How to use the grow light for garden Dec 24 , 2021

Gardening under the grow light

Energy-saving plant light stands bring sunlight indoors

Using a set of grow lights, you can grow many plants indoors, including indoor plants, orchids, and even some fruit and vegetable crops. LED Growing lights are ideal for starting seeds because they help ensure that the seedlings are strong and green. Herbs and salad vegetables harvested in winter can also be grown under light. By understanding how plants use light and lighting options, you can choose an indoor plant growth light system that suits the plants you want to grow.

Correct color

Sunlight contains the complete spectrum, including all the colors of the rainbow: red, yellow, blue, and purple. Just like plants that grow outdoors in the sun, indoor plants grow best under full-spectrum light bulbs, which produce a balance of cold and warm light, replicating the natural solar spectrum. They are very suitable for seedlings as well as houseplants, culinary herbs and other plants. All our Greenhouse Led Grow Lights, brackets and replacement bulbs are full spectrum.

LED or fluorescent light?

LED growth spectrum

Both produce Full Spectrum Led Plant Grow Lights. However, LEDs are more beneficial to the environment and your wallet. Our product development team has designed energy-saving, economical and effective LED lights specifically to meet the stringent needs of plants (compared to multi-purpose LEDs). They provide the bright, full-spectrum light that plants desire, with additional blue spikes to stimulate stronger root growth, enhance photosynthesis, and ensure peak growth. Enjoy your healthiest and healthiest seedlings, indoor plants, orchids and other indoor plants!

They are very suitable for your plants. High-tech LEDs are specifically calibrated for indoor cultivation.

They are super efficient. The power consumption of LED is half that of fluorescent lamp, and the service life is 5 times that of fluorescent lamp.

They are friendly to the earth. Mercury-free LED tubes do not break like glass, so fewer items enter the landfill.

The right strength

The intensity of the light received by the plant depends on the brightness of the bulb and the distance between the plant and the light source. Plants have different requirements for light intensity. Generally, plants native to tropical jungles or shady forests do not need as much light as plants that have evolved in dry, sunny climates such as the Mediterranean or southern Mexico.

Some flowering indoor plants, such as African violets and begonias, are happy to be 10 to 12 inches from the light source. Foliage plants such as ivy or cypress can be placed 36 inches away from the light source. However, many flowering plants, such as orchids, gardenias and citrus plants, as well as most vegetable plants, require higher light intensity to bloom and bear fruit.

Correct duration

No matter what type of plants you grow, you must let them rest. When it is dark, plants breathe, which is an important part of their growth process. The balance between resting time and active growth time affects many biological processes, including growth rate and bud and fruit formation. A built-in timer with the power board can easily get the right to last.

Vegetable seedlings grown under full-spectrum lights. Vegetable seedlings need 14-18 hours of light per day.

Botanists usually divide plants into three categories according to their preferred length of sunshine: short-day, long-day, or neutral sunshine.

Short-day plants such as chrysanthemums, longevity flowers, rhododendrons and begonias have less than 12 hours of light per day. In fact, these plants usually have to go through a series of even shorter periods of time before they can germinate and flower.

Long-day plants need 14 to 18 hours of light a day. Most seedlings of vegetables and garden flowers are long-day plants. When they don't get enough light, they become pale and long-legged.

Daytime neutral plants, including foliage plants, geraniums, coleus, and African violets, usually provide 8 to 12 hours of sunlight throughout the year.
