LED grow lights technology: LED growth light adopts the technology of semiconductor lighting technology which is dedicated to the growth of vegetables and flowers. The wavelengths of red and blue are more suitable for the growing, blooming and bearing fruit of vegetables and flowers. The blue light is conducive to the growth of leaves while the red light is to the blooming and bearing fruit. With the high power and the high brightness high power led technology, our 12w growth light can reduce energy consumption greatly. The single high power led enjoys long life and wide light angle. Glare-type plant lights can grow ornamental flowers, potted plants strawberries, low-growing vegetables and fruits and cuttings of tomatoes. Light wave effect on plant growth: 280~315nm minimal effect on morphological and physiological processes 315~400nm (violet) chlorophyll of absorption less, influencing light cycle effect, prevent stem elongation 400~520nm (blue) chlorophyll and carotenoid absorption maximum, greatest effect on photosynthesis 520~610nm (green) pigment absorption rate is low 610~720nm (red) chlorophyll absorption rate is low that significantly affects photosynthesis and photoperiod 720~1000nm IR infrared absorption rate is low, prevent cell elongation, affect flowering and seed germination 1000nm converted into heat 8000~14000nm far infrared Features: LED color: red; blue LED spectrum: red (660nm 6pcs; 630nm 3pcs); blue (460nm 3pcs) Power: 12w, 12 pieces 1w led Socket type: e27 Input voltage: ac85~265v Suggested irradiated distance: 1.7Ft-5ft Irradiated area: 2.6-15 Square feet.
Top customer reviews
There's different brands that all look the same, and I am finding that this is the better of the bunch.
I have attached a video review and photos for you.
The theory is that the benefit to LED lights is they can target the wavelengths that the plants need, rather than waste a full spectrum of light (white light) that might not really be used as much in the plant. Also LEDs tend to use less energy just in general.
The colors generally fall into either being red or blue. This has 9 red LEDs and 3 blues. The reds tend to be good for general growth and flowering. The blues tend to be good for general growth and foliage.
How do you use this?
Place at least 12 inches from your plants. If it's any closer, the colors won't blend and some leaves get only blue and others get only red. You really want all the leaves to get all the wavelengths the bulb produces.
At the same time, note that as you double the distance the intensity of the light is only 25% of what it was. That means light gets dim quick. So you need to have the light as close as possible (but not closer than 12 inches as mentioned above). The video shows one way you can determine when the light blends.
The size of the bulb is about 5.25 inches (13 cm) long and a diameter of 4.25 inches (12 cm). I found that this bulb has fit into all the tabletop lamps I had at the house, albeit just barely.
For those into measurements, the light is about 20,000 lux on measurement within 1 inch of the bulb. At about 1 foot it's in the ball park of 10-12,000 lux. At 2 feet it's about 4,000 lux. For those keeping score, bright sunlight is about 50-100,000 lux. A bright room in your house is about 400 lux (yes that low). Most plants need 500-600 just to do photosynthesis which is why most plants die without some sunlight in the house. A topical like ficus can tolerate 1-2,000 lux. The bonus of indoor lighting is you can run it for 18 hours a day at a constant 10-20,000 lux, whereas outside, it might not say quite that consistent.
On a side note, plants need a break from lighting. More than 18 hours of light is a waste according to research. 18 hours is the max. The rest of the time the plants need to sit in the dark and do their resting phase.
I'd recommend this if you are looking to provide light for one plant (like the bonsai in the video). It's certainly not a big enough of a light to provide mass coverage. You'd need to go with the big dogs for that (~200-300 dollars). The setup I use is shop lights (which is common) and I'm using lights like this to provide coverage on the sides of the plants (more important for bonsai as we'd like the bottom to get bigger not the top).
- Great for a single plant or multiple small plants
- Can be used as a supplement light to other grow lights
- Keep at least 12 inches away, but as close as possible
- Plants need to rest. No more than 18 hours of light a day. Also, anymore than 18 hours the plant doesn't do any better.
LED grow lights do not require ballasts. A ballast is some additional circuitry that is required in conventional grow lighting to prevent it from destroying itself. Ballasts use power to perform their function and this is another reason why conventional lighting is more costly to run. With conventional lighting systems, we have limited control over what wavelengths of light they produce without using additional filters. Filters are inefficient, provide us with a limited ability to select desired wavelengths, and add to the cost of the lamps. The nice thing about LED lighting is that we can select the wavelengths of emitted light simply by incorporating the appropriate LEDs, so it should just be a matter of getting the perfect combination we know what that combination should be in the first place! It is suggested that through controlling the wavelengths of light that plants are exposed to, it is possible to increase the nutritional antioxidant content of vegetables. eg: lettuce and radishes.
To test the effectiveness of this grow light we planted three identical pots with lettuce, beans and corn. I put the first pot outside in the sun, the second pot was put on my kitchen window sill inside, and the third pot we put where it didn't get any direct sunlight, but we used the grow light.
I was definitely skeptical that anything placed under a grow light would grow better than putting it outside in the sun. Believe it or not, it grew twice as much as the one I put outside - I really didn't see that coming!
I will be continuing use of this product and plan to buy some for my sister!
