How to Find a Suitable and Satisfactory LED Grow Light?

Plants fill light is the use of semiconductor lighting principles, dedicated to flowers and vegetables and other plants produce a combination of high-precision technology, plant growth assist lamp. General indoor plants flowers, growing over time getting worse, the main reason is the lack of light exposure. LED grow light exposure through the spectrum required for plant, can not only promote their growth, but also to extend the flowering period to improve the quality of flowers. Further to this highly efficient light source system applied to greenhouse, greenhouse facilities, agricultural production, on one hand, it can solve sunlight insufficient led to tomato, cucumber and other greenhouse vegetables taste decrease, on the other hand, it can also make fruit and vegetables in greenhouses ahead of the market in winter.

How to find a suitable and satisfactory LED grow light?

First, light intensity

LED grow light is developed based on the basis of plant photosynthesis artificial light tool. In photosynthesis light intensity does not refer to how bright the lights, but to see how much light reaches the quantum unit of time per unit area, which is the photon flux (PPFD), its unit is μmol · m-2 · s- 1, while the Lux makes no sense here. When selecting a plant light, first look at the product identification, whether the identification is correct or not. Secondly, consult matters related to the business according to the species, such as optimal hanging distance and irradiated area.

Second, light quality

For light quality, if not to provide lighting for the plant factory, plant lamp generally just need red and blue light quality is enough. Different plants need for red and blue light quality is different, some need a little more blue,

some may need more red light. But pure red light or blue light on plant growth is negative, it is necessary to choose the right ratio of red and blue. Buyers can make their own ratio based on the plant species, or let merchant providing a suitable ratio after the research and development.

In addition, energy consumption, energy absorption rate, lifespan, maintenance costs are also need to be considered.
