How much do you know about LED plant growth lights?


The five pillars essential for plant growth are temperature, moisture, nutrition, air and light.

As the saying goes, everything depends on the sun for growth.

What should we do if we encounter bad weather such as haze and rainy days?

Plant growth lights can help us replace sunlight to give plants an environment for growth and development.


However, just like people, plants need exercise, work, and rest.

So when you use LED plant lights to fill the plants with light, you must also control the time.

Generally, it is recommended that the plant's light time be controlled between 12 and 16 hours to

facilitate Leave plenty of time for the plants to rest to ensure the efficiency of the plant’s daily work.


The quality of light also has a very obvious impact on the growth of plants at various stages. For example,

flowering and fruiting plants need sufficient red light during the period of flowering and fruit setting.

If the red light is not enough, no matter how great the light intensity is, the desired effect will not be achieved.

Affect the flowering and fruit setting rate of plants.


If the various lights of the plants can be matched in proportion to supplement the light according to the needs of the plants,

the effect will be completely different, which will not only shorten the plant growth cycle,

but also increase the yield and quality of the plants. This is also the reason for the emergence of plant lights,

and it is the reason why LED plant lights replace traditional plant growth lights.


When the time and light quality are reasonable, it is necessary to use LED plant lights to control the light intensity.

If the light intensity is not enough, the photosynthesis and respiration of plants will not even reach the same level, and it is even more impossible to think about plant growth.


If the light intensity is too strong and it exceeds the light saturation point too much, it is a waste of electric energy and is not necessary.

Therefore, the most ideal value state is to control the light intensity around the light saturation point so that the plants can grow healthily and at the fastest speed.
