Full Spectrum LED Grow Lights for Indoor GardeningBack
At first, we should know what plants need when they grow. There are four main elements for the growth of plants: air, water, nutrition and light. Nutrition provides essential chemical materials for plants. Air contains CO2 and H2O which are necessary during the photosynthesis and they can be transformed into oxygen and glucose. Light works as catalyst that motivates this process.
How much light do plants need a day?
The question of how much light does a plant need really comes down to the plant itself. There are 3 categories for house plants. Short-day plants, long-day plants and day-neutral plants. Short day plants are plants that flower when they are exposed to long periods of darkness. Long day plants are plants that require longer periods of light and day neutral plants flower regardless of the amount of light they receive. Here are some examples of plants with each category:
Short-day plants 12 hours or less
Chrysanthemum, Poinsettia, Soybeans, Tobacco
Long-day plants 10-16 hours
Spinach, Radish, Lettuce, Beet
Tomatoes, Strawberries, Corn plants
What if plants don't get enough light?
Now it's well known what will happen if plants get too much light but what happens when they don't get enough? If light's do not get enough light they will not produce enough chlorophyll. When there is a lack of chlorophyll production in a plant and is resulting in issues. This process is called chlorosis. Chlorosis is incredibly dangerous to a plant and its initial signs are yellow leaves due to a lack of iron within the plant. So if you think your plant is not getting enough light, watch out for yellowing of the leaves in order to prevent this damaging disease.
Full spectrum LED grow light to provide lights for your plants
Why we should use a full spectrum LED grow light?
Because full spectrum LED grow lights can speed up the plant's growth cycle. The quality of light, the intensity of light, and the duration of light determine the growth cycle of plants. The variables within a grow can be controlled when LED grow lights are adopted. This means that the activation of the plant's growth cells and photoperiod of the plant is synonymous with the LED grow light. Thereby affecting the growth of the plant. In contrast, if the plant's lighting requirements can be matched with the plant accordingly the effect will be significant. The plant's growth cycle will be shorter, also the plant yield and quality will be improved. This is the reason for the emergence of plant lights. The efficiency and effectiveness of LED grow lights is the reason LED plant lights are now replacing traditional plant growth lights.
SANSI provides two different kinds of grow light which can perfectly meet the needs of your plants. The SANSI Flowering LED Grow Light Bulb is designed for blooming, fruits. It can speed up flowering and make petals more vivid. Compared with other grow lights, each LED chip of SANSI Grow Light mixes all wavelengths. All wavelengths of light can be fully absorbed by plant photosynthesis without any waste like fluorescent. Blue-Ray (400-499nm) is good for taller and healthier leaves. Red-Ray (600-699nm) is good for blooming and fruits. SANSI's Full Spectrum Daylight LED Grow Light is suitable for the whole plant cycle. You can compare SANSI µmol/s and µmol/J with any light bulb designed for growing plants. SANSI's Ceramic LED Independent Pixel Heat Sink® design allows to increase the photon density (PPF/W) within the bulb. Best of all, the bulb emits a white light ideal for aesthetically pleasing environments. What's more, each SANSI LED chip has an evenly distributed spectrum between 400-780nm. Instead of having multiple LED chips with individual colors (white, blue, red, far red), each LED chip has a mix of each color giving off a whitish glow.
PPFD (Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density) is an incredibly important measurement to look at when purchasing a bulb. However, not many LED companies will show their customer's this measurement. Also a lot of the time when they do it they do not say what height they took this measure at. As this can affect the measurement. They are very happy to show the PPF and PAR of the light but not PPFD. However, as a company with over 500 in-house engineers, 2000 employees, and three advanced factories who is focused on the technological development of LED technology for 25 years, SANSI is willing to inform their customers of all of these measurements. This shows how serious they are about promoting a great trustworthy relationship with their customers and growing healthy plants. The average PPFD taken from 20 inches of height showed SANSI's 30W light at 110.30 and for the 40W at 161.30. PPF， PPFD & PAR are all important measurements when you are purchasing a grow light and SANSI gives their customers all of these. Making them a great company to buy from! SANSI's 15W, 30W, 40W Full spectrum grow lights will really bring the sun into your home. SANSI's grow lights have been heavily researched and engineered to look and perform uniquely due to their use of ceramic and hollowed out structures. They aim to dissipate heat better than any other LED light on the market. SANSI's 15W, 30W, 40W Grow Lights are incredibly versatile as they can be used with timers and fit into standard E26 sockets.
