How To Compare Cheap LED Grow Lights

Things to consider when evaluating and comparing your LED grow light. Most commercial LED grow lights are made for commercial applications and can simply add to the quantity of the LED grow lights featured above. However, for the novice grower, we wanted to share a few thoughts on considerations prior to buying your LED grow light.


LED Grow Light Color Spectrum

LED Light Colors are important. Different manufactures create their own blends of red and blue, which are the biggest contributing colors for growing healthy plants through veg and flowering phases. Red lights are great for photosynthesis.


LED Light Compared to IR Light

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.


Cheap LED Grow Light Intensity Matters

Light intensity is an important factor to consider when growing via LED grow lights. 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 Supports Economical Growing

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 Light Support Growth Phases

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.


LED Grow Light Safey On A Budget

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

What Is A Growing Tent?

A grow tent is a portable space, similar to a box or a room, made to help grow any plants you would like to grow within a safe and controlled environment. Grow tents have the ability to do so by creating an ideal environment specific to the plant’s needs. It can be placed anywhere in your home, from the garage, kitchen, living room, or even a small closet.

Different grow tents come with a variety of different sizes, fabrics, and features, but all generally come with lighting fixtures (we recommend adding LED grow lights), an irrigation system, and ventilation.

How Does A Growing Tent Work?

The way that grow tents work are they generate the perfect growing conditions for a plant with it’s unique features. They are able to simulate the right humidity and moisture that is ideal for your plant’s health.

Grow tents also allow you to efficiently grow all year long with LED grow lighting fixtures and control temperatures through the lighting and ventilation systems. Whatever ideal conditions your plant needs in order to thrive, you can recreate it perfectly with a grow tent.

What Plants Grow In A Growing Tent?

Literally any kind of plant would be ideal for a grow tent, and there is perfect reasoning for this. It is because of the way that the grow tent works. Since it has the ability to create perfect conditions for any plant, you can use a grow tent for virtually any kind of plant you want.

If you purchase a plant that thrives in tropical conditions, the grow tent can simulate a humid, warm climate for your plant. If you are starting seedlings that need help sprouting, a grow tent would be ideal for this situation. Any kind of plant, flowers, or vegetable and fruit plants would be suitable for a grow tent.

Popular Grow Tent Features

Grow tents come with a number of different features, and it is important to consider each of them, as this will help you accomplish your growing goals. Taking time to learn about your plant and its specific needs will help you find the best grow tent with perfect features.

Some of the many features that grow tents have are the strength of their zippers, intensity and type of lighting, type and thickness of fabric, material and type of framing, mildew resistance, as well as size.

What Size Of Grow Tent For Growing 1, 2, 3 or 4 Plants?

The size of your grow tent as well as the size of your plant containers will determine how many plants will fit in a single grow tent. Obviously, smaller tents will hold a smaller amount of plants. Larger grow tents will be able to fit more plants more naturally.

The size of the plant containers also affects the number of plants that occupy a grow tent. Smaller seedlings will fit in smaller grow tents by the dozen, and larger containers will occupy more space in a tent, resulting in less space for extra plants.

Also, keep in mind that during the vegging stage, you will need to have your grow lights lower, and then as the plants move into the flowering stage, you will still need space at the top for your LED grow lights.

Also, you need to consider how much penetration of light is best for your plants, because if you squeeze in too many plants, the light penetration might not be sufficient for healthy plants.

Grow tents would also beneficial for seed starting and propagation. These stages of plants require specific temperatures and lighting in order to effectively grow.

[two_third class=”” last=”no” ]

Common Grow Tent Features

When you compare grow tents, make sure that you read real customer complaints and not just the positive reviews.

Zippers

We found that ZIPPERS are a very important feature, so make sure that your grow tent zippers are very durable and that they keep the light in.

Poles

The POLES used to hang and hold your indoor garden can come in plastic and metal versions, so depending on your plans for growing and need for durability, we suggest metal poles for longevity.

Pole Extensions

Not sure how tall your plants will be this year, then we highly recommend that you purchase a grow tent with POLE EXTENSIONS so that you can raise the roof, as needed.

Shipping Box

SHIPPING BOXES can come in very discrete packaging, or very non-discrete, so make sure that you choose a company that fits your shipping needs.

Warranty

We also noticed that many grow tent warranties will require you to ship the grow tent back to the manufacturer, so we recommend USA based service centers.

How much nutrient to use in hydroponics system?

How much nutrients to use in a hydroponics system?

There is no question that hydroponics is a good alternative to growing plants in an outdoor soil based garden. However, it takes more than basic knowledge to growing hydroponically. Items such as the appropriate amount and feeding of hydroponics nutrients should also be taken into consideration. If you are new to hydroponics, you may have be consumed with researching whether or not you are feeding the proper amount of nutrients to your deep water culture hydroponic system.

 

The point here is to keep the balance of nutrients as it is very important in the promotion of proper development and growth as your plants enter the various growth phases. The first thing you can do is either purchase a quick start nutrient kit and identify the type of nutrients that your plants are already receiving. Oxygen and carbon are among the essential hydroponics nutrients needed for vegetation; however, they are generally supplied naturally through water and air, and absorbed through the plant’s roots. Therefore, you no longer have to include them in your list of nutrients that you will be feeding to your plants since in a deep water culture hydroponic system, your oxygen is supplied by an air pump and you are growing the plants in a large water supply.  This leaves the nutrients needed to feed your plants during the growth phases.  Many company’s make liquid nutrients and plant food, however we recommend a liquid nutrient made for growing plants hydroponically (here is one we tried and like).

 

Familiarize Yourself with Hydroponics Nutrients

 

The basic hydroponics nutrients that should be included in your list include potassium sulphate, calcium nitrate, monopotassium phosphate, potassium nitrate, as well as magnesium sulphate. Sulfur and nitrogen are very important in the overall supply of proteins and amino acids. Phosphorus is very important in the overall growth and photosynthesis of plants. Magnesium and potassium serve as catalysts in the production of sugars and starch. Nitrogen and magnesium play a very important role in chlorophyll production. And of course, calcium contributes to the strength of the cell walls of the plants, boosting its overall growth.  Or, simply purchase a starter kit and enjoy watching your plants grow — fast!

 

The amount of hydroponics nutrients that you will be feeding your water culture highly depends on the type of plant that you will be planting in a hydroponic system. While you can mix the nutrients on your own, the safest way to go is by purchasing pre-mixed nutrient solutions that are available in local garden shops or in our hydroponic nutrients for sale online.

The good thing about these nutrient solutions is that the amount of hydroponics nutrients are already pre-calculated in order to suit the needs of the plants that you are trying to grow. With expert advice from a local gardener, you do not have to worry about being a newbie in this field and there are many guides that you can read or simply purchase some liquid nutrients and read the label – it can be that easy.

Hydroponic system, a great gift for the guy who has everything

What do 30,000 online shoppers, over the past few months, know about the perfect gift idea for every guy in 2019? Plenty, and with a few clicks through a vast database of web site shopping trends, Sync Internet Marketing, has created their first annual Gift Guide for Today’s Modern Guy.

What makes Sync’s database different? After a year of creating content specifically designed to attract guys, shopping online for their own personal items, we compiled this data into a quick reference, which should provide enough insights for anybody looking to buy an gift for guys who tend to enjoy technology, like the outdoors and strive toward a healthy lifestyle.

How This Men’s Gift Guide Is Bringing Sexy Back For 2019

  • Mens underwear for 2019 is hot this year, and with all the new pouch underwear styles, we can see why. With our own team trying a few different underwear brands, these stood out to be a fun change of pace from the standard pair of boxer briefs, trunks or boxers in our closet.  If you have that special guy, who you would like to surprise with a great pair (or buy for yourself), check out the top underwear brands for working out, with a pouch this year.
  • Swim suits are also becoming very patriotic this year, and any guy would love to have an American flag swim trunk in their swimsuit arsenal, no matter their physical shape, as everyone loves to feel good at the beach, pool or lake. With so many styles to choose from, including the board short, the trunk or the bikini, we found the American print to be a hot seller over the past year, and predict the style to even grow into 2019.

Why This Men’s Gift Guide Will Change Their Life

  • Growing our own food is at the root of human nature, in our opinion, so why not put your modern guy up to the challenge of growing their own food hydroponically, which is only using water, with a nutrient solution.  It is fun to try, and if you purchase a hydroponic system with an LED grow light, you can get some great tomatoes in the winter.  With so many brands of these small hydroponic systems, we found a even greater selection for 2019, designed to accommodate a kitchen, a patio or even a porch growing locations. These systems are amazingly small, surprisingly affordable, and fun to experiment.
  • Let’s face it, we are all getting older everyday, and many of today’s guys like to make sure they are getting all of their nutrients, so we have seen an increase in men’s specially formulated multi-vitamins, which makes a great gift for those guys, who might not yet be thinking about all the great benefits, which many of these are being created to support.

Technology Can Now Always Be Wrapped As A Gift

  • Technology is always changing, so most any guy can benefit from a new gadget.  In 2019, we are predicting explosive growth for many of these small and now affordable home automation gadgets. Many are designed to help guys, modernize and automate their apartment, their 1950s ranch or even their parent’s basement apartment.  Door locks have never been a fun gift, but when you add a Wifi to a door lock, you open the world of home automation serenity. Pair that new lock with a set of wifi powered light bulbs and internet controlled switches, their old fashioned home, can now be a voice controlled home automation that only million dollar systems would have been able to have a few year ago.  These devices make is easy, and most can be controlled from a smart phone.

With these 5 gift buying ideas, there are really so many products that can be purchased, for the techie, the athlete or the grower.  We continue to grow our shopping destination traffic online everyday, which means our gift guide for 2019, will even become smarter, and help you buy that perfect gift, especially for the guy who has everything.

Why grow plants hydroponically?

Why grow plants hydroponically?

The 21st century has seen rapid urbanisation and the global population is now expected to grow to more than 8.3 billion by 2050. Currently, 800m hectares – 38% of the earth’s land surface – is farmed and we’ll soon need to give over another 100m hectares if we continue to use current agricultural methods. That’s not additional fertile land that actually exists though, so some are investigating the potential of vertical farming.

It has been suggested that a 30 storey 27,800,000 m2 vertical farm could be achieved within one New York City block. That farm could feed 50,000 people, providing 2,000 calories for every person each day. With results like that as a prospect, it’s easy to see why enthusiasts see vertical farms as the future.

Growing up

Vertical farms are still very much at the conceptual stage. The idea is to cultivate crops on multiple levels within high-rise buildings in urban areas. It’s not an entirely new proposition, with architect Ken Yeang suggesting a vision of high-rise plant cultivation in mixed-use skyscrapers as early as the 1980s. Professor Dickson Despommier, the leading international advocate of vertical farms, describes them as “a global solution” to the world’s urban food needs.

Vertical farms do indeed have many advantages. They would enable us to produce crops all year round using 70% less water. We wouldn’t need to use agro-chemicals and could avoid the adverse environmental factors that affect yield and quality in more traditional farming. And if food were grown in urban areas in the first place, we could eliminate the financial and environmental costs of importing food into towns and cities. Read more here.

We like to make predictions for the next year and this one seems to be a no brainer. Over the past 12 months, we have witnessed a significant amount of chatter among the media and believe that these 3 factors will collide to become one of the hottest new trends in home design. The world is evolving, yet there are a few fundamentals that are feeding into these predictions.

Our initial indicator that something is about to change was the explosion of interest for reducing carbon footprints a few years ago in regards to how far our food travels before arriving at the grocery. Think about how much lettuce needs to travel from California to Georgia.

This awareness has led to much of our commercial food distribution for lettuce to be rethought. A company based out of Atlanta, has stepped up to the plate and begun to use hydroponics to grow lettuce. Located pretty much in the middle of nowhere south of downtown and east of the Atlanta airport is a hydroponic farm of the future. And yes, it’s legal.

As the company’s founder became a new father in charge of his family’s grocery shopping; he quickly realized that a majority of the food in the local grocery was from other parts of the world and could only imagine how much jet fuel it took to get those products on his local grocery store. Read the article to learn how using LED grow lights helps his company grow all year long in Atlanta.

The second indicator that is fueling our prediction for Hydroponics becoming a big trend in home design is the concern around antibiotics, pesticides and E. coli risks of contamination of our food sources. Vegetables seem to be always in the news and this leads to our prediction that once people understand it really is easy to build a cheap homemade hydroponic system at home. We have some pictures in that link; which leads us to our third factor.

The third factor leading us to believe that “Hydroponic Rooms” will be the next big building trend is that these homemade hydroponic systems are ugly.

Guys, we know you don’t really care about having those deep water culture (DWC) buckets across the patio or even care about locating a grow tent with LED grow lights in a small corner basement to enjoy your own indoor gardening.

Ladies, we believe that you (1) really do care about the aesthetic looks of a hydroponics system, (2) want the benefits of growing and controlling the growth of your vegetables and produce and (3) would love to have a constant supply of only the freshest of vegetables without needing the daily or weekly trip to the grocery store.

These 3 factors lead us to believe that Hydroponic Grow Room are the next trend in home design!

We rest our case and can’t wait to watch this trend unfold over the next year. By the way, think about all of those home theater rooms that no longer get used; hence a lot of homes have the space already!

Hydroponic Grow Tips

BEST HYDROPONICS GROW TIPS

Far too many hydroponics enthusiasts end up failing for making mistakes that can be easily avoided by educating yourself. As long as you observe the following tips below, you should have pretty much little to no issue when it comes to growing your plants in a hydroponic system. These tips aren’t just focused on hydroponically grown plants; they can be applied to pretty much any other method of growing plants as well.

#1 Check your pH levels often due to plant growth phases
Plants, similar to humans, have different stages of growth that requires them to have different requirements for optimal growth. The most fundamental aspect to understand about hydroponic gardening is the soil or nutrient enriched water’s pH level, which indicates how acidic it is. Different plants have different pH level requirements, but as a general rule of thumb, keeping your pH levels around 6 would be the most ideal. The easiest way to find your hydroponic system’s ph level is to use a ph level meter (buy it now). The most common methods of adjusting pH levels is to apply potassium hydroxide if you wish to raise the pH, or to apply phosphoric acid if you wish to lower it – kits are sold to make it very easy (buy it now). Food grade citric can also be used if you want to go the organic route.

#2 Test soil or water often to make sure you have the right amount of nutrients and don’t forget your water temperature
As a general rule of thumb, you want to keep the temperature of your plant’s water grown in a hydroponic system somewhere around 70 degrees, with a margin of 5 degrees. It’s common for water to change its temperature, and you don’t want your plant to end up withering because you failed to keep its water at the right temperature. It’s important for you to keep testing your hydroponic plant’s water and ensure that the temperature is right. If it’s far too low, you may want to consider adding a heater or a cooler if it you find it warm.

#3 Use a liquid nutrient solution to ensure adequate amounts of food
All plants have a specific requirement for nutritional intake that has to be met. Having a quality liquid nutrient solution in your arsenal of hydroponic plant maintenance equipment will go a long way in taking out all the guess work when it comes to mixing the right liquid nutrient solution. Having this solution ready at your disposal will certainly make your life so much more convenient, and it will allow your hydroponic plant to get the appropriate amount of food and nutrients that it requires. After all, liquid nutrient solutions are pretty much what hydroponics are all about (buy it now).
