What are LED grow lights ? LED grow lights are special panels that contain LED diodes and can be used to promote the growth of plants without the presence of the sun.
Why are LED grow light panels so useful ? There are many reasons why 3w LED grow lights are so useful. Here are some of them:
- compared with traditional grow lights they have a much greater life span ( 50.000 hours compared to a maximum of 15.000 hours for normal lamps );
- they use less power than traditional grow lights, in fact they are up to 90% more efficient;
- they generate less heat than traditional grow lights so you won’t be required to use any cooling equipment;
- generating less heat means that they can be touched during operation and are safe for children also;
- more resistant to shocks and vibration then any other lighting fixtures, easier handling. LED’s can’t break if you drop them on the floor by mistake;
- lightweight means they are easy to carry, install and also the shipping cost is much reduced;
- in general grow lights enables you to grow any plants in any environment; there have been cases of natural disasters like floods that destroyed local plant cultures and also stranded entire regions; In this cases using LED grow lights people can grow their plants on the spot; Mitsubishi Chemical’s has already developed complete systems like this container vegetable plant to assist in this areas.
- your plants will grow during the night or in low light conditions.
Does LED grow lights is good and healthy ? Yes it is. In this times when the sun’s ultraviolet rays are becoming extremely dangerous for our health because of the depletion of our planet’s ozone layers, in this times when air pollution in some open areas is at it’s historical heights and the sun is rarely seen because of smog, i sadly believe that one of the few healthy options someone has on growing it’s plants is to use 600W LED grow lights to promote plant growth. This is science’s answer to our current and future needs.
