If you are a beginner for Hydroponics, then we suggest you to check out beginners guide for hydroponics. Suitable grow lights is an important aspect of the hydroponic plant cultivation process. Apart from water, vitamins and minerals, accurate amounts of lighting are very essential. LED light is one of the important hydroponic equipments and a very good resource of artificial light for your plants. LED grow lights are designed to stimulate photosynthesis by supplying light in the frequencies that plants primarily use for this biological process.
LED lighting technology has become popular because of the fact that it consumes less than 210 watts of electricity. These lights are usually placed on a timer so that the plants receive an optimal amount of light. Constructed from highly durable material, this silver lined growing chamber may be moved and re-used with exactly the same set-up.
The ceiling support portion of the growth chamber is adjustable, which help to create the ideal grid for lights, sensors, fans and filters. It also prevents light from entering the growing area and interrupting dark cycles. The chamber is relatively airtight so that it can provide adequate amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) to the growing area.
In all most all indoor plant systems including grow rooms, grow boxes and greenhouses, ventilation is an essential element. Plants can only thrive when you keep them within a balanced temperature range. But, the LED grow chamber do not produce an excessive amount of heat so there is less possibility of any harm. To keep the air stirred in the growing area, a small portable fan is suspended with an adjustable light hanger, so that it can be set to the ideal height as the crop grows. However, the fan does not need to run constantly, you can plugged into a grow room environmental controller that will adjust the temperature. Some of the advantages that a
LED growth chamber provides are:
- LED grow lights have become safe and sound choice to standard lighting. Usually normal grow chamber lights incorporates mercury which is harmful to human body and environment. But, with LED lighting, that danger can be avoided, as the light does not contain mercury or any other harmful metals inside.It is highly transportable
- Requires no frequent replacing of parts such as lamps
- Allows for the cultivation of a variety of edible, ornamental and nutraceutical plants
- Can be installed quickly, anytime and any anywhere
- Long lasting and power efficient
