Gardening is considered a hobby that is limited to people who have yards in which to garden. People with limited space or extreme weather can grow plants in their home or basement with UV lights. All you need is some extra space, a few containers, and a UV light source.
Fill containers with potting soil. Plant seeds or seedlings into the containers. Avoid tamping the soil over the seeds or seedlings. Tightly-packed soil can hamper growth and development.
Arrange containers on a table, as close together as possible.
Anchor the chains to the ceiling above the table. Attach the UV light source to the chains, so that it is suspended above the containers. Adjust the light on the chains so that it hangs no more than 6 inches above the tops of the plants. Light placed too high above the containers causes weak, thin stems that will not develop properly.
Water the plants regularly, keeping the soil moist (not wet). Move the light up when the plants grow a couple of inches.
Leave light on for 14-16 hours per day. Turn them off at night, allowing to rest in darkness as they would in nature.
