1 Difference between traditional lights and LED lights
Before the LED lights were invented, we usually used halide lights made of metal. The operating principle is when electricity is put through an arc tube where there are several gases, including some dangerous ones, like mercury, then the light is produced. There is no doubt that in this way, not all gases can be stimulated, thus it is not that efficient. However, it is not the same case with LED lights.
Instead of using friction, an LED produces light through the movement of electrons under the impetus of voltage. It is a process by which the electric energy is turned into light energy. In this way, we have no extra heat and no radiation, which does well to plant growth.
As one of the most advanced technology, LED grow lights stand out in indoor gardening. Compared with traditional grow lights, LED lights have a couple of advantages, as follows:
First, LED lights are quite energy-saving. Using those means there is no need to frown at the electric bill if you have to put the plants under the exposure to these grow lights for continuous hours.
Second, LED lights do not produce extra heat. Have you ever worried about the damage done to your plants and about the soaring air-condition fee because of the heat? Now, you can feel relieved if your garden is equipped with LED lights.
Third, LED bulbs can be used for longer time than ordinary bulbs. You won’t change them for new ones on a frequent basis. What’s more, you can customize the grow lights according to the plants you have.
Fourth, grow lights can increase the growing efficiency and the quality of fruits a lot. Thanks to the scientists who have found out how to make LEDs with lights different in wavelength, gardeners now can choose different grow lights for different purposes. For example, the lights needed by plants in flowering and bearing fruits are different, thus we can use two kinds of grow lights different in wavelength. In this way, we can maximize the effect of those grow lights.
In a word, once you make up your mind to use LED grow lights, you are relieving the burden of your garden and your own. Isn’t it amazing? Why are you still waiting when the LED grow lights are right there waiting for you? The shorting answer is doing. ACT!
The full name of LED is Light Emitting Diodes and LED has a wide range of uses. A few years ago, the most common LED product was nothing more than an electronic display screen, which could be seen in many places. We could use it outside the store, in the stock room or in the airport to remind the passenger of the flight information. LED itself is energy saving, thus it should be a very good choice to use it in the display screen. The most remarkable feature of LED is it can help us save a lot of energy. Thereby, in our everyday life, the most common household appliances such as TV, mobile phones and laptops, usually all use LED to make the screen.
LED technology now can be applied to plants. It can be used as light source, thus contributing to the growth of vegetables and other plant in greenhouses or indoor gardens and to increase their production. Other light sources will waste a lot of electricity and will emit extra heat, but it is not the same case with the LED grow lights. They are energy-saving and heat-free. What’s more, they are very easy to be installed. LED lights are usually of different colors, they can make changes according to the needs of plants. We usually recommend customers to use LED grow lights inside which there are a collocation of red and blue bulbs. The light is very soft and friendly for most plants. There are exceptions; some plants also need orange light. You can customize LED grow lights of any color from our company.
Plants do not sleep like humans. When there is no light at night, if you open the LED grow lights, plants will grow as they do during the day. If you grow your own vegetables, you will find as the growth cycle shortens, the output is raised at the same time. This will bring you more economic benefits. If you’re just a garden lover, you like to grow and appreciate flowers; there are some plants of very short flowering period. You can use grow lights to shorten flowering period, and if you use the LED grow lights instead of the other grow lights, you will save a lot of electricity. Save electricity means ‘Save Money’.

Usually, we like spring while hate the winter. In spring, everything is in a state of rebirth, and seems to be full of energy, but in the cold winter, it is just the opposite, and we often have a feeling of deathly stillness. Therefore, many people like to have a small indoor garden in their courtyard so as to enjoy green plants all the year around. We can enjoy the fun in the process of cultivating plants, breathe fresh air and relax both the body and the mind.
Some plants are very easy to care for; they can survive even in the unfavorable environment. But some plants need special growth environment with particular temperature and humidity. Therefore, before building your own indoor garden, you must choose what kind of plants you are going to grow. The most common seen indoor garden plants are African Violets, Spider plants, and Orchids. There are some other plants to be recommended, such as dill and Fresh basil. They can not only feast your eye but also feast your stomach.
In the indoor garden, how to obtain the sunlight is an important issue. Almost all plants need sunlight. No sunlight, no photosynthesis. However, it’s easier said than done. Therefore, most indoor gardeners choose to use the LED grow lights to replace sunlight. You may worry that opening the lights for 10 hours a day will cost you a lot of electricity fee. But in fact, the biggest advantage of LED grow lights is saving electricity, and their consumption of electricity is only one-third to one-eighth of that of other grow lights. Perhaps you also worry whether a lot of heat will be produced during running the LED grow lights, and if the heat affects plant growth. In fact, before the invention of LED grow lights, all the grow lights in the market emit more or less heat, but the grow lights using LED technology will not produce any heat. On the whole, LED grow lights are very suitable for indoor gardens.
Our company is selling LED grow lights; you can buy a product to test whether it meet your requirements. Usually the most popular products are 90 watt UFO LED grow lights, we recommend that you use those inside which the red bulbs: blue bulbs = 8:1 or red bulbs: blue bulbs: orange bulbs = 7:1:1. These two types can maximize the possibility of producing the same effect of the sunlight. They can be used for most of the plants. Of course, you can also customize your favorite LED grow lights from our place.
Light is an essential energy source for plant growth, but its amount is usually not enough for greenhouse plant. In recent years, a new alternative to the sunshine – LED grow lights has been invented, which can offer different amount of light to different plants at different growing period.
Light has the magic power. It can regulate plant photosynthesis, growth, development and metabolism. Now in the greenhouse and plastic tents planting, to supplement the needed sunlight for the plants, we generally use fluorescent lamp, high pressure sodium lamp (HPS), incandescent lamp and so on. The spectral energy distribution of the light is designed according to the need of human eye, while the spectrum needed by the plant is not the same. There is a rich variety of LED wavelength, allowing for regulation and control which is suitable to be used to make growth lights.
Since the wavelength of LED lights is suitable for plant growth, then we must consider another issue-the training costs. We all realize that in modern agriculture, the culture of seeding has achieved industrialization. In a seedling workshop in China, seedlings of all kinds of flowers and vegetables are neatly arranged on shelves with LED grow lights on top of each shelf. A considerable portion of these seedlings is for export. On one hand, it helps to save energy. “In terms of traditional light source, we need to equip it with 0.5 kilowatts per square meter, but LED grow lights need only 0.27 kilowatts, which can reduce power consumption by half.” said a workshop official. On the other hand, application of this new LED light source is able to restore the original taste of plant. Nowadays, cucumber, tomato and other vegetables taste not as well as before; this is mainly due to the lack of sufficient light or the nonstandard exposure to light.
In fact, LED grow lights are widely used in many fields. They can be used in greenhouses, indoor gardens and hydroponics. Light with specific LED wavelength can even be used to kill pests, to promote animal production, to reduce the disease and feed additives and so on.
Many countries around the world are now promoting the conservation of resources, and many countries have attached great importance to the improvement of agricultural products. On the whole, LED grow lights will enjoy a promising market.
