In the grow lights market, only the fittest survive. As one new kind of grow lights comes upon the stage, it is time to say goodbye to the elders. Together with the new favorite of the lights market-LED grow lights, hydroponic growing begins to win an upper hand. Or rather, hydroponic growing has been in the market for years and now it is cooperating with LED lights to make the indoor planting a wonderful thing. Gardeners do not need to worry about the fertility of the soil, which may ruin the carpet as well. All needed nutrients and minerals are inside the solution. It spares your trouble of thinking about what kind of food you are going to feed your baby plants.
Among those grow lights who are doomed to retire, HID and HPS lights are most common ones. It is a pity that they cost too much electricity and can not produce so much heat. There is no denying that they had their glories, but technology just moves on too fast, leaving them behind. The elders can not meet the requirements of a new society any more. They have to retreat from the stage and it is time for the new ones to shine. It is only a matter of time for these new ones, among which, LED lights are more like a leader, to dominate the market.
Let us elaborate on one point to illustrate why the traditional ones fail to survive in the market. As is mentioned in the above analysis, they emit too much extra heat. To cope with the harmful heat, which does no good to the plants, a cooling system is needed. Unfortunately, the system is too dear and hard to operate. Now, the LED lights appear with all advantages. They do not burn your hands even if you leave them on for several days. You do not have to rack your brains for the steps of operation of the system, nor do you have to have headache on the money spent.
In addition to that, LED grow lights are effective in that they can produce blue and red/orange, major colors contributing to the plant growth. It is a truth universally known that white light consists of seven major colors and only some light of a certain frequency and spectrum can exert an influence on plants. LED lights can produce the most needed lights, thus maximize the utility of energy.
In conclusion, when all the other grow lights fail, LED lights shine and stand out. They will have their place all over the world and make friends with vegetables, plants and flowers.
