Care for pencil plant/fire cactus plant
Hello, I have an indoor pencil plant about 4ft tall that my sister brought me from Florida. It does not get much light. Would you suggest getting a plant light? Thank you.

If you cannot provide enough light for the plant, extra light from a lamps will help. You do not need to invest in a "grow" light. A simple florescent bulb will do just fine. Whether you choose the grow light or florescent light, you will need to make sure that the bulb is placed only a few inches from the plant. Otherwise, the light will not reach the plant well enough to help it.
