Many have seen their benefits, even local officials that they have made the switch to LED street lights. As for growers, LEDs are better grow lights because of their many benefits. If you still use HPS grow lights, hear us out. We have listed down the advantages of LED grow lights over HPS grow lights and hope that you finally make the switch too.

LEDs are more efficient than HPS.

As indoor growers know, light emitting diodes are efficient in so many ways. They use less electricity and are more efficient with the power used, hence could save you money in the long run. Despite their use of less power, their brightness remains the same all throughout their lifespans.  On the other hand, HPS bulbs need to be replaced regularly to the brightness is maintained.

LED lighting units come with a built-in cooling system.

Unlike HPS lighting units. LED grow lights come with a built-in cooling system. The small built-in fans help scatter the hot air up away from the lamp and plants, making them run cooler without any risk of overheating. HPS bulbs need help with cooling, and you’ll need to vent out the hot air with a separate fan and ducting.

LED lights have the perfect color spectrum.

One of the best features of LED grow lights is that they have the perfect color spectrum that helps with the photosynthesis of the plants. Some plants also need different color spectrums in the different phases of their growth. The LEDs have color spectrums that can also be adjusted and customized, while the HPS only has one color, yellow, the ideal spectrum for the flowering phase and cannot be adjusted.

LEDs are plug-and-play.

LEDs have a plug-and-play design; you’ll just have to hang them inside your grow tent and simply plug them into a standard electrical socket. Installing them is as easy as pie! HPS lights, on the other hand, need a big external ballast and consumes more space.

The unit should have the right spectrum of colors for the plants to be able to go through photosynthesis correctly. It’s best to have five colors — red, deep red, blue, and natural white. Red light is for the growth of stems and development of leaves. This hue is perfect for the flowering phase, dormancy period, and seed germination. The deep red also supports leaf growth and enables the plants to grow larger leaves.  The blue light affects the chlorophyll content, plant height, and leaf thickness. Lastly, the natural white light is used for viewing.

Daisy-chainable

Having a daisy-chainable unit will make wiring other units a breeze. A daisy chain allows for a simple connection and scalability without worrying about different voltage levels. If you are planning to expand, however, get ones that are daisy-chainable to up to a thousand fixtures.

Programmable

Qualities of the Best Grow Tent

Grow tents revolutionized indoor gardening. They give so many benefits to growers including privacy, best conditions for growth, and more yields. Grow tents allow indoor gardeners to grow peacefully, without worrying about unpredictable weather or pests. That said, grow tents are becoming increasingly popular nowadays. You can find many of these tents on the market, but not all can deliver. That is why you should be picky when it comes to purchasing them. To help you get the best one in the market, we listed down the top qualities of the best and most effective grow tent that can give you the best yields.

It should be made of high-quality materials.

Intense 3.0 INT480

You should check the material of the tent itself. It should be strong, dependable, and durable. There are different grades of materials so always go for the tent that it thick, so it sure is going to be light tight. Thick canvas material won’t be easily chewed on by pesky insects and bugs as well. Don’t forget to check the zippers and seams as well; they should not leak light. The zipper must be of high-quality, you don’t want zippers that always jam or breaks easily.

It should have a reflective inside material.

Gorilla Grow Tents diamond reflective interior

The inside of the tent should be of reflective material. It could be silver tone or white so they can reflect the light coming from your LED grow lights back to the plants. Without this lining, lighting won’t be distributed evenly to your crops. Gorilla Grow Tents use diamond reflection technology which allows them to produce more effective growing conditions.

It should be accessible.

Secret Jardin Dark Room 2.6 DR120

The zippered doors of the tent should allow the grower to easily access the inside. The more access doors, the better. Some have view windows that allow growers to easily monitor all the plants without actually opening the whole unit. A 360-degree wrap around access will also make it easier for growers to maintain the plants.

It should come with adequate ports.

Secret Jardin Dark Room 3.0 DR240

Plants will need proper ventilation so the tent should have ports for exhaust and intake ports at the top and near the bottom area. There should also be ports for cables and electricity. Aside from the number of ports, they should also be perfectly placed.

It should be sturdy.

Gorilla Grow Tent Interlocking Metal Frame

The frame needs to be sturdy enough to hold the heavy canvas material. The bars should be made of steel, as they are the strongest and most reliable frame. It’s also best to get ones with interlocking metal frames and connectors so they won’t go wobbly and worse, crash on you and your plants.

It should be expandable. 

Gorilla Grow Tent Extension Kit

Some plants grow tall, so you’ll need a tent that’s expandable. Some tents today offer extension kits that can expand your unit up to two feet taller. The best ones are the sturdy adjustable poles like that from Gorilla Grow Tents. Plus, a higher roof also allows large plants to yield bigger numbers of fruits and also allows the heat to rise up away from the plants.
