Most plant strains that tend to grow very tall outdoors are difficult to grow indoors, and indoor gardeners are limited to short types of plants. New high-intensity grow lights recently broke this rule by keeping tall, lanky plants short and dense without sacrificing yield. What this means is that if an indoor grower wants to grow a tomato plant whose tent stretches like a vine, high-intensity LED lighting will allow the grower to grow the plants without stretching. The reason for this phenomenon is that plants require high light intensity and specific wavelengths (colors) of light. Plants require certain wavelengths of light during their growth cycle, and certain strains require more of these colors than others. Then, if you give these long strains a higher dose of these wavelengths, they don’t need to stretch, so they stay shorter than they would otherwise.
This new revelation in grow lighting technology has only recently been seen in commercial gardens and has proven to be an unexpected benefit to those using this new LED light. With shorter branch spacing and lower heights, your garden can contain strains hitherto thought impossible to grow indoors or in a greenhouse. These strains, which tend to be thinner and taller, are sometimes more valuable, and with the new advent of compact gardening using high-powered LED lights, indoor gardeners are reaping huge profits and selling products that sell for higher prices due to limited supply. can be sold.
The benefits of short, dense plants are enough to prove profitable, but there are other benefits that come with high-intensity LED grow lights.
higher quality produce
One of the world’s leading LED grow light companies has proven that 3w LED grow lights can improve the flavor, color and overall quality of fruits or flowers that grow under these new lights. The higher intensity light that plants need most, along with the microlights this new grow light provides, allows plants to trigger a protective mode or increase nutrients and color due to higher amounts of beneficial light wavelengths.
Reduce heat and evaporation
LED grow lights are very efficient at producing light, so they generate very little heat. This reduction in heat output is very beneficial to commercial growers as it reduces cooling costs, cooling equipment and plant stress. Another benefit of reduced heat is less water and nutrient evaporation. Less water evaporation means much less watering, less nutrient wastage, and less time required to maintain a hydroponic or soil garden.
Reduce maintenance and replacement issues Quality LED grow lights are built to last 5+ years without LED failure and do not require high power cooling equipment such as ballasts or HID lights. This extended lifespan provides growers with a higher ROI and a much easier growing experience with less maintenance and equipment replacement.
