Question:
I just was wandering whether plants grow better in artificial light or in sunlight. I am almost sure that they will grow better in sunlight but i just wanted to know if it would at all grow in artificial light



Replies:
It depends upon the plant species. House plants do well with artificial light, while others require full sunlight.
