Learning Center: Best LED grow lights

What is the best color spectrum for vegetable growth?

LED grow light colors are important. Different manufactures create their own blends of red and blue, which are the biggest contributing colors for growing healthy vegetables through the veg and flowering phases. Red lights are great for photosynthesis and flowering, while blue is great for vegetable growth.

Do LEDs have both UV and IR?

UV & IR is important for growing plants with LED.UV function sterilizes growth and kills bacteria which impacts the plants ability to produce healthy flowers. IR function promotes cell division which improves the growth in both the vegetation and flowering phases.

Intensity matters when selecting your LED grow light

Light intensity is an important factor to consider when growing via LEDs Depending on your footprint size, you may consider adding a smaller LED grow light to a large light. Also, creating an environment where you can keep the LED grow lights above the plants as they grow over time.

LED grow light temperature control benefits

Temperature can play a big role, ensure that your grow lights are well ventilated, no matter if you are growing in a hydroponic grow tent kit or large greenhouse setting. The LED lights can still produce enough heat that you need to ensure heat dissipation through the use of fans or ventilation. LED grow lights can also benefit from a longer life when paired with a cooling system.

LED grow lights support efficient growth

Daily growth schedule depends on the stage of growth your plants are in; germination, vegetative and flowering. The taller your plant grows and the further along the growth phase, will reduce the number of hours your LED lighting needs to supply; typically ranging from 17 hours, to 14 hours, to 11 hours over time.

Safety goggles or glasses are required with LED grow lights

Safety is also a big concern, make sure that you wear protective goggles when your lights are on.
