Budmaster LED lights
Why are LED's better for plant growth?
Led's are better for plant growth in all stages for many reasons, but lets start with what the main problems are with traditional lighting.
With a traditional HID / HPS type of lighting fixture your plants are only making use of approximately 10% - 15% of the light output (i.e. the output is of extremely wide bandwidth), this is of course highly inefficient and undesirable. Add this to the fact that you are generally consuming 600w of energy (considerably more if you have an old ballast) and only using 60w - 90w of that energy for your plants and it all starts to seem a bit insane.
Now with led's we can tailor the colour and bandwidth of each led to ensure that all the chlorophyll absorption peaks are being targeted efficiently thus promoting healthier growth whilst using less energy and with zero waste.
And of course as our led grow lights are not emitting huge amounts of heat it also makes it much easier to control the environment in your grow room to ensure healthier, higher yielding plants. As a general rule of thumb it is always easier to warm something than to cool something and this includes your grow room.
