Desk lamp grow?

Will a regular desk lamp with an led bulb provide enough light to grow a plant by?

Marijuana is easy to grow…it’s a weed, after all, right?
Put some bag seeds in dirt, some sprout, they grow, you harvest, dry, and smoke.
In your mind, you see buds like a “High Times” centerfold.

But in reality, you get stems dying… tall, leggy plants… thin, airy buds.

Growing pot is easy, growing quality cannabis takes a commitment. Lots of direct sun. Read everything, then re-read it cause the first time you read it, you’ll realize it has a language specific for growing. The plant responds with care, nutrients, an investment of time and money.

Or not, cause growing pot is easy.


Sooooo you didnt answer my question. Im aware that growing a plant isnt terribly hard, and that in order to grow something good you need to put in the effort. I just want to know if I can grow a single plant with a basic lamp and LED light bulb.

A direct answer to your question might be a very very small plant, as I suspect such a light has very little wattage and therefore very little lumens or PAR.

You need pretty much about 50 watts (actual watts, not equivalent watts) of light per square foot, most desk lamps don’t come anywhere near this amount.


A small plant, house plant size…yes

oops, put your trust in MacGyverStoner

@kabongster, maybe, but we don’t even know much about the light yet. I might say a very very small house plant size.


Thank you both

Try your light, watch your plant grow, see what works for you and it

The plant does need alotta light to mature to its full potential, but you should still have fun growing, and learning more, as you both progress.

This set up cost about 30 I bought some cheap clip on lamps and cfl bulbs to start…I have a large cardboard box that will be ready as soon as I get my fans and cut them in to siz
