Choosing the Best LED Lights
for Your Investment Dollars
In choosing an LED Grow light there are many factors that you will want to take into consideration.
First and foremost is the light’s spectrum. LED grow lights are made up of many small LEDs, or light-emitting diodes. Each of these project one specific wavelength of the electromagnetic scale. We interpret this as the visible (although sometimes invisible) color of a diode. Plants use and absorb an array of colors from 400nm to 700nm in order to carry out photosynthesis and other developmental processes.
Many LED companies only use 2-3 of the primary colors needed for photosynthesis and plant growth. While these lights provide the plant with the most readily absorbed wavelengths, they ignore crucial parts of the spectrum that the plants also utilize, albeit in smaller quantities. While plants subjected to these conditions find a way to survive and carry out photosynthesis, they are far from actually thriving. Plants that are not receiving their complete lighting spectrum needs can become leggy and produce only wispy flowers.
Kind LED Grow Lights feature a complete 12-band spectrum which provides Cannabis plants with every lighting requirement needed for robust and complete growth, across all stages of their lifecycle.
Efficiency for Growers
Secondly, in the absence of all of the heat that HIDs produce, there is no need for extra inline fans, ducting or AC units. Just one HID light can require up to $500.00 extra dollars in setup cost! These additional costs can be completely avoided using KIND LED lights. Cost aside, another great benefit of this is that hot climates that would normally create struggles for HID growers can now become quite comfortable with LED, thus producing amazing results. Small spaces that would become ovens with HID lights can now be used and filled with cool running LED lights and produce beautiful high yielding plants.
