Attractive indoor grow lights plants, especially those that require low light levels, can be difficult to obtain. The high light intensity of indoor grow lights, usually over 100,000 lux, makes them unsuitable for growing low light plants. Some grow lights are suitable for low light plants, but these are generally too expensive. Many indoor grow lights are unsuitable for growing low light plants because they emit light in a large cone of light. The light emitted from these large cone lights will not reach the soil and will not penetrate the plant's foliage. Another problem with large cone lights is that they provide a very small amount of light to the plant at any given time. The small amount of light emitted from large cone lights is insufficient to sustain plant growth.

In the prior art, the light sources for indoor grow lights were incandescent or fluorescent lights. While these light sources are effective for indoor grow lights, they have some drawbacks. The first drawback is that the incandescent and fluorescent lights create heat. The heat that is generated by these light sources can damage the plant and the grow light. Another drawback is that the incandescent and fluorescent lights consume a lot of energy. The energy consumed by these lights is expensive.

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are a type of solid state lighting that are often used for indoor grow lights. LEDs are much more efficient than incandescent and fluorescent lights. LEDs do not generate heat. However, LEDs generate light in a cone of light. The light emitted from LEDs does not have a uniform intensity distribution. The light intensity emitted from LEDs is very low, often less than 500 lux. A plant needs about 100,000 lux of light to sustain growth. The light intensity emitted from LEDs is not sufficient to grow low light plants.

LEDs have been used for grow lights in the prior art. U.S. Pat. No. 6,946,301 (Biswas et al.) discloses a grow light that uses LEDs to illuminate a plurality of grow pots. The grow light disclosed in the '301 patent includes a first circuit board, a second circuit board, a light fixture, and a light shield. The first circuit board is located adjacent to the second circuit board and is adapted to hold a plurality of LEDs. The light fixture is attached to the first circuit board. The light fixture includes a mounting base, a light shield, and a reflector. The reflector is attached to the mounting base. The light shield is attached to the mounting base and is adapted to guide light emitted by the LEDs to the grow pots. The light shield is attached to the mounting base to define a space between the light shield and the reflector. The reflector is attached to the mounting base to define a space between the reflector and the light shield. The reflector is made of a transparent material. The light shield is made of a reflective material. The light shield is spaced apart from the reflector. The light shield has a first end and a second end. The first end is attached to the mounting base. The light shield has a first surface and a second surface. The first surface is attached to the first end of the light shield. The second surface is attached to the reflector. The reflector has a first end and a second end. The first end is attached to the mounting base. The reflector has a first surface and a second surface. The first surface is attached to the second end of the reflector. The second surface is attached to the light shield. The first end of the reflector faces the second end of the light shield.

The light shield is located within the space between the reflector and the light shield. The light shield and the reflector are located within the space between the mounting base and the second circuit board. The first circuit board is attached to the mounting base. The second circuit board is attached to the second circuit board. The light shield is attached to the mounting base to reflect light emitted by the LEDs to the reflector. The reflector is attached to the mounting base to reflect light emitted by the LEDs to the light shield. Light emitted by the LEDs is reflected by the light shield and the reflector to the grow pots.

U.S. Pat. No. 7,201,835 (McCormick et al.) discloses an LED grow light. The grow light includes a light fixture and a light shield. The light fixture includes a
