted to place a Ficus Lyrata in a specific location in my home but it didn’t get enough light and was struggling majorly. I’ve had this light for a week and “Frida” the fiddle leaf fig is already sooo much happier!
