LED Plant Grow Lights
These LED Grow Lights are also designed to be environmentally friendly. Extremely energy-efficient, the Grow Lights generate minimal levels of heat output and consume significantly less energy compared to standard fluorescent light systems. With today's sky-rocketing energy
costs, this LED light is also good for your wallet. As an extremely cost-effective solution to growing your favourite plants indoors, wasted heat and light are both reduced.
These are the most important visible light frequencies for your indoor plants for regulating their healthy growth and enhancing the natural process of photosynthesis. By focusing on the red and blue parts of the visible spectrum, LED Grow Lights are incredibly efficient in optimizing plant health and also save energy by not generating light in colours that plants do not use.
LED Colour Spectrums
Frequently Asked Questions
the RED spectrum (620nm-660nm) – for flowering and fruiting stages. Big flowers, More buds, Bigger yield.
the BLUE spectrum (460-470nm) – for vegetative growth during early stages to produce thick, stocky plants to support the weight of all those buds.
the Orange spectrum (610nm) – to round out production in the flowering/fruiting stage and addresses issues with certain plants as noted above
the White Spectrum--to let the lights more good photosynthesis efficiency
Both red and blue light are part of the visible spectrum, this is the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum that is visible to (can be detected by) the human eye. Red light has a wavelength of 620-750nm and a frequency of 400-484THz. Blue light has a wavelength of 450-495nm and a frequency of 606-668THz.
What are the frequencies of red light and blue light?
The red region has a utilization peak around 660-670 nm for Chlorophyll A and around 635-645 nm for Chlorophyll B. Plants generally make good use of all red wavelengths.
Why is red light important for plants?
Photosynthesis works most fundamentally from red light and secondarily from blue light. However, many plants have some need for blue light for proper growth regulation and/or flowering and/or fruiting.
You can grow any indoor plant with this Grow Fixture. LED grow lights are used to grow orchids, roses, peppers, tomatoes, basil, lettuce, herbs, kale, spinach, wheatgrass, broccoli, wildflowers, cucumbers, and many other fruits and vegetables. They are also great for growing or perking up any houseplant. Grow Lights make excellent choices for cloning and seedling lights since they can be placed in tight spaces without worrying about heat build up. The lights would also be suitable for all stages of plant growth.
Why is blue light important for plants?
They are used by home hobbyists, urban gardeners and commercial growers. Even NASA uses LED grow light technology to grow plants in space!
