The TaoTronics Hydroponic TT-GL20 LED light bulb is ideal for anyone that enjoys growing plants indoors but do not have the sufficient day light to do so.
Whether you live in an apartment or want to winter grow in your basement then using grow lights will greatly improve the results of your crop. The beauty of LED grow lights is that they do not get hot and they do not use a lot of electricity. They also have a long lifespan (more than 50,000 hours), so you don’t have to replace them that frequently.
It is a very environmentally friendly way of ensuring that your plants get the proper amount of light. There are many options grow lights available for individual plants, but if you want to get the most bang for your buck then you should buy the TaoTronics TT-GL20 LED light bulbs.

The bulb is well made and can be screwed into a regular hanging light fixture. Amazon has some great options for light fixtures with a standard E27 socket that the hydroponic light bulb will fit into. It is recommended that you use a hanging light fixture such as the Woods Lamp with 6-foot cord to give your plants an even amount of light from above. If the space does not allow a hanging light fixture then another great solution is to use a Boston Harbor Desk Lamp.
Does not generate heat
The light does not generate heat, so you can place it very close to your lights. Even if you forget to raise the light as your plants grow, they will not get burnt by the LED light bulb. The light is extremely light and bright but because it is LED it hardly uses any electricity. Most users leave the light on for 8-10 hours a day without heating up the light or the surrounding area.
The TaoTronics hydroponic light will help your seeds to sprout a lot faster. A lot of gardeners use this light in a combination with the Hydrofarm Seedling Mat for maximum germination results.
The TaoTronics bulb is great for a single plant, but despite what it looks like in the picture, it will not be sufficient for several plants and does not cover more than a couple of s.f. if you place the light 1′ above the plant. It is a great product but it will not be able to provide enough light for a whole basement room full of herbs. Many users ending up buying more than a single light bulb after they realize how effective they are. If two square feet of light is not enough, then the TaoTronics UFO LED Grow Light TT-GL21 is a much better option for you.
Whether you are growing tomatoes, basil or arugula, the TaoTronics LED light will help boost the growth of your plants. The bulb is also ideal for plants that do not like the short days in the winter. The red and blue color spectrum from the bulb puts your plant in a pink hue that results in strong, vibrant dark green leaves and exponential growth. The pink light may look at bit funny at first, but it really does the trick to give your plants the light they need.
