LED Grow Lights Helpful Hints for Medical Marijuana Growers

  • LED’s produce low amounts of heat so they will not burn your plants. You can choose to move the lights closer to the plants. Closer lights means more light getting to your plants at a higher intensity.
  • Low Heat means less heat stress for your plants which ensure maximum fruit, flower and bud production.
  • Low heat produced by the LED lights also means less ventilation and lower air conditioning bills. Watch and adjust your room temperatures as you start using LED lamps.
  • LED’s produce the exact bandwidths plants need to grow, flower and produce fruit. Three colors are key to growth which are blue, orange and red at a ratio of 1:1:7 respectively. This technology was originally developed by NASA for use on space missions so the Astronauts could efficiently grow food.
  • LED grow lights provide your garden the same amount of usable light and use about a third of the electricity. A 600 watt commercial series LED grow light is equal to about 1600 to 1800 watts of HID lighting. This same light only uses 5 amps to produce that amount of light. A 1000 HID light in comparison uses 15 amps of electricity.
  • If you are feeding your plants on a regular schedule with a high quality fertilizer be prepared to tweak fertilizer levels because of the lower stress and heat levels. Plants will use less nutrients for better results.

 

Being knowledgeable about your LED Grow Light.

  • Hang your light in a safe fashion. Use quality hooks and parts to attached into building structure.
  • Do not get your light wet. Similar to all other lights water is not your friend.
  • Read the instructions and send in your warranty card (or do it online).
  • Use a quality light timer rated correctly for the size light(s) you are using.
  • Use a surge protector on your light. Rare surges in power lines can happen.
  • LED’s can be used for shorter photo periods in some cases. Plants need darkness and rest to grow the next day.
  • Do not obstruct ventilation openings on the LED Grow Light. Let it breathe.
  • Keep your light(s) clean and occasionally check your fans for dust. Canned air is helpful.
