What is an LED?

An LED or light-emitting diode is a small semiconductor device which emits light, usually colored, when an electric current passes through it. LEDs are energy saving and have a long service life. NASA has been using LED grow lights to grow food in space.


LED are:

-Effective /Efficient - you save up to 90% energy compared to HID/HPS
-They emit very low heat and are safer than other lighting
-The are soft on your wallet and the environment
-Maximize photosynthetic response
-They ONLY emit the light that your plants use for photosynthesis.
-Provide the exact wavelengths that plants thrive on
-Create an environment that requires less watering
-LED grow lights are the most efficient way to grow indoor hydroponics


LED are Effective:

•We have selected creative and efficient designs for the light patterns in our LED grow lights. Not all LED lights are the same!
•By leaving out the light that plants don't use, we MAXIMIZE the photosynthetic response of the plant, allowing your crop to flourish.
•Plants love Red and Blue wavelengths of the visible light spectrum for photosynthesis. This combination is INCREDIBLE for both budding and flowering.
•In other words...Our lights hit the exact frequency wavelengths your plants are looking for!



•LED lights are super bright and will last for a long time. The life-cycle on LED lights compared to HIDs are dramatically longer.
•Since LED grow lights do not create much heat, you can bypass a fan purchase and not have to worry about any heat-signatures, thus saving MORE money and energy!
Saving the Planet and your electricity bills:
•LED grow lights typically save 70% to 90% electricity than compared to conventional HPS/HID grow lights.

Your LED grow lights will not only put a dent into your electricity bill (Probably enough to pay the lights off themselves over time!) , but also help to achieve our goals of responsible living!


Safer for you and your plants
■LED Grow Lights are safer to use than other lighting choices that have large glass parts, mercury, or and lead The low heat and low voltage of LED.
■HID lights create a LOT of heat and dry out the soil. You can extend the time between watering cycles because the plants transpire less under LED grow lights. So, Less Watering when growing plants indoors.


LED Grow Lights are the newest and most efficient way to grow plants indoors! This revolutionary form of light is different from other traditional lights, such as High Pressure Sodium (HPS) or Metal Halide (MH). LED Grow Lights are comprised of multiple low-watt light sources, working together on a single board. HID lighting is extremely inefficient; it generates a lot of heat while only producing 30% photosynthetic light. Unlike HIDs, 1W LED emit very little heat because all the power is efficiently converted into targeted light wavelengths for plants. For this reason, additional fans, ducting and AC are rarely if ever necessary. Additionally, LEDs will last 50,000 before they've lost even 30% of their initial output, not to mention they're still 100% functional! So there is no need for yearly or bi-yearly bulb changes, as 50,000 hours is 6 solid years, and after that you can still continue using the light! Lastly, LED grow lights use 65-70% less energy than traditional HID lighting, while producing the same or better results. With no additional cooling costs, bulb costs, and decreased electrical costs every month, imagine what you can do with the extra money!


How LED Grow Lights Promote Plant Growth?

Even though HID lights have leanings toward a particular end of the light spectrum (blues for metal halide, yellow/red for high pressure sodium), they emit light in the full visible spectrum just the same way an everyday light bulb does. In general, plants respond in some fashion to all light, however, they get the most benefit from various blue and red wavelengths. Consequently, they get the least benefit from greens and yellows as most of it is reflected back.
What we have now are LED grow lights that are optimized for full-cycle plant growth; from vegetative growth to flowering. Keeping things simple, light from the blue end of the spectrum is necessary for vegetative growth - making for strong, healthy plants with thick foliage. In contrast, red and orange light are necessary for flowering and fruiting - producing large, dense buds along all of the nodes that were created, in part, by the blue lights.


What is the LED Grow Light Wavelength?

In terms of an LED grow light (or any lights for that matter), the term wavelength refers to the distance between peaks and troughs in a wave. Light wavelengths behave similarly to waves in water and their peaks can be close together or far apart. It is this trait that determines the color you see from red (long wavelength) to blue (short wavelength). Each shade of light along the visible spectrum can be measured in nanometers (nm) that range from 380nm to about 780nm, from blue/violet to red, respectively.
It is from within the visible light spectrum that plants derive all of the energy needed to conduct photosynthesis and grow. Taking advantage of how plants react to certain wavelengths of light is the basis behind the the development of LED grow lights.


What plant is the LED Grow Light use for?
(1)Herbs for cooking: basil, oregano, cilantro . . . any herb
(2)Flowers - from annuals to perennials, to orchids, and zinnias etc.
(3)Fruits & vegetable growers - hobby gardeners to commercial hydroponic farms.
(4)Grow Medical Marijuana
