Many people do not dare to try indoor plants because of the lack of suitable light energy in the room. However, if you have a grow light, you can try boldly. Grow light allows you to cultivate a variety of plants indoors at any climate during any time of year. Nowadays, more and more people grow their plants with grow lights. But, which one is the best?
The types of grow lights
Grow With LED Lights
In recent years, new LED lighting technology has developed rapidly. As the fourth generation of new lighting sources, comparing with other electric light sources, LED has many different characteristics which makes it the first choice for energy-saving and environmental protection light sources. Grow with LED lights can strengthen roots, regulate flowering period and flower color, promote fruit maturity, color, and enhance the quality. In the absence of a sunlight environment, grow with LED lights can provide the required light conditions to meet the photosynthesis of plants, so that the plants can grow and develop normally or better. Compared with other kinds of grow lights, grow with LED lights are more efficient. Also, the LED grow lights provide a full spectrum, and its spectrum is in full compliance with the spectrum of sunlight absorbed by plants. Grow with LED lights consume only a quarter of the power of high pressure sodium lamp, and it’s not big, so you can grow with LED lights in a limited small space. What’s more, LED light is a kind of cold light source, its heat production is relatively low, can make the grow light closer to your plants, and do not have to worry about causing damage to your plants.
Grow with HID lights
The full name of HID light source is high-intensity discharge lamp. It includes high-pressure sodium lamps and metal halide lamps. The metal halide lamp is an efficient compact light source, which can provide options of different color temperature. Such as warm colors(3000K), neutral colors(4200K) and daylight colors(6000K). There are fewer and fewer people using high-pressure sodium lamp now. Grow with this light and grow with LED lights are different, its spectrum is not very consistent with the spectrum absorbed by plants. It lacks the blue light required by plants, so the effect of light supplement for plants is not so obvious. And grow with HID lights consumes more energy than grow with LED lights. In addition, it produces high heat when it works and is easy to affect plants.
Grow with Fluorescent lights
The luminous principle of fluorescent light is to generate high voltage instantaneously through the ballast. So that the two pins inside the fluorescent tube will generate current, and then the phosphor will emit light, and the whole luminous process will generate high heat. Fluorescent grow lights are low output, too big and bulky, and can not play a very good role. Therefore, many people grow the seedling of vegetables and herbs indoors with this kind of grow lights. But, grow with high-end fluorescent lights and grow with LED lights have a same advantage: they generate less heat than HID lights, so even if they are close to plants, they will not harm them.
In conclusion, grow with LED lights are better than grow with other lights, no matter at dusk or night, in winter or spring, you can effectively extend the light needed by plants, and your plants will shorten the growth cycle and increase the benefits for you. However, if you want to ask which LED grow light is better? I would say-WEEGrow LED grow lights. Because WEEGrow LED grow lights can run 50% less power but provide 30% higher yield with max 2.5 g yield per wattage. And their unique design adds beauty and brings convenience to your life.
