8. Alter Light Schedules in Different Seasons
During the summer, sunny windows can become increasingly hot as the day’s light increases. Much like us when we’re in the sun too long, our plants can get sunburn, too!
On the other side of the seasonal spectrum, plant conditions shift amidst the winter months. Potential air leaks and shorter days mean your plant that was once too hot is now too cold in the same window. With a combination of less overall daylight, less light intensity, and cold temperatures, plants will often go into dormancy.
The new AeroGarden Grow Lights - the Stem, Tabletop, and Trio - help houseplants grow, even with no natural light present. In the winter, as days begin to shorten, use AeroGarden Grow Lights to extend the amount of time your plants receive light. Adjusting the distance between the light and your plant’s canopy, as well as the light’s intensity via the dim function, can help keep your plant happy and healthy.
