Led Grow Lights

Full spectrum LED lights produce a wider spectrum of light as opposed to the traditional red and blue light offered by other bulbs.

Better Lighting for Hydroponic Gardens 

The number of hydroponic gardeners across the country continues to grow and the increased interest in the hobby is encouraging changes in the industry. One major change has been the introduction of LED lights due to the many benefits this technology offers. Here is what every gardener should know about how these lights could improve their experience and results with their indoor gardening effort.

Reduce Heat Production

One of the problems experienced in many hydroponic gardens has been ensuring that all plants receive an adequate amount of light without the exposure to high levels of heat. Many gardeners have had to install complex exhaust systems to achieve this goal. LED Grow Lights operate with as much or more brightness as other systems but produce much less heat. The bulbs also remain cool to the touch, so they are safer for people working with the plants.

Improve Plant Quality

Full spectrum LED lights produce a wider spectrum of light as opposed to the traditional red and blue light offered by other bulbs. The result is that mature plants have more color and are a deeper green than what has been possible before. A wide spectrum of light enables plants to thrive from seedlings until full growth.

Save Some Money

LED bulbs operate more efficiently and help to reduce utility bills. The reduction in heat also lowers installation and maintenance costs because no ductwork or exhaust fans are needed. LED bulbs also produce larger and faster yields, so people get their product sooner and with less effort. The speed of the crop growth also enables people to potentially increase their yield dramatically. This is useful and potentially profitable for anyone that grows plants to sell as well as those that grow for their own needs.

Help the Environment

LED lighting has become popular because it is an environmentally smart product. LED bulbs do not contain mercury or lead like other types of light bulbs. The bulbs are more durable and last longer than traditional bulbs, so there is much less waste over time.

LED lights offer the potential for all hydroponic growers to have more crops in the same or less space with lower costs and a better-looking harvest. The benefits are seen in every stage of growth, and the difference is noticeable quickly. Every indoor gardener that wants to produce more without making a major investment should learn more about what LED lights have to offer.
