Plant breeders, whose demand exceeds the supply of single cultures on the windowsill, found themselves usually faced with the problem of proportionality – as the costs, which are to be expected didnt match the value of the expected outcome. Too much got to be paid for power supply as well as for climatic technology to avoid overheating. Only with larger acreage or valuable plants, the use of high-wattage sodium lamps is actually recommended. A certain remedy was the use of energy-saving lamps, which are cheaper to operate and also easier to handle during assembly. Especially in the vegetative phase a low-energy CFL or fluorescent bulbs represent a real alternative, but the future of lighting technology in the breed is, however, influenced by a much more efficient and, above all, resource-friendly technology, which has successfully left the the experimental phase in recent years and is now useful even in the amateur and semi-professional sector: Lets talk about modern LED Grow Lights.

The advantages of LED lighting compared to conventional technologies are diverse.

  • Improves power consumption. The power consumption of LED lamps is sometimes well below the usual values ​​for NDL. The electricity bill becomes leaner
  • Precise light: LED lamps got not as many fluctuations in the light spectrum as analog bulbs.
  • significantly low heat. Event hermetic rooms as Grow Boxes wont heat up as quickly as with MH bulbs. The use of climate control can sometimes be waived.

LED bulbs are available in various styles at the moment . First, we have separate offers for 90W UFO LED for the growth and the flowering phase in the range. But also a dual or a switchable version for those who want to spare the conversion before flowering. If you want to illuminate rather small areas you can also rely on a cheap LED spot, which can accurately align to the plant. This spot uses only 3W.
