Are led grow lights useful  ?


LED plant growth light is an artificial light source that uses LED as the luminous body to meet the lighting conditions required for plant photosynthesis.


In the absence of sunlight, the luminaire can act as sunlight, allowing plants to grow and develop normally or better.


This kind of lamp has the functions of strengthening roots, promoting growth, regulating flowering period and color, promoting fruit ripening and coloring, and improving taste and quality.


When growing plants indoors, light is indeed a problem, especially for some plants that have a high demand for light. At this time, it is an ideal way to use plant lights to provide plants with the light energy required for photosynthesis, but many farmers will wonder a question, are plant growth lights useful?


There are reasons for the problems. On the one hand, traditional plant lights have high power consumption, low lighting efficiency, and short lifespan. LED plant lights are very ideal light sources for plants, breaking many limitations that traditional plant lights cannot break through. But the price is relatively high.


The benefits of LED grow lights


Compared with other similar products, LED lights cost less and save more electricity. Therefore, LED lighting is being rapidly adopted. Since LED lighting systems can effectively promote plant growth, LED grow lights are also widely used around the world.


Compared with previous high pressure sodium lamps and metal halide lamps, LED grow lights are more powerful and efficient. They save power and generate less heat. Less heat allows grow lights to get closer to the plants without worrying about scorching them.


LED grow lights are transforming. They can precisely provide the low-power, high-efficiency uniform light pattern and light distribution required for efficient photosynthesis at the right wavelength and color ratio.


LED grow lights are different. Grow lights can be used as artificial light sources for plant growth. The spectrum of grow lights is adjusted according to plant growth needs. The spectral range required for plant growth lights is 400nm~700nm, that is, from blue light to red light.


Garden lights play an important role in the process of plant growth and development. Plant growth is one of the functions of photosynthesis.


Grow lights work in three different ways:


Provides all the light plants need to grow


Supplementary sunlight in winter when daylight hours are short


Increase the length of the "day" to promote special growth and flowering


LED grow lights control plant growth by regulating light. The ability to consistently grow food locally represents a major breakthrough for humanity. Grow lights allow people to grow food indoors, and making the most of waste space is also an efficient way to produce food.


Removing transportation costs from the food chain is also a major breakthrough. The ability to consistently deliver fresh and wholesome food presents a major shift in the way people live and achieve quality of life. Grow lights increase the density of food production by a factor of ten. This has important implications.


Plant Factories will continue to expand and use LED grow lights to act as large warehouse entities to provide food to the general public and those in need of special nutrition.


Whether the plant light is useful or not depends on the correct use of the whole process.


First of all, when choosing lights, you should pay attention to choose LED grow lights according to the needs of plants. If it is a light-loving plant, buying a low-power ordinary plant light cannot meet the growth needs of plants. If it is a shade-tolerant plant, use Plant lights that consume too much energy are not cost-effective; in addition, if you choose LED grow lights, you must customize the ratio of lamp beads according to the needs of plants, so that plants can obtain the best growth conditions in the most energy-efficient way.


Secondly, when using plant lights, pay attention to: 1. Switch on and off the plant lights regularly. For example, if the plant is from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, the sunlight can meet the needs of plant growth, and the time for supplementary light can be: 7:00 --9:00 and 17:00--21:00; 2. Set a reasonable light distance, too far away from plants, insufficient light, can not achieve the best plant lighting effect, too close to plants, just Local fill light will cause the plants to receive uneven light, resulting in unpredictable growth conditions.


Finally, pay attention to the maintenance of plant lamps: according to the instructions provided by the merchants when buying plant lamps, installation, inspection and maintenance are not very meaningful in a short time, but if they are not cleaned for a long time, they will not be cleaned in the correct way. The damage is very large.


Are LED Grow Lights Useful? Many scientists' research and many biologists' experiments have proved that LED grow lights are very good light sources for plants.


You should know that red, orange, yellow, green, blue, blue, and purple, the shorter the wavelength of light, the longer the wavelength, the better the growth of plants. Pink light is long-wavelength light, which can promote plant growth and achieve a supplementary light effect.


In fact, you can use light such as incandescent lamps to illuminate day and night, which is also long-wave light. On the contrary, the light emitted by fluorescent tubes is short-wave light. Use both lights together and you're good to go. In order to welcome the Olympic Games, Beijing used this method to let many flowers bloom in advance.
