In this video I take a look at the basics of photosynthesis, photosynthetic action diagrams and photomorphogenesis (how plants modify their growth and shape in response to light) and how it can affect growers. I also cover what is the best spectrum for red/blue led grow lights.
In this video I take a look at a range of mainly inexpensive led grow lights available on Amazon.
Did you know that the 600 watt light you are thinking of buying may not even be 60 watts? Did you know most feedback is useless as an indication of how good the light actually is? Do you know what double-chip leds are and if they are any good? You will after watching this video!
In this video I walk you through the listings for 5 different popular grow lights and show you what you need to understand about the information in the listing, how to work out what they really are, whether they are suitable for you and whether they are genuinely a good deal or not. After watching this video you will be able to apply what you have learned to just about any led grow light listing.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS IF THERE IS ANY LIGHT YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO A SIMILAR VIDEO ABOUT!
At Plant Photonics we have always been completely honest and open about what the actual power of our lights is. We provide customers with the following information – power of the actual leds, power draw at the wall, realistic HPS equivalent power and a genuine (quite conservative) coverage for flowering. We NEVER exaggerate the capabilities of our lights!
Part 2 – Led Wattage Explained
In this video I explain and demonstrate what led watt ratings (1 watt, 3 watt, 5 watts) really mean and how much power these leds actually draw, and the difference the colour of the led makes.
With this information you can calculate what the actual led power of a led grow light is or how many leds you will need to build your own grow light. I also demonstrate why you should always use a constant current power supply for leds!
Learn about leds and led grow lights from an expert with over 12 years experience of growing with leds, experimenting with leds and manufacturing led grow lights! My videos will cover all areas of led technology and grow lights from the basics to advanced led technology.
Part 1 – Luminous Efficiency and Why Its Important!
In this first video – Luminous Efficiency and Why Its Important, I explain what luminous efficiency is and how it answers these questions: Are led grow lights better than HPS?, How much led power do I really need for my grow space?, and Why do some people get good results with leds and other not? It also shows you ( I wire some up and compare them) the difference between good leds and bad leds!
