Question:
I will be living and working on a boat, living in a room with no windows. I can take the plants outside once a week, but not too much. I am looking for cretin lights I need. I am really unsure of what they are. I need names of the size or what ever it is I need to know. I am taking with me Orchids. Is it even possible to grow plants in doors without direct sunlight? Please if you can be of any help let me know.


Replies:
Yes, it is possible to grow plants indoors. Re. lighting see:
