I have many houseplants that suffer in the winter without supplemental light. Even though I have a few south facing windows, it's still gloomy where I live most of the winter months. The reason for the purchase, plant light. Stick a plant in the corner, give it some extra light, I put a small (18'' tall-18'' diameter) jade plant under this light on a timer 16 hours on/8 off. it is over 3X as large. so, LED is a great way for indoor growing.
This is my second purchase of the LED technology. I was impressed with the first one (45W LED grow light panel), but this far surpasses my expectations. Anyone looking for better growing technology should give LED an opportunity. I am more than impressed. Shipped and received in time. Overall a perfect buy. 5 stars!!!
It draws less power than a fluorescent bulb, HPS bulb, or incandescent bulb with the same output. Less energy wasted by heat buildup that your plants don't really appreciate in the fist place.
I had some seedlings that just popped up within the week and I had the products to the side of the starter greenhouse. On another side I put a 800 watt HPS grow light equidistant from the plants as this light.
Since the seedlings are phototropic in nature (plant movement to face the light source) this was a good test to see which light source they preferred.
The result was the LED grow light. I was surprised a little. I don't know how the plants will act once they are fully matured as indoors herbs (cilantro/coriander and spices (mustard).
Overall a nice buy for my needs.
