BloomBoss TrueSun 2x2 LED Grow Light

BloomBoss offers a small grow light that is perfect for a beginner grower’s 2×2 grow tent. The BloomBoss TrueSun 2×2 has a shape of a 90s portable radio, with a royal blue exterior and red switches. It has that retro-feel that can add a bit of fun into your indoor setup. Don’t be fooled by its small size though, as it can make you grow high-quality, robust yields as would the other larger LED grow lights in the market. With that said, we listed down the qualities we love about the TrueSun 2×2 and why you should consider getting it for your small indoor garden.

Here are five of the many amazing features of TrueSun 2×2:

Small but performs quite well!

The TrueSun 2X2 has a size dimension of 14.2 x 7.9 x 5.1 inches and weighs only 10 lbs. It uses 110 watts of power to light up its 44 high-intensity 5-watt LED chips with IR. It has two LED panels with an operating temperature of -4F to ~122F.

Significant cost savings

Compared to traditional lighting, the TrueSun utilizes less power which then allows you to save up to 50% energy costs every month. And because it uses less power, it has a low operating temperature that helps maintain the perfect climate in your grow tent.

Proprietary LED light spectrum

The TrueSun 2×2’s light spectrum is ideally tuned for indoor growing. It comes with three dedicated switches — Veg, Bloom, and UV, to give your plants the exact lighting they need for each growing phase. Plus, the proprietary lenses distribute the light evenly allowing it to reach all parts of your plant.

Excellent quality

Although it’s small in size, it’s still made with high-quality materials. It comes with a heavy-duty cabinet, server-grade super-cool fands, and strong, sturdy hangers. Plus, it has a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours and more.

Makes Mother Nature proud

The TrueSun is environmentally-friendly because as we mentioned, it used less power, hence, smaller carbon footprint. You wouldn’t need to install a cooling unit because it emits less heat, and fewer cooling fans means less noise pollution. Lastly, it does not contain any traces of mercury, so it’s safe to dispose of when its lifespan ends.

And, here’s what you get when you purchase the BloomBoss TrueSun 2×2 LED Grow Light:

Ways to Cool Your Grow Tent

Does your grow tent heat up easily?

Grow tents allow you to create the perfect indoor environment for your plants. However, there might be times when they are not so “perfect.” One of the problems that may arise is excessive heat. This is especially so if you are located in states with warmer climates. And if you can’t figure out why this is happening, you might have to make some changes in your grow area to help regulate the temperature.  That said, here are a few ways on how to combat too much heat in your grow tents.

Turn on the AC.

Ways to Cool Your Grow Tent

An AC unit is pretty helpful in setting the right temperature, especially during the warmer months. Having an AC will also make the maintenance of the perfect temperature easier. It will also help cool the heat emitted by your grow lights, CO2 generators, pumps, ballasts, and other machines.

Make the switch to LED!

One of the factors that make your indoor environment heat up easily is your lights. Are your using an HPS or fluorescent lighting system? These lights emit a lot of heat and can become a big problem in the summer. That is why more and more indoor growers are making the switch. Getting LED grow lights indeed is a wise investment; aside from saving your plants from getting light burn and wasting your resources, you also get to save on power.

Lessen the number of your plants.

Ways to Cool Your Grow Tent

If you’ve already made the switch but it’s still warm in there, you might want to check on your plants. You are probably growing more than your grow tent can handle. Overcrowding your grow tent naturally will lead to excessive heat. That is why it’s important to do some research on how much plants your tent can accommodate. Of course, one good solution for this is to expand it or buy a bigger grow tent.

Add mulch and seaweed.

Ways to Cool Your Grow Tent

Lastly, adding mulch on top of the soil can help cool your grow tent. This is because it maintains the moisture, allowing the roots to be cooler.  On the other hand, seaweed is a good and affordable fertilizer that helps the soil retain its moisture, keeping it cool. And as an added bonus, seaweed contains vitamins that aid in plant growth and better development of your plants.

The functions of the XL1000 are run conveniently from a handheld remote. You can control one unit and up to a hundred simultaneously from it as well. This is a big relief for large growers, as they would not need to climb a ladder, flip a switch or knob to change the spectrum while the lights are hanging above a wide area of crops.

Internal timing function

The XL1000 boasts an internal timing function in which growers can program all light cycles without the need for separate bulky analog or digital timers. You can turn on all the blues at once, the reds, or the whites, or you can turn them all at once.  Also, these light cycles, including the featured sunrise and sunset modes can be changed using the handy-dandy remote mentioned above.

Ideal 3- and 5-watt diode combination

It has the perfect mix of both 3-watt and 5-watt diodes, creating the perfect amount of light for robust, lush, and large crops.

How to Clean Your Hydroponic System

How to Clean Your Hydroponic System

Make sure that you are growing your vegetables in a squeaky clean environment.

Clean Your Hydroponic System

It is quite apparent why cleanliness is essential in your hydroponic system. You wouldn’t want to be harvesting produce that isn’t clean. Having a dirty and clogged hydroponic system will also affect the health and growth of your plants. If you do not sanitize and sterilize, the chances of your plants getting fungal and disease pathogens rise. Having that said, here are some easy and straightforward cleaning tips for the beginner hydroponic grower.

Set aside the plants. 

Setting Aside the Plants When Cleaning Your Hydroponics

Before you sterilize your hydroponic system, make sure the remove your plants first. Place them in separate pots in the meantime, preferably with the same medium, nutrients, and PH levels. Otherwise, your plants might go into shock when taken out of their current growing environment. Do remove dead leaves or plants if there are any.

Sterilize.

Next is to clean the reservoir and parts of your hydroponic system. You will need a cleaning agent to flush the system to kill all microbial life which may include fungi or bacteria that can cause disease in your crops. There are many cleaning solutions available online or at your local shop. You can go with food grade bleach and food-grade hydrogen peroxide to flush your system. However, if you are hesitant about these solutions, you can go organic and opt to use vinegar. Afterward, rinse the system out with water by circulating filtered water through it for at least two 15-minute cycles to thoroughly wash away the vinegar or cleaning agent.

Replant.

Now that you’ve finished sterilizing, it’s now time to bring your plants back to their home. Make sure to prepare the right grow medium, nutrients, and PH levels like it has been before the cleaning. Regularly check the plants for about a couple days in case some of them show signs of stress.

Sanitize.

Sanitize Your Hydroponics

Once you’re done replanting and activating your system, check your grow area for spills and trash. Look out for dust on the surface of your LED grow lights. Sweep away all the dead plant material you removed from the systems, as well as all the other messes and dirt on the floor. Make sure the surrounding environment is squeaky clean.

As for the cleaning frequency, a monthly routine will do. Although, this still depends on your plant’s growth cycles. Need a new hydroponic system for your urban garden? Check out ChampionLED.com and pick out the system with the perfect features that work for you!
