The XL1000 also features sunrise and sunset modes where the lights mimic the sun to make the plants “wake up” and “sleep.” Lastly, the lights are dimmable on three different sets of LEDs, with increments of 1% to 100%. In other words, there are a million different colors and intensities that you can choose from.

Automated

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.

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!

Best Ways to Maximize the Use of LED Grow Lights

Grow lights are quite the investment, so make the most out of them.

LED technology advancement is a blessing to indoor gardening. They are able to give the perfect light to plants for them to photosynthesize properly and to get bigger quality yields. Also, they consume less energy but still gives bright directional lighting. If you want to know how to maximize the use of your growth lights, then you’ve landed on the right article. Here are a few tips on how to take advantage of LED grow lights‘ benefits.

Install multiple units in your grow area.

Doing so allows the light of the units to overlap. This then results in maximum light distribution. Not only are your plants getting the light they need, but you also get to save on electricity bills.

Check the distance of the units from your plants. 

Remember that light generated by light emitting diodes give off almost no heat. That said, the units should be mounted lower than you would with other lighting systems such as fluorescent and HID so your plants would still get the heat they need. Moreover, you also need to make sure that the light is distributed evenly and can penetrate into the canopy.

Make sure to check the temperature of your grow room.

As mentioned, LED lights give off less heat, making them perfect for growers who live in warmer regions. That said, your grow room is going to be much cooler than they are with other lighting systems. If you live in areas where the weather is mostly cold, make sure that the temperature is set to an optimal level for your plants. This is especially so if you rely on the lights for the heat. You will then need another heat source to achieve the perfect growing temperature.

Make sure that you are setting the right spectrum of light.

It is common knowledge for growers that you will need different spectrums of light for the growth phases of your plants. Generally, they need light in the blue and red spectrums. However, leafy greens require all blue light wavelengths to develop well and grow healthy. On the other hand, the flowering plants need red light at the far red range, so the flowering phase gets shorter.

 

Do not overwater your plants.

Last, but not the least, avoid overwatering your plants. Again, because light emitting diodes generate virtually no heat and water does not evaporate, the soil tends to retain water. So make sure that you are giving them just the right amount of water. Note that when compared with outdoor gardens, indoor gardens use 80 percent less water, making LEDs all the more efficient.

5 Things to Avoid When Using LED Grow Lights

Here are the common mistakes indoor growers make with LED lights.

5 Things to Avoid When Using LED Growth Lights

If you’re a first-time grower, making mistakes when growing is unavoidable. Plus, errors are part of the learning process. However, to save you time and money, it’s best to know which ones to do and which ones not to do. The usage of LED lights, in particular, also have some fair share of do’s and don’ts. And with that said, here are some of the common mistakes to avoid to grow healthy plants.

Placing the lights too near or too far

Your plants will suffer from too much heat if your LED grow lights are placed too near. Some of the signs to check is when the outside of the leaves start to turn brown and when they start curling up. If the lights are placed too far, the plants won’t be getting the proper light they need. Most growers would say that the recommended distance from lights to plants are about 12 to 18 inches.

Not adjusting the lights

When your plants grow, they, of course, grow taller. Some growers, believe it or not, forget about this. That said, keep in mind to adjust the height of your lights, keeping them at the recommended distance. Otherwise, you’ll get burnt leaves and efforts go down the drain. Expert growers recommend rotating your plants from time to time to avoid the leaves from leaning towards the light.

Insufficient light for the volume of your plants

Always consider the number of plants you are growing and the amount of LED wattage that you’ll need for them. You have to make sure that you have sufficient lighting. Otherwise, proper photosynthesis will not happen and will result in sad, unhealthy plants. Note that the average LED grow light emits about 32 watts to cover 1 square foot for flowering. So if you have four plants in a 4 x 4 grow space, the recommended LED wattage is 128.

Choosing the wrong spectrum

As mentioned, plants need sufficient lighting for proper photosynthesis to occur. With that said, you have to select the correct setting for each stage of your plant’s growth. Vegetative stage requires more light from the cool blue spectrum, while the flowering stage needs more of the warm red spectrum. Interchanging the two will hinder the plant’s development.

Not cleaning and maintaining your LED lights.

LED growth lights as you know are not cheap and are a huge investment. That said, they need to be taken care of properly and regularly maintained. Clean the lights correctly to save you the hassle of damaging them. Expert growers also recommend using a power stabilizer to equalize the incoming voltage, protecting the LEDs’ chips.

How to Choose LED Grow Lights

Here are things you should consider when buying a LED lighting system for your indoor grow space.

K5 Series XL750 Indoor Growth Light from Champion LED

We all know the LED lights are the best type of lights for indoor growing. But not all LEDs are the same, and there’s a wide range of models available in the market. You should be able to pick ones that are perfect for your grow space. Otherwise, you won’t be getting the results you are hoping for. Another thing is to be on the lookout for low quality or “fake” LEDs so you won’t be wasting an investment.

If you’re ready to go shopping for LED grow lights, here’s a checklist that might help you pick the lights for your needs.

Check for the materials used and the brand.

The materials used to make the LED lights should be high-quality. High-quality materials make these lights last up to 10 years. Check if they are US-made and abide by the highest industry standards. As for the brand, you have to pick one that is used by most growers and have a good reputation in the market. Pick brands that have spent time on research and development for innovating their products.

What plants are you growing?

The lights you are about to get should be suitable for the kind of plants you are growing. Generally, all types of LED lights, to some extent, would do, but some units are made for specific plant needs. This is in particular with the growth stages of the plant. There are some made specifically for the vegetative stage, and there are also units created for both vegetative and flowering stage. Cannabis is a plant that needs both, so if you are a medical marijuana grower go with lights that have an optimal spectrum of lights for both growth stages.

How big is your grow area?

One important factor to consider is the size of your grow space. This determines the number of units you’ll need, as well as the size. Measure the exact size of the area then compare to the lighting area size of the units you want to but. Generally, you’ll need 32 watts per square foot for plants that need high light, while plants that need low light need about 11 and 18 watts per square foot.

Check if the unit can deliver a full spectrum of lights.

Photosynthesis requires different wavelengths of light, meaning it needs a full spectrum of lights. To be more specific, your plants need light in the blue and red spectrums, as well as ultraviolet and infrared. Most LED lights have many individual spectra, allowing plants to photosynthesize perfectly. However, do note that some units only have limited spectra and are only used for a certain growth stage.

Check for warranty and return policy.

Always check if the units have a warranty and a return policy. This is helpful in cases when a grower decides that they are not happy with the product, or have bought the wrong kind of unit. Most known brands provide this too, and if you see a unit that doesn’t have these, they are most probably made of substandard quality materials or are fake LED lights.

How to Clean LED Grow Lights

Cleaning your lights is as easy as a piece of cake.

Whether you are a seasoned or a year-round grower, cleaning and maintaining your LED grow lights is a must. If you are the former, cleaning them is only needed before usage. If you are the latter, it’s best to have a bi-monthly or quarterly routine. Doing so will help keep your lights working at maximum efficiency and will allow you to see what needs to be replaced or fixed. Without further ado, here are two ways on how to clean your lights.

Although LED lights do not attract that many bugs compared to a regular incandescent light, it can still attract a few of them. That said, your grow lights are not safe from insects, as well as dust and other particles. All you need an air duster or canned air to remove them. This product allows you to remove all the particles without wetting the lights or going through the hassle of disassembling them. Do remember to turn off and unplug before you start spraying away.

Glass cleaner

How to Clean LED Growth Lights | Champion LED

Standard glass cleaners are perfect for cleaning the glass under the LED lights. Spray some the glass cleaner into a soft lint-free cloth and gently wipe the surface. Carefully rub all the dirt away, but do not leave the cleaner on longer than three minutes. Allow it to dry before plugging it back in. As for the light itself, it’s also best to avoid using cleaners with chloroethylene or acetone because these products will cause the LEDs to fade.

Maintenance

Cleaning your LED lights is uncomplicated, right? It’s the same with maintaining it. Here are a few things to remember:

  • Regularly check for dust particles and bugs.
  • Avoid exposing the lights to water as it may drip on the inside. Even wiping with a damp cloth can lead to leakage.
  • Do not use cleaners with harmful chemicals.
  • Do not hang decors or any tools in the lamp as it may exceed the carrying capacity.
  • Check the bolts and screws. If loose, tighten immediately to avoid the lights from falling off the ceiling.
  • Always turn off and unplug before cleaning to prevent electrocution.

Doing all these will further extend the long life of your grow lights.
