T5 grow light bulbs is a special light with a specific spectrum wavelength designed to replace sunlight with light emitted by LED light-emitting elements, specifically to promote photosynthesis of plants and create a light environment suitable for growth and development of plants.
Everyone will grow some plants in their homes, which can be played in their spare time and beautify the environment. However, not everyone has the time and energy to take care of plants.
Friends often complain that the lighting in their room is particularly bad, and almost no plants survive. I express my deep sympathy for this small box. If you have a good impression of planting plants, you might as well try t5 grow light bulbs.
More and more people attach importance to energy-saving and environmentally friendly products, coupled with the government’s vigorous admiration. LED is known as the fourth generation of “light” era because of its energy saving, environmental protection, and long life. It is recognized and accepted by more and more people.
The market is developing very rapidly. What is a diode) is normal. After 10 years, I don’t know that LED means that I can’t keep up with the times. LEDs are widely used. It can be said that LEDs can be used as long as they need light. They can be roughly divided into LED home lighting, LED commercial lighting, LED advertising lighting, LED agricultural lighting…
Features of T5 Grow Light Bulbs
1.Different wavelengths of light have different effects on plant photosynthesis. The light required for plant photosynthesis has a wavelength of about 400-700nm. 400-500nm (blue) light and 610-720nm (red) contribute the most to photosynthesis.
2.Blue (470nm) and red (630nm) LEDs can just provide the light needed by plants, so the ideal choice is to use a combination of these two colors. In terms of visual effects, the red and blue plant lights are pink.
3.Blue light helps plant photosynthesis, which can promote green leaf growth, protein synthesis, and fruit formation; red light can promote plant rhizome growth, help flowering and fruiting and prolong flowering, and increase yield!
4.The ratio of red and blue LEDs of LED plant lights is generally between 4:1–9:1, usually 6-9:1.
5. When plant lights are used to supplement light for plants, the height from the leaves is generally about 0.5-1 meters, and continuous exposure for 12-16 hours a day can completely replace the sun.
5.The effect is very significant, and the growth rate is almost 3 times faster than that of ordinary plants that grow naturally.
6.Solve the problem of lack of sunlight in the greenhouse in winter, promote the chlorophyll, anthocyanin and carotene needed in the photosynthesis of plants, so that the fruits and vegetables are harvested 20% earlier, increasing the yield by 3 to 50%, and improving the sweetness of the fruits and vegetables. And reduce pests and diseases.
7.LED light source is also called semiconductor light source. This kind of light source has a relatively narrow wavelength and can emit light of a specific wavelength, so the color of the light can be controlled. Using it to irradiate plants alone can improve plant varieties.
8.The power of LED plant growth lights is low, but the efficiency is extremely high. Because other lights emit full spectrum, that is to say, there are 7 colors, but the plants need only red light and blue light, so most of the light energy of traditional lights is Wasted, so the efficiency is extremely low.
The LED plant growth lamp can emit specific red and blue light that plants need, so the efficiency is extremely high. This is why the power of a few watts of the LED plant growth lamp is better than the lamp with a power of tens of watts or even hundreds of watts.
Another reason is the lack of blue light in the spectrum of traditional sodium lamps, and the lack of red light in the spectrum of mercury lamps and energy-saving lamps. Therefore, the supplementary light effect of traditional lamps is much worse than that of LED lamps, and it saves more than 90% of energy compared with traditional lamps. The cost is greatly reduced.
LED agricultural lighting includes plants, animals, and algae. Now the most application is still on plants, covering the cultivation, growth, flowering, and fruiting stages of plants. As the available land becomes less polluted and less resources, it is becoming more common to grow vegetables and flowers indoors, and they can be planted out of season.
The development of science and technology has transformed modern high-tech agriculture from relying on the sky in the past, and this breakthrough is the successful application of LEDs in current agriculture.
Currently used in plants are mainly high-pressure sodium lamps and metal halide lamps, most of which are hundreds of watts or more than kilowatts. These light sources contain many unnecessary wavelengths, their biological light efficiency is very low, and the energy consumption is large, but they are absorbed by plants.
Only ten percent of them, and they emit harmful gases during use. LED has the outstanding advantages of narrow wavelength, pure light quality, high luminous efficiency, rich wavelength types, convenient spectral energy modulation, low heat generation, small size, long life, etc. It is convenient to concentrate the wavelengths required by plants to implement balanced close-range irradiation.
For plant production, intensive plant production with high efficiency, low heat load and compact space can be realized, and the use of plant hormones or other chemicals can be reduced; for the physical control of agricultural pests, LED light sources of specific wavelengths can be used to attract It also kills pests, reduces the amount of pesticide application, and achieves safe and green production; it can provide effective photosynthesis for plants. Can reach more than 90% absorption. As a new type of lighting source that can be used in agriculture, LED is increasingly popular.
At present, most manufacturers of t5 grow light bulbs are LED household and commercial lighting manufacturers, thinking that it is a combination of red and blue lights. In fact, plant lighting is another subject research. “Light, temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, air” are the main environmental conditions required for plant growth and development, and “light” is the most important of these factors.
Plants have different requirements for spectroscopy at different stages. This is also an important research project for researchers and a difficult problem for enterprises to solve. From the appearance point of view, the most common grow lights are panel type, round type, tube, followed by spotlights, bulb… , But this is not a grow light.
T5 grow light bulbs need to have some special functions. It is necessary to solve the problem of plant growth, increase production, shorten the growth cycle, and extend the flower cycle. From this point of view, it is completely different from household and commercial lighting. Therefore, xxx are not ordinary The lighting fixtures are equipped with “recipes” according to the needs of plants.
Plant growth is achieved by storing organic matter through photosynthesis. Therefore, the intensity of light has a great influence on the growth and development of plants, and it directly affects the strength of plant photosynthesis. From the classification of plants, it can be divided into negative plants and positive plants.
Negative plants need 2-6 hours of light a day, and the light should be weak, and positive plants need 12-16 hours a day, and the light intensity is relatively strong. The intensity of light given depends on the compensation point of each plant And the saturation point, because the compensation point and saturation point are different for each plant.
The light intensity cannot be lower than the compensation point and cannot exceed the saturation point. If the light intensity exceeds the compensation point, the plants will not grow and the leaves will turn yellow. When the light intensity exceeds the saturation point, the light intensity increases again, and the photosynthesis intensity does not increase.
When the light intensity is too strong, it will destroy the protoplasm, cause the decomposition of chlorophyll, or cause the cells to lose too much water and close the stomata, causing photosynthesis to weaken or even stop. When the light intensity is weak, the organic matter produced by photosynthesis of the plant is less than the consumption of respiration, and the plant will stop growing. Only when the light intensity can meet the requirements of photosynthesis, plants can grow and develop normally.
For example, peppers and tomatoes are positive plants, and the lowest compensation point must reach 2000 LUX to have an effect on their growth and development. Below this illuminance value, they will not grow. Therefore, when choosing an LED plant light, it is best to understand its type, whether it is a female or a positive plant, and what is its compensation point, so that you can choose a suitable LED plant light.
T5 grow light bulbs can control the spectral wavelength very well, and can fully meet the needs of plants for light. The spectral wavelength required for plant photosynthesis is usually in the range of 400 ~ 720nm. The blue light of 400 ~ 520nm and the red light of 610 ~ 720nm contribute the most to the photosynthesis of plants. The red and blue wavelengths of grow lights are just in this range, which can provide plants with spectral wavelengths suitable for their growth to promote plant growth.
At the same time, t5 grow light bulbs are also energy-saving (high photoelectric conversion efficiency, power consumption is 1/4 of fluorescent lamps, 1/10 of sodium lamps), spectral tunability, good point light source, cold light (low heat), good Features such as moisture resistance, small size and long life (more than 30,000 hours).
Plants “walk” from outdoor to indoor
Studying the growth behavior of plants outdoors not only covers a large area, but also has many uncertain factors, and the research parameters of plant cultivation cannot be fully quantified. It is completely different indoors.
What kind of problems does each plant need in different growth periods, what kind of humidity, what kind of light, what kind of light quality already grows best, and under what circumstances What are the different changes?
With these quantitative parameters, different plants can be planted in various growth states according to the different needs of human beings. Only plant lights can make plants “walk” from outdoors to indoors. At present, only LED plant lights can make indoor research reach the highest efficiency.
T5 Grow Light Bulbs Installation Height
The installation of t5 grow light bulbs must be scientific in order to effectively improve the light utilization rate of plant lights. In order to ensure the light intensity of the plant, the plant light should be placed as close as possible to the plant, and the distance should be set according to the power of the plant light.
Generally, the closer the distance between the plant lamp and the plant, the higher the light utilization efficiency. Use LED grow light to fill light, because LED has little heat energy, it will not burn plants, it can be irradiated at close range, the shortest distance can be 10 cm.
Generally, for plant lights with power less than 8W, the irradiation distance is about 0.5 meters, and for plant lights with power greater than 8W, the irradiation distance can be between 0.7-1 meters.
T5 Grow Light Bulbs Fill Time
Depending on the growth period and growth environment of the plant, the time it takes to supplement the light is different. Indoors where the light is not strong but can shine into the astigmatism of the sun, the fill-in time should be no less than 5 hours; for the balcony with less than 4 hours of light (only in the morning or afternoon with light for half a day), the fill-in time should be no less than 4 hours ;
Shady areas and indoor areas without sunlight should be filled with light for no less than 10 hours. Generally, the time for supplementing light during the growth period of plants is longer, and the dormancy period is less. On cloudy, rainy, and foggy days, the light should be supplemented for no less than 10 hours. One more thing to note is that since most plants photosynthesize during the day and grow at night, there is generally no need to supplement light at night.
When the growth and development of plants are affected by factors such as weather, seasons, etc., the light is insufficient, and normal photosynthesis cannot be carried out to store organic matter. With the emergence of t5 grow light bulbs, plants get rid of the limitation that they can only rely on the sun to grow normally. In addition, it can also increase crop yields, shorten plant growth cycles, and produce high-quality, high-volume, green crops.
