If you own only one book on indoor gardening with lights, this is it. The fourth Edition of Gardening Indoors: The Indoor Gardener's Bible, sets the standard for indoor gardening with lights worldwide. This book has helped hundreds of thousands of indoor gardeners enjoy exotic flowers and vegetable grown indoors.

This "how-to" book unlocks the door to the world of gardening indoors under florescent and high intensity discharge (HID) lamps. Fluorescent lamps help seedlings and low-light plants start earlier and grow stronger. HID lamps are a substitute for the sun!

Gardening Indoors combines the basics of gardening and electrical lighting into this single volume, a complete how-to guide on playing Mother Nature indoors. It's not complicated at all. This book is very user-friendly, easy to read, and packed with graphs, charts and illustrations. Hobby hydroponics is more and more popular, and very affordable. Don't let a winter spoil your gardening fun, take it inside! So, get Gardening Indoors and equip yourself with the information you'll need to save time, save money, and reap the maximum benefits a well-run indoor garden can offer. Gardeners love the completeness and simple, easy-to-understand text.
