Natural light can be hard to come by in some homes. And extra space may not be all that abundant either. Grow lights are a great way to help your plants flourish if you’re lacking natural sunlight. But many lights are bulky, gaudy, or need to be suspended from a ceiling. Larger grow lights can be perfect for a spacious area. But when you’re growing an indoor garden on a desk, bookshelf, or on the edge of your kitchen counter, a large grow light dangling from your ceiling just won’t work. That’s where clip on grow lights come in!
Luckily, grow lights come in all shapes and sizes, big and small, suspendable and clippable. And, for an area where a large grow light isn’t practical, small, clip on grow lights can save the day. These lights can provide ample lighting for a large plant or for a few smaller ones. Also, manufacturers often equip them with an adjustable gooseneck and other handy features. So, you can pick something that’s just right for your specific indoor gardening needs.
