In the past years, traditional indoor operations depends on HPS lamps to supplement sunlight. However, the traditional lamp are low efficiency makes them unsuitable as a single source of illumination.
Because of traditional lamps’ high electric power requirements. There are many other types of grow lights for indoor growth, but light emitting diodes (LEDs) are revolutionizing controlled growth technology.
Advances in LED lighting technology have increased its efficiency at converting electricity into light and are becoming increasingly profitable for indoor farm plants.
LED lights have powerful functions and sufficient cost-effectiveness. They have become popular supplementary light sources in greenhouse plant lighting, and can also become the only light source for greenhouses or indoor farms.
LED Grow Lights fixture have the advantage of being adjustable, allowing you to customize exciting plant light recipes by adjusting settings such as light intensity, duration, wavelength (color), and lighting time.
Therefore, the modern farmers can use the new environment to meet the needs for their different plants. In addition, the growers can alter plant physiology by adjusting the brightness of the light (the wavelength range is particularly important) to delay flowering, increase biomass, accelerate photosynthesis, and many other interesting plant signaling responses.
What LED grow light do professional growers use for cannabis planting?
Light is an important element required for cannabis plants. In the process of photosynthesis, plants can convert light energy into chemical energy, so that plants can thrive, especially cannabis plants, and light can also promote the production of buds.
When growing outdoors, the energy of the sun can be harnessed, while in an indoor environment, growers can simulate sunlight through LED lights with the aim of showing the same spectrum as the sun.
LED grow lights can precisely control the amount of light the plants receive, ensuring they get the same amount of light day in and day out, and growers don’t have to worry about bad weather or cloudy days in outdoor environments.
More and more professional growers are buying grow lights to increase crop and cannabis production.
Led grow lamp market sales are expected to grow from USD 1.2 billion in 2021 to USD 4.9 billion in 2026, at a CAGR of 32.2% during the forecast period. The legalization of cannabis cultivation has also increased the demand for LED grow lights from more growers.
Although LED grow lights are more expensive than traditional grow lights, they are also more energy efficient and can save more capital costs in the long run. Some lamps are large in size and have many parts, some are light in weight, and some are more suitable for seedlings or mature plants.
There are many different kinds of led grow lights, so knowing where to start can be daunting.
Today, we would like to show you our hot-selling LED grow lights in 2021.
What makes a good led grow light?
1. Lamp bead ratio
For most kinds types of cannabis plants, full-spectrum and red-spectrum LED plant lights are a good choice.
The lamp color refers to the warmth and color of the emitted light. Our LED grow light fixture adapt famous brand Samsung SMD 3030 chips. The lamp beads of this LED growth light are composed of full-spectrum Samsung white light (3000K+5000K) and 660nm red color, which can help plants from seedling to harvest.For regular plants, it saves you the hassle and cost of changing lighting to induce flowering.
During plant growth, cannabis grows best when provided with a cool blue light of about 5,000 Kelvin. In contrast, flowering cannabis performs best in warm red light at 3,000 Kelvin.
2. What are PPFD and PPE?
LED grow lamp can replaces natural light and provides power for the growth of the cannabis plant and its buds. Color Light is very important for plant production.” If there is not enough bright light, even healthy cannabis plants will not produce too many buds. As an alternative to traditional growth lights, this LED grow light is very popular for cannabis growers.
What is meaning of PPFD? PPFD is the photosynthetic photon flux density. When you choose led plant lights, you should compare the PPFD values for different plant lighting. The greater the luminous flux, and the better the effect for plant growth.
What is function of PPE in lighting? PPE refers to photosynthetic photon efficacy.PPE describes the luminous flux a grow light produces from its input power. The metric used to measure PPE is micromoles per watt per second—since watts are joules per second, it’s simplified to µmol/J.
Our hot-selling model is 800W, and LED plant growth light 2.6umol/j plays a key role in the cultivation of cannabis.
3. Testing report to share
4. Good heat dissipation
The foldable LED grow light adapt decast aluminum alloy shell to produce, which it has good heat dissipation and extends the lifespan. Surface anti-oxidation treatment, high thermal conductivity, ultra-fast heat dissipation and cooling, improve wear resistance. LED grow lights can make your plants grow quickly and happily. It provides growers with a quiet growing experience.
5. What wattage are available for our LED grow light fixture?
As there are need different power with different conditions, all sellers use the rated power to describe the power of the product, because the rated power is constant. When you choose an LED grow light fixture, the rated power of the plant light is a reference. It is important to purchase the corresponding wattage according to your needs. There are 300 watts, 400 watts, 600 watts, 800 watts, 1000 watts, 1200 watts, 1500 watts to choose from. The shape design is a folding style, and the packaging is smaller, which can save more freight costs.
6. The product size of LED plant growth lamp
There are kind of watt with different size available to choose. How much light you need depends on the number of plants you want to grow, and it also depends on the size of your planting spaces. If you want to plant in a closet or small grow tent, you can choose and buy 600 watt or 800 watt led grow light in it. If you have a spacious basement, If you have a spacious basement site, you can install some 600-watt, 800-watt, 1000-watt or 1200-watt grow lights there. Power equals pounds, so if you want high output, you’ll need more watts. The workload of a high-power LED plant light is 2-3 times higher than that of several low-power bulbs.
7. High Waterproof IP67 power supply
The LED grow light has adopted famous brand driver of sosen or meanwell power supply which it have IP67 waterproof for damp and wet locations. It also the shape have good waterproof body, it strict sealing and welding process can prevent flying dust and splashing water, and can be install in humid planting environment.
8. 0-100% DIM and Smart Control System
LED grow lighting with built-in smooth stepless manual knob dimmer. You can manually adjust and control the light intensity in the growth stage. Total 0-100% Freely adjust the light intensity according to the different growth needs of plants, while saving energy.
Internal intelligent control RJ14 port design, each channel can control 100 lamps to 200 lamps total. The RJ14 type controller has two channels. You can daisy-chain up to 100 lights per channel using one controller. This controller replaces traditional analog lighting relays and eliminates inrush current.
9. Suggested Installation Height
Each plant growth process will be divided into several stages, and the light flux required by each stage is also different.
If you want to know exactly how far from the plant the grow light should be, you need to take into account the different growth stages of the plant.
The power output of the grow light is also important, which is related to the wattage of the light source, which is the main factor in determining the optimal distance from the LED when starting the growing process.
The growth stage of a plant can be divided into three distinct stages – seedling stage, vegetative stage and flowering and fruiting stage. This means that once healthy roots are firmly established, it’s time to increase the intensity and decrease the light.
Generally speaking, LED grow lights can be maintained at 23-30 inches in the germination stage, 24 inches in the seedling stage, 17-24 inches in the growing stage, and 18 inches in the flowering stage. If the light is strong, hang the grow light a few inches higher, if the light is not too strong, hang it a few inches lower.
