1. The advantages of LED plant growth lights for indoor plants
As we all know, the pattern of plants is related to light. If the seeds grow in the dark after germination, it is easy to form etiolated seedlings, the epicotyls are slender, and the cotyledons are not flat and cannot form chlorophyll.
After the plant receives light, chlorophyll is formed, and the flakes begin to grow. The light will inhibit the elongation of the internodes, so the branches of the plant will elongate under low light and shorten under strong light.
LED plant lights have the functions of strengthening roots, promoting growth, adjusting flowering color, promoting fruit ripening and coloring, and improving taste and quality. In recent years, LED plant growth lights have continued to sell well in the world market. What are the advantages of popular indoor plant growth lights?
1. Uniform light distribution improves vegetable quality
LED grow light lighting can guarantee a high average light spread, regardless of the position of the plant, the same lighting level can be achieved, so that the plants grow at the same speed and at the same growth rate.
Due to the high quality of the LED grow lights, the light output remains at a very high level even after many years of use.
2. Low power consumption, high efficiency
LED grow lights consume less power than traditional fluorescent lights, and it produces no heat, so the tubes can be placed closer to the plants, which means more layers can be set up in the same space.
3. Long service life and low cost
The best led plant grow lights have a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours, so you don't need to replace the plant grow lights frequently, and you don't have to worry about the plant grow lights being damaged.
Horticultural LED plant growth lights will play a major role in the lighting of horticultural crop production, especially in vegetable sowing, LED plant lights provide photosynthesis for plants, promote plant growth, reduce plant flowering time, and increase yield.
2. How long should the plant growth lights be turned on?
Different types of plants need different amounts of light, as a general rule of thumb, most vegetables and flowering plants need 12 to 16 hours of light per day, flowering plants are at the top of the range, plan to have at least 8 hours of darkness per day for most plants time.
Darkness is actually very important to the plant growth cycle. During the day, sunlight helps plants produce energy through photosynthesis. However, at night, plants break down this energy in a process called "breathing" for growth and flowering.
Check your seed packaging or plant label, ask the nursery for specific recommendations, and make sure to turn off your grow lights every once in a while, no one likes to work 24 hours a day - not even plants!
