What makes LED lights more effective than traditional grow lights for indoor growing?
1. EFFICIENCY – LED growlights can achieve the same results as traditional HID grow lighting while using around a quarter of the power. This has numerous advantages, the main one being a much smaller power bill at the end of the month!
2. HEAT (the lack of); Because LEDs produce very little heat, this means there’s less requirement to cool the grow area. Additionally LED grow lights can be placed much closer to the plants than HPS/MH bulbs without ‘plant burn’ taking place.
What’s the main difference between the UFO, Penetrator & Switchable Series?
While all our LED lights will do very much the same thing. There are some distinct advantages and differences between the various ranges.
UFO – Most common led grow light on the market. Into it’s fourth generation of models. 9 band spectrum. 3watt leds.
COBRA – Latest commercial led grow technology using 192w COB leds. New fan technology, reducing noise even further. 9 band spectrum.
SWITCHUP – Utilizing reflector technology to concentrate the light. Can switch between grow & bloom spectrum modes (or both) with the flick of a switch. 9 band spectrum, 5watt LEDs.
E27 – LED grow bulbs which can be used in standard light socket fitting (e27 screw mount). Using 3watt LEDs and 2 spectrums.
What is the ideal spectrum for growing lush plants?
For plants in the growth or ‘vegetation’ stage; blue (440-460nm) spectrums is considered the ideal spectrum. Plant still respond well to the red spectrum during this period. For plants in the bloom / flowering / ‘budding’ stage; red (630-660nm) is considered the ideal spectrum. Plants also respond well to additional colors being added, as we try to replicate the sun which has a nearly infinite number of light spectrums.
How high above the plants should I have the light?
It is recommend to have your led grow lights no lower than 30cm from your plants. Depending on your grow area, you should generally place lights at a height that is half the width of the grow area (eg, for a 1metre wide grow space, place lights 50cm above plant canopy)
