Posted by Staff of goGardenNow on



We plant lovers can't resist growing them indoors, often providing artificial light. Lights on during the day; lights off at night. That can take a toll on our electric bill, though. The more lights we burn, the more it costs us.

I believe you'll find it to be very interesting.
