You’ll need to know that the whiteness of a grow light is measured in Kelvin units (K). The best grow lights should have a rating of 4,000 to 6,000K if you’re planning to use a grow light more than natural light. This rating of 4,000 to 6,000K is considered a full spectrum light and will help your indoor garden grow plentiful and healthy vegetables or fruits.
Track Humidity Levels
It’s hard to match the humidity levels that your indoor garden needs without some form of a measurement tool. There are many monitors online that you can purchase to keep the humidity of your indoor garden at an appropriate level.
You can keep a tray of water near your plants to encourage more humidity or mist your indoor garden as often as necessary to give them ample humidity for maximum growth.
