Led's are better for plant growth in all stages for many reasons, but lets start with what the main problems are with traditional lighting. With a traditional HID / HPS type of lighting fixture your plants are only making use of approximately 10%-15% of the light output (the output is of extremely wide bandwidth), this is of course highly inefficient and undesirable. Add this to the fact that you are generally consuming 600w of energy (considerably more if you have an old ballast) and only using 60w-90w of that energy for your plants and it all starts to seem a bit insane. Led grow lights do not emit large amounts of heat which makes it easier to control your grow room environment in the hot summer.This will ensure healthier and higher yielding plants. As a general rule of thumb it is always easier to warm something than to control something and this includes your grow room! Due to the specifically designated bandwidth of the LED cobs this light uses, plants grow dense, short, and lush green.
With led's we can tailor the color and bandwidth of each led to ensure that all the chlorophyll absorption peaks are being targeted efficiently thus promoting healthier growth whilst using less energy and with zero waste. Secondary precision optic lens, focuses the light to a specific radius to allow deep penetration and full use of the light NO MORE WASTED ENERGY.. 2.100-150% more PAR output than traditional 3w leds for the same consumption. Fan mounted on each heat sink for greater redundancy and modularity, faster heat transfer and removal.Longer lifespan with lower degradation. Exact horticultural wavelengths guaranteed for vegetative, growing and blooming phase Phototropism is an important aspect that inspires plants to grow tall and slender or wide and short. The mixing of LEDs should be done wisely, taking information from spectrum curves. Why the red LED should outnumber blue LEDs is a question that may arise in the users mind.
The wavelength of the red LED is not very wide, so there should be more red LEDs than blue LEDs. The intensity of the lights has to be controlled for the plants to absorb the light. Many growers tend to make use of only one kind of LEDs. However, only one kind of LED may not be able to give the plants the full range of light spectrum that sunlight provides. To have a successful growth, it is important to create conditions which incorporate all the wavelengths of light.
Blue lights : LED lights that are blue in color contribute to growth in vegetation like shoots or leaves. However, it has to be toned otherwise it does not prove to be very helpful.Red lights : Red LED lights help in flowering. They also add to the growth of the fruits in a plant. Uncontrolled red lights produce stunted plants and may affect the growth of the fruits. White lights : White LED lights enhance the visibility. They help in visualization of the inside of the grow room. It is important to monitor the growth of the plants and it is only possible under the white light. Other colors might make it difficult to monitor the room. In such cases it might become difficult to identify any issues with the environment as well as the plants. With the help of the white light it becomes easier to observe even the smallest troubles with the plants. Ultraviolet light : Ultraviolet light is not very common but it can be an option for experimentation. It is important to mimic the outdoor conditions and create artificial conditions so that plants get the right mixture and wavelengths of the light. Hang Height & Lighting Time Suggestion 1. Seedling to day 7: 30 inches from the Plants 2. Day 7 to start of stretch: 24 inches from the Plants 3.
Vegetative stage of growth: 18 inches from the Plants 12 to 16 hours. Flowering stage of growth: 18 to 12 inches from the Plants 11-13 hours.
