By 2022, the global LED lamp market size will reach 1.9 billion US dollars, with a compound annual growth rate of more than 30%.
LED grow light technology has been improving rapidly, especially in the past 1-2 years. While almost any LED grow light (even the worst) can grow excellent weed, some new models developed specifically for cannabis achieve better yield, density and plant growth rates than older and general-purpose models.
How to use LED grow lights to get better results?
Among the many grow lights, LED grow lights are the most widely used grow lights in recent years. Because compared with other traditional grow lights, LED grow lights have more obvious advantages, such as: less heat, small space, low power consumption, etc. And there is clear data that LED plant lights can greatly increase the yield of crops. More and more relevant people choose to use LED plant lights to fill light, so how to use LED plant lights to achieve ideal results?
Pay attention to the selection of LED growlights
In order to achieve a better use effect, you must first choose LED plant lights according to the growth stage of the crop. Different crops have different requirements for light and light intensity, and different growth stages of crops have different requirements for light and light intensity, so pay attention to the spectrum and power of LED grow lights when choosing. For crops that need coloring and flowering and fruiting, red and blue LED grow lights can be selected. For leafy vegetables, you can use full spectrum LED grow lights. For plants that like light, high-power LED grow lights should be selected.
Choose the reasonable distance
When the plant light works, it will generate a certain amount of heat. If the lamp is too close to the plant, it will burn the plant and cause certain damage to the plant. However, if the distance between the grow light and the plant is too far, the utilization rate of light will be greatly reduced, which will affect the fill light effect of the grow light.
Pay attention to the fill time
If the weather is fine that day, you can fill the plant with light for 2-3 hours in the morning when it is weak. If it is cloudy, selective or hazy, you can increase plant growth throughout the day and ensure normal plant growth later in the day. There is also a time limit for plant fill light. 14 hours of light a day is ideal for plants, as they also need to rest and breathe at night.
The tips for buying Led grow light
First, the type of plants produced must be identified. Before buying LED equipment, learn where to take them and learn about the factory area. Learn about the factory areas you know about.
Pay attention to the PAR/PPE.
The efficacy of a plant light, also known as photosynthetic photon efficacy or PPE, is the wattage of PAR (photosynthetically active radiation) photons output. The efficacy of grow lights has quickly become one of the main indicators buyers evaluate products.
PPE is flooded, but the less energy of plant lights, this red light is a different indicator. For example, PPE only considers photon fingers in the PAR spectrum (excluding distant wavelengths).
When choosing a grow light, pay attention to the spectral range of LED grow lights. During photosynthesis, plants usually absorb red and blue light the most. When we choose led plant lights, we choose the reddest or bluest led plant lights, as well as plant lights with red and blue ratios. Different growth stages require different red and blue light ratios. But when choosing, we should understand the wavelength range of led grow lights. Red light around 660nm and blue light around 450-470nm affect your plants the most.
Heat output of led grow light
LED grow lights will generate heat when working, and they may overheat, especially when the grow lights need to work for at least 15 hours a day to provide enough light to the plants. At this time, pay attention to the problem of overheating. As mentioned, overheating can be harmful to your plants and both LED grow lights and plants. So your LED grow light should be equipped with an efficient cooling system.
Generally speaking, the heat in LED grow lights is generated at the back, so there should be a heat sink in this area. It takes the heat away so it won’t overheat the LED grow lights or plants.
Commercial LED grow lights are installed right above the plant canopy, and the distance between the canopy and the plants is adjusted according to the growth stage of the plants. At this time, you need to ensure that the grow lights can be easily installed and replaced.
In a greenhouse, most commercial LED grow lights are mounted on posts that pass through the top of the facility. In indoor grow rooms, hangers, pulleys are often used to attach posts or vertical plant stands.
Generally speaking, you should ask the manufacturer for the installation method and process in time before purchasing a plant growth light, so as to avoid mistakes during installation. A professional manufacturer must also have a well thought-out system that is easy to install, replace and expand.
Choose the Right Light–full spectrum or red and blue light?
Grow lights can replace sunlight to supplement the light needed for plant growth, thereby promoting plant growth. This is the principle of fill light for plant lights. They can be used when growing vegetables, fruits and flowers. It can not only promote the growth of seedlings, but also promote flowering and fruiting, and increase yield in advance. There are many types of grow lights, and the spectrum includes full spectrum and red and blue light spectrum. Is the full spectrum better or the red and blue spectrum better?
In the research on the absorption and utilization of sunlight by plant growth, it was found that the absorption and utilization of red and blue light in sunlight by plants is the largest. Red light can promote plant flowering and fruiting, and blue light can promote plant growth, stems and leaves. Therefore, in the later research on plant lights, people developed plant lights that combine red and blue spectra. This kind of lamp has the best effect of supplementing light for plant growth, and has better effect on crops and flowers that need to guarantee the color. And red and blue light can be matched as needed to obtain the most suitable spectrum for plant growth.
Red and plant lights only have red and blue spectrums, while full-spectrum plant lights simulate the same spectrum as sunlight and emit white light. Both have the effect of supplementing light and promoting plant growth, but when choosing different wavelengths, you should pay attention to choosing the most suitable one.
For the best judgment of results and reservations that require coloring, use red and blue plant lights, which can be used to promote flowering and increase yield. For multi-leaf judgment, you can use full-spectrum plant lights. Because the spectrum of the red and blue plant lights is pink, the whole plant light will be dizzy and nauseating after staying in the human environment for a long time, and there is no such light.
