LED grow lights
LED GROW LIGHTS REPLACE HIGH PRESSURE SODIUM LIGHTS ( HPS / SON- T )
LED growth and flowering bulbs are better suited than natium lamps in several situations :
in bright light in a small space such as a grow box
For plants that are sensitive to heat and UV
reduce heat so less need for cooling and ventilation
spaces where ventilation is difficult
reduction in power consumption saves money
Noise reduction, causing less inconvenience
HPS lamps are bright ( to our eyes )
The human eye is very sensitive to yellow and green light ( 500-600 nm ) . Sodium lamps produce bright light with large amount of these colors . This makes them very bright to the human eye , but this blinding light is very misleading , because the plant uses virtually nothing from this bright light ( 500-600 nm ) used for assimilation ( growth) . Simply put, yellow and green in sodium lamps are useless wavelengths for plant growth and thus waste a lot of energy when using .
LED lights make plants grow better than HPS / SON lamps
Plants do not use all parts of the spectrum evenly use . This is because photosynthetic pigments such as chlorophyll and carotene absorb light very strongly at certain wavelengths . With LEDs can by using the right colors in the right proportion , almost any spectrum be made for an optimal photosynthesis .
The LED spectrum
The spectrum of the LED lamps is virtually growth which corresponds to the absorption spectrum of chlorophyll and carotene. Also, the peak of the necessary intensity of LED lamps growth coincides with the peak of the photosynthesis. Because one plant can tune the spectrum , for each type there may be a high growth yields are obtained .
Now replace your old bulbs with LED grow lights
Growing crops will never be the same as before . Revolutionary in this area are the LED grow lights . A number of advantages of the cultures with LED relative to conventional high-pressure sodium lamps are listed below.
