Use CFL Grow Lamps in Home Light Fixtures

July 21, 2018

You can use a CFL in household lamp fixtures and as grow spotlights for small indoor houseplants or cuttings. Just as with T5 fluorescents, you will have to place the CFL fairly close to your plant so you don’t lose light volume. Because of their moderate heat output, this is relatively safe.

Fitting into household fixtures also makes these lamps easy to hang horizontally or vertically if you need to get more light at lower levels between large plants.
