Eagle Star Lighting Foldable Dimmable LED Grow Lights series are full spectrum grow light fixtures with Samsung +OSRAM LED Chips. The plant light can provide more than 60% higher in PPFD compared with HPS lamps with lower temperature, and the grow lights increase the production and save more than 50% power consumption. The best led grow light fixtures can be used in many applications such as cannabis cultivation, vegetables, greens, and so on. The slim design grow light fixture is foldable up to 180 degrees, making it small, compact, and easy to install.
A specific solution for indoor plants: led grow lights
LED grow lights are designed to establish a photosynthetic environment for plants, (such as Vegetables, Cannabis, and Marijuana) with full spectrum specialized LEDs. Eagle star lighting design the grow lights for plants especially, you can use the grow lights for indoor plants in order to increase the production.
Full spectrum led grow lights are the best options for all kinds of indoor grows and greenhouse plants. Compared to traditional lights, the grow lights do not require a bulb with high temperature and high consumption. The LED grow lights can last longer than standard incandescent bulbs and HID bulbs like metal halide and high-pressure sodium. An HPS or metal halide bulb may last up to 20,000 hours, but the plant light LED chips are now rated at 100,000 hours, which is 5 times the life than the older ones. An HID lamp will lose half of its brightness by half its life but A DLC Premium rated LED grow light will hold 90% or greater of its lumen output. Another benefit to LED grow lights vs HID grow lights is the higher efficiency ratings. LED grow lights emit less heat, and convert most energy to lumen output.
Things you need to Consider When Buying an LED Grow Lights
Coverage Area & Light Distance
First, you need to know the size of the growing space you will prepare for the plants. Usually, a plant tent(47”*47”*79”) will be a good start. 10-20 mother plants can be placed in it, and 2-4 mature marijuana grows well in it. Next, by using the spider grow lights in our store, you will have a good harvest. The most common coverage areas of the grow lights are: 2’x2’, 2’x4’, 3’x3’, 4’x4’, and 5’x5’. The footprints of our led grow lights for cannabis are 4’x4’ just fit the plant tent.
Light distance is another thing you need to consider when buying a LED grow light. I’ve had several growers contact me asking for advice on plants that grew too close to their grow light – because they did not factor in the light distance when buying their LED grow lights. Let’s go over a quick example. Say your grow space is 4’x4’x6’ (L x W x H) and the recommended light distance on your LED grow light is 10” to 24”.
PAR is a measurement of the intensity of light shining on a plant. It ranges from 400-700 nm which is the visible spectrum of light. If a grow light has higher and more complete PAR the plants will get better growing results.
(photosynthetic photon flux) is the total amount of PAR that is produced by a grow light each second. On grow light listings, you’ll see it as µmol/s.
(photosynthetic photon flux density) is the amount of PAR that falls on a given surface each second. PPFD is a spot measurement of a specific location on your plant canopy and it’s measured in micromoles per square meter per second (µmol/m2/s).
Seedlings, clones, mother plants: 200-400 PPFD
Early to late Veg: 400-800 PPFD
Flowering: 800-1200 PPFD
PPE refers to how efficient a grow light is at converting electrical energy into photons of PAR. On grow light listings, you’ll see it as umol/j. The higher the number is, the more efficient the grow light is at converting electrical energy into photons of PAR. The photon efficacy of ESL grows lights is 2.8-3.0 umol/j which is higher than other suppliers.
The light spectrum is another thing that should be considered when purchasing a LED grow light. The spectrum is essentially the colors of light that are emitted from the grow light. Different colors are made by photons at certain energy levels and are broken down into nm. The differences in the nm of a photon, or its color, change its potential effectiveness to drive photosynthesis. When growing cannabis, the plant uses more blue light when in the vegetation stage and then switches to use more red light when in the flowering stage. Although blue light and red light are needed most, cannabis plants also need other colors in the PAR range (400-700nm). UV (ultraviolet) light and IR (infrared radiation) light are also needed – in smaller amounts. Eagle star lighting led grow lights are full spectrum grow lights which cover all the wavelength to meet different stage of the plants.
Wattage and Production
The wattage of the grow lights is a measure of energy consumption. In other words, higher energy consumption means higher production, it will help you save a lot of time and earn more money by using higher wattage-led grow lights. Especially when you buy a grow light for cannabis, it will produce 2g cannabis per wattage of the grow light by our calculation. You need four or five months to plant cannabis, now it only needs two and a half months. Now ESL type A grow lights for sale, and there will be more grow lights for sale to meet different applications.
