CURRENT SPECIAL: 90W UFO GROW LIGHT - R1999.00 INCL. VAT
LED grow lights are compact lights used specifically for growing plants indoors or in greenhouses. These lights are extremely energy-efficient and portable, and are an attractive alternative to the more expensive and heat-producing HID (high-intensity discharge) lamps. Due to the compact size and low energy consumption, LED grow lights are used for both large-scale experimental purposes and production to the amateur home gardener.
LED grow lights are electric lights comprised of light-emitting diodes (LEDs). These lights provide an electromagnetic colour spectrum specifically suited for growing plants indoors. LED grow lights mimic the bluish colour of natural sunlight, and provide green plants with the light necessary for the process of photosynthesis. Moreover, LEDs do not emit as much heat as sunlight and other forms of lights, and therefore plants grown under LED grow lights require less water.
LED Grow Lights vs. Other Grow Lights:
LED grow lights efficiently provide light in the spectrum most beneficial for growing plants. While grow lights may also use HPS, incandescent or fluorescent light bulbs, the LED grow light is unique. It produces more usable light with much lower power input and generates considerably less heat than other lights. They also boast a considerably longer life cycle with no colour degradation.
The Large-Scale Use of LED Grow Lights:
LED grow lights are used for industrial food production and in hydroponics, the method of growing plants without a soil-based growing medium. LED grow lights are used by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to grow plants on the International Space Station for experimental purposes, and to provide astronauts and space scientists with fresh food.
Home Use of LED Grow Lights:
LED grow lights are perfect for small scale, home gardening projects. The lights are small and energy-efficient, and therefore consume little space and electricity. Plants transpire less under LED lights, and therefore require less water. LED lights are lightweight and easily portable. Moreover, indoor LED grow lights allow gardeners to cultivate plants during winter, or get an early start to the growing season by growing seedlings indoors.
The 90W UFO LED grow light is suitable for an area of 2m x 3m. If have a larger area, such as 4m x 5m,use a 120W led grow light; 5m x 6m,use a 300W led grow light or multiple smaller units.
