What Kind of Existence is The LED Grow Light?

Jan. 22, 2021

LED Plant Growth Lamp is an artificial light source that uses LED (light emitting diode) as the luminous body to meet the lighting conditions required for plant photosynthesis. Classified by type, it belongs to the third generation of plant supplement light lamps. In an environment lacking daylight, this lamp can act as daylight, enabling plants to grow and develop normally or better. This kind of lamp has the function of strengthening roots, promoting, regulating flowering period and flower color, promoting fruit ripening and coloring, and enhancing taste and quality.

When growing plants indoors, light is indeed a problem, especially for plants that have a high demand for light. At this time, it is an ideal way to use plant lights to provide the light energy required for photosynthesis to plants, but many farmers will be wondering a question, is plant growth light useful?

There are reasons for problems. Traditional plant lights have high power consumption, low lighting efficiency, and a relatively short lifespan. However, the LED Plant Light is a very ideal light source for plants, breaking the limitations that many traditional plant lights cannot break, and the price is relatively high.

According to the latest market research report Global LED Plant Lighting Market Shares, Strategies and Forecasts from 2015 to 2021, LED lights are cheaper and more energy-efficient than other similar products, so LED lighting is being rapidly adopted. Because LED lighting systems can effectively promote plant growth, LED plant growth lights are also widely used worldwide.

Compared with previous high-pressure sodium lamps and metal halide lamps, LED plant growth lamps are more powerful and efficient. They can save power and generate less heat. Less heat allows the plant light to be closer to the plant without worrying about the plant being scorched. The next generation of LED plant growth lights can turn on a dramatic power saving mode and provide unparalleled product reliability. They can accurately provide low power consumption, high efficiency, uniform light pattern and light distribution at the appropriate wavelength and color ratio. It is required for efficient photosynthesis.

The plant growth lamp can be used as an artificial light source for plant growth, and the spectrum of the growth lamp is adjusted according to the needs of plant growth. The required spectral range of the plant growth lamp is 400nm~700nm, that is, from blue to red. Gardening lights play an important role in the process of plant growth and development, and plant growth is one of the functions of photosynthesis.

LED Plant Growth Lamp

LED Plant Growth Lamp

Three different working methods of plant growth lights:

① Provide all the light needed for plant growth

② Replenish sunlight in winter when the sunshine time is short

③ Increase the duration of day to promote special growth and flowering

LED plant growth lights control plant growth by regulating light. The ability to consistently grow food locally represents a major breakthrough for mankind. Growing lights allow people to grow food indoors, and making full use of waste space is also an efficient way to produce food.

Removing transportation costs from the food chain is also a major breakthrough. The ability to consistently provide fresh and hygienic food presents a major change in people’s lifestyle and quality of life. The growth lamp increases the density of food production by a factor of ten, which is of great significance.

As more and more people realize the importance of health and try to avoid the harmful effects of pesticides in food, greenhouse operators find that plant growth lights will have more potential markets. Large-scale plant factories will focus on seedling cultivation.

Whether the plant light is useful or not, the whole process should be used correctly before making a conclusion:

First of all, you must pay attention when choosing a light. You should buy LED plant lights according to the needs of plants. If it is a light-loving plant, buying a low-power ordinary plant light cannot meet the growth needs of the plant. If it is a shade-tolerant plant, use Plant lights that consume too much energy are not cost-effective; in addition, if you buy LED plant growth lights, you must customize the lamp bead ratio according to the needs of the plants, and use the most energy-saving way to get the best growth conditions for the plants.

Secondly, pay attention when using plant lights:

① Turn on and off the plant lights regularly. For example, when the plants are from 9 am to 5 pm, sunlight can meet the growth needs of the plants, and the light supplement time can be: 7:00--9:00 and 17:00-- Around 21:00;

② Set a reasonable light distance. Too far away from plants, insufficient light, can not achieve the best effect of plant light supplement, too close to plants, only partial light supplementation, will cause the plants to receive uneven light, and thus the growth status can not reach expected.

Finally, pay attention to the maintenance of the plant light: install, check and maintain according to the instructions provided by the LED Plant Growth Light Supplier when buying the plant light. It is not very meaningful in a short time, but if it takes a long time to clean it, it is not safe to clean it in the correct way. The damage to the lamps and lanterns in this province is very big.
