Measure light intensity to optimize the growth and health of plants

By knowing light intensity you can provide your plants with ideal growing conditions

Along with water light is the most important element to growing healthy plants. No plant will live for long without light. Plants absorb light energy and turn it into energy through photosynthesis. When it comes to growing plants indoors, gardeners are typically fighting for enough light or more consistent light. It's important to know that natural sunlight coming through a window is not as strong as sunlight outside, and the intensity of the light drops rapidly the further the plant is moved from the window. A simple move of two or three feet away from a window can reduce the light intensity by more than 50 percent. When you buy a plant you’ll find an indication of light intensity it needs. This can vary a lot. It is easy to measure the light intensity several times a day to know if your plant needs more or less light.

You can measure the light intensity with the following products.
