What are the best grow light?
The best grow lights device can provide high PPF light output (measure at a speed of µmol/s), run at high efficiency (measured at µmol/J), and use high -quality chips and drivers supported by warranty. Find a light -certified light to ensure the safe use of the product. If the product has listed DLC, it means that it has been independent testing and verification to meet the efficient requirements required for the rebate of local public institutions.
What type of LED grow light is good for growing plants?
The best LED growth light for growing plants is a plant with high PPF output (at least 2000 µmol/s) and high efficacy (at least 2.6 µmol/j), which means that it will produce sufficient light to support any crops and effectively use effectively electricity. The best light will also produce a full spectrum, so as to better copy the natural sunlight, and it has shown healthier plant growth.
Can you grow plants with regular LED lights?
Not all Led growing fixtures are suitable for growth lights. First of all, it is important to understand how the spectrum affects the growth of plants. The PAR range is a spectral part that can be absorbed and used in photosynthesis. Plants only use light produced in the range of 400nm-700nm, and good growth lights can imitate the sun by generating bright white full spectral light. In addition, LEDs must produce sufficient light to support the plant type you grow. The amount of light required for different types of plants is different, but for example, marijuana requires at least 500 µmol/m2/s nutritional stage, flowering> 900 µmol/m2/s
How many plants can a 1000W LED light grow?
Wats only indicates how much electricity is needed for the operation of the light. The output measured by optical photon flux (PPF) is more important. According to the quality and efficiency of the LED chip, the two lights using the number of Watt can have very different light output. Big light output means that the growing light will support more plants.
How big of an LED grow light do I need?
The size of the grow light you need depends on what you’re growing and the size of the plant canopy. For the flowering stage, most growers target a PPFD of 1000 µmol/s/m2. To achieve this light density, use at least one of our G1 Grow Lights or two of our G3-D2 Grow Lights per 5’x5’ area. For plants in the vegetative stage, most growers target a PPFD of 500 µmol/s/m2. This would require one of our FL-1 grow lights per 6’x6’ area or one of our VL-1 grow lights per 4’x4’ area.
How many led grow lights will I need?
The project qty will depend on the size of the canopy and the optical photon flux density (PPFD) you want to achieve, which depends on your growing. For flowering, most marijuana growers are targeted at PPFD with 1000 µmol/S/M2. You can use a Led panel grow growth light G1 or led foldable grow light G3 growth lights every 5’x5 ‘area. For the nutritional stage, the target PPFD is 500 µmol/s/m2, and every 6’x6 ‘area requires one of our G1 lights or a G3-D2 lamp in every 4’x4’ area. If you are running a full -cycle growth, follow the suggestions of flowering, and then output the lights at dark nutritional stages. See the G1 specification table and the PPFD map on the G3-D2 specification table to see the light density of the different size areas you choose to cover.
Why is full spectrum white light better than red and blue light?
The full spectrum white light is most suitable for plant growth because it imitate the solar spectrum used by plants. Plants can only absorb and use certain spectrals, as well as different wavelength (color) light to trigger different reactions in plants. For example, red light can effectively increase the total size of the plant, but it can cause “stretching” plants when used alone. These plants are high and leaf high. Green lights have proven to create a healthier plant structure to increase yield. This is why not only has the importance of red and blue light, but also importantly, the full spectrum of plant absorption, to maximize the production and quality of crops.
How far should LED grow lamp be from plants?
When considering how to hang the growing light, understand that the LED fixed device can be placed on the plants at 6 inches above the plant tree. This is because one of the main advantages of LED growth lights is that their energy efficiency is much higher, and compared with high -pressure sodium (HPS) or ceramic metal halide (CMH) growth lights, it produces much less calories. Avoid more than 12 -inch LED growth lights above the canopy; as the height of the growth light increases, the light produces will be distributed on a larger area to reduce the density of light. Similarly, some light will be absorbed by the air between light and plants.
Why should I switch from HPS to LED grow lights?
The LED growth light saves you money, because its operating costs are much lower than that of HPS or CMH lights. The electricity they use is much less and the calories generated are much less, which means that less money is costing less money and cooling costs. In addition, LED lasted 50,000 hours (for nearly 10 years), compared with the light bulb in the HPS fixed device that needs to be replaced each year. The most important thing is that our LED lights have higher light density than most HPS lights, which can cause higher output and profits for each harvest. Finally, states such as California are aware of how HPS planting facilities make the grid tight. In the next few years, all large indoor growth facilities may be needed to switch to LED growing light fixtures.
Can I use led Grow lamp in my greenhouse?
Yes. Although Volt growth products are designed for complete indoor marijuana growth, they can be used as supplementary lighting in greenhouses. Their built-in 0-10V lighting control measures are very suitable for meeting different light outputs required by different plants. Specifically, VL-1 is most suitable for non-avenue growth that does not require top light output or only requires lighting. VL-1 can also be suspended vertically to provide the side lighting of the adjustable tilt lamp panel.
Can Grow LED lights be dimmed?
Yes, both our led grow lights have built-in 0-10V lighting control knobs, which darkens with 20 % increment. It can also be connected to the external lighting control module. This means that you can easily pass the light and turn back according to the nutritional or flowering state.
What is the life expectancy of Grow lights?
The lifespan will last more than 50,000 hours, more than five and a half years of light of 24/7. This means that they can grow for 10 years, running for about 12 hours a day. We also provide 5 years of warranty for Volt Grow products.
