Using LEDs as Grow Lights
Home And Family: Landscaping Gardening • Published: Jul 07, 2017

To replicate the natural solar spectrum, gardeners use indoor lighting for plant cultivation. Artificial grow lights are important because they provide plants with either supplemental lighting when natural light is dim, or to provide the sole source of lighting for plants grown indoors. During photo…

Top 5 Benefits of Using LED Grow Lights in Plant Cultivation
Home And Family: Home Improvement • Published: Jul 26, 2017

When growing plants indoors, it has always been difficult for cultivators to find an effective lighting source identical to sunlight. Before LED technology revolutionized greenhouse farming, gardeners were attempting to grow plants with traditional lighting, such as compact fluorescent lights (CFL) …

How to Choose LED Grow Lights
Home And Family: Home Improvement • Published: Jul 28, 2017

Choosing LEDs to grow plants can be a smart and rewarding decision if the correct LED lights are used. For indoor plant cultivation, the correct LEDs need to produce proper amount of photosynthetic active radiations (PAR) that can enhance the plant growth. To get the specific light outputs, manufact…

How Different Spectra of Light Affect Plant Growth
Home And Family: Home Improvement • Published: Aug 19, 2017

It is a fact that plants are dependent on light to generate food, grow and reproduce. Without light the process of photosynthesis will not take place and natural growth cycle will not occur. When a plant is under natural lighting conditions, its growth and development is influenced by the sunlight i…

Which Matters: PAR or Lumens?
Home And Family: Home Improvement • Published: Sep 14, 2017

Indoor growers would have fantastic yields from grow lights if they knew which lights perform better for their crop. LED grow lights allow fine tuning of light spectrum specific to the needs of plants to develop through different stages. But, if the right lights are not chosen yields will be too low…

Understanding CRI and CCT of LED Lights
Home And Family: Home Improvement • Published: Oct 03, 2017

Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are light sources that can be substitutes for natural sunlight and some produce full spectrum light to support full cycle cultivation. They can produce light with different wavelengths corresponding to different colors. While choosing LEDs for growing plants, along with …

How to Determine LED Wattage for your Grow?
Home And Family: Home Improvement • Published: Oct 10, 2017

Wattage of an LED determines the electrical energy input that a light requires. It is a measure of the LED’s energy consumption but not the light output. When buying incandescent bulbs, the bulb’s wattage indicates the brightness of the bulb. The higher the wattage of an incandescent bul…

The Importance of Day Light Integral for Greenhouse Farming
Home And Family: Landscaping Gardening • Published: Nov 02, 2017

The primary way to increase the yield of a greenhouse crop is to increase the amount of photosynthetic light delivered to the plants. The amount of light that plants receive should be optimal as both excessive and deficient light can impact growth negatively.
