                <p><br>• Efficiency – LED emits PAR light, i.e.,
photo synthetically active radiation, which offers greater efficiency and
better results. When these lights are used for growing plants, they
accelerate the growth because the wavelength of light that is emitted
through them is exactly what the plants need. Plants have a specific
requirement of wavelengths for conducting the process of photosynthesis.
The traditional white light bulbs will not provide such wavelengths and
thus hamper the growth. Not just that, the incandescent lamps and
fluorescent lamps will interfere with the growth of plants. Incandescent
lamps produce more than 80% heat when lighted and thus emit heat instead
of light. This kind of heat can be harmful for the plants. LED flowering
grow lights will produce light in the right frequency and wavelength.
Moreover, the spectrum of red and blue light can be balanced for optimal
results.<br><br>• Energy Conservation – These lights can help you
save more than 75 % energy. This quality also helps in reducing the
damage caused to the mother earth. If a light uses less power, it
indirectly helps in saving the environment. The running cost of these
lights is less than half of HID or other types of lighting systems. They
use approximately 100 watts of power. Moreover, they have a long life and
work up to 50 times longer than the traditional white light and lamps.
The lifespan is as long as seven years. They can drastically reduce your
energy consumption and help save our natural resources. Indeed, indoor
LED grow lights are excellent for domestic purposes.<br><br>• Less Heat
– Since these lights produce less heat, they will not scorch your
tender plants and flowers. They are warm to touch and produce very little
heat, and thus enable you to grow different types of flowers and plants
under one roof. These lights are good for plants that have high humidity
requirement. Moreover, since it produces less heat, the plants will not
require frequent watering. Another advantage of this light is that it
will not warm up the room. This means that you can save energy that will
be used by cooling systems for reducing the room temperature. These LED-
planting grow lights operate just a few degrees above the room
temperature.<br><br>• Zero Noise – These lights do not produce any
sounds and are absolutely noise free. Unlike the buzzing sound made by a
fluorescent bulb, these LED lights are calm and quiet. They do not make
any disturbing or annoying sounds.<br><br>• Cycling And On/Off Action
– The possibility of burn out is very less as compared to fluorescent
lamps or HID lamps. The frequent on and off action, which is known as
cycling can shorten the lifespan of a fluorescent or HID lamp. The latter
may take a longer time to restart. However, LED vegetable grow lights are
ideal for objects and applications that require frequent on and off.
Moreover, these lights will light up very quickly within microseconds.

<br>• No External Damage And Deterioration – These lights are shock
resistant and will not burn out abruptly. One of the features of this
light is ‘slow failure'. The light will fail by dimming over a period
of time, and it will not get burned out suddenly. Moreover, it is not
fragile like a fluorescent or HID lamp since it is of solid-state
components. They are not subject to external damage and this is another
reason for its long life. LED growing lights do not contain any toxic
material like mercury, which is commonly used in fluorescent
lamps.<br><br>• Multi-Utilitarian Quality – The low energy
consumption, low maintenance cost, and small size of LED lights have made
them a multi-utilitarian product. It has wide applications and is broadly
used for visual signal application, illumination, indicators and signs,
and non-visual applications like remote controls. It is sometimes used in
sensor systems and is used as movement sensor. An example of movement
sensor is the optical mouse used in computers. The wireless mouse works
on the signal or radiation received through these LED grow lights. Not
just that, it is also used as a light source for machine vision
systems.<br><br>• Wide Variety – There are different types of diodes
like Flashing LEDs, Bi-color LEDs, Tri-color LEDs, RGB LEDs, Alphanumeric
LED, and much more. Each of them has different features and
characteristics.<br><br>There are several advantages of these lights, and
it is important to be careful while buying them. The market is flooded
with poor quality products, which may not have the above-mentioned
advantages. We recommend that you should be wary while buying these
lights. Look for products that come with warranty. Though the initial
cost of buying LED grow light may be high, it should be considered as an
investment. In the long run, this light will have several benefits and
advantages. Not to mention, the savings of natural resources and your
personal resources.<br><br>Facts About LEDs<br><br>Here is some good to
know information about LEDs. Read some facts to know more about the light
emitting diodes.<br><br>? Plant Growth Results – LEDs enable you to
grow several plants, flowers, and vegetables inside your house. Some of
them would include tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, roses, parsley, basil,
cilantro, thyme, rosemary, orchids, African violets, etc. It allows to
grow plants effectively and affordably, since indoor LED grow lights
offer value for money. It also gives the option to choose the red and
blue light according to the requirement. For instance, blue light may be
used to produce studier seedlings and will help in controlling sprawling,
trailing, or aggressive plants.<br><br>? Excellent For Multi-Tier
Gardening – Since these lights are light in weight and small in size,
they can be used for multi-tier gardening. Moreover, they are capable of
delivering targeted high intensity light, hence will suit a multi-tier
gardening system, which is usually built in a confined space.<br><br>?
Increase In Plant Growth Rate – Whether you use indoor or outdoor LED
grow lights, the growth rate of the plants will increase drastically.
This is possible because the photosynthesis process of plants takes place
round the clock. Unlike sunlight, which is available for few hours in a
day, these lights can be turned on throughout the day. This will increase
the growth rate without stressing the plant. The light can be turned on
for 24 hours, and it will not damage the plant. In fact, it will
accelerate its growth.<br><br>? Red LED Light – The red and blue lights
of LED will play an important role. These lights can be balanced for
achieving optimum results while growing plants. Let us look at the
functions and features of red light. It helps the plant in the process of
photosynthesis and when you increase the doses, it further stimulates
growth. You can expect quick flowering, seeding, and fruits. Plants will
first absorb red light for the purpose of photosynthesis. However, a
combination of both red and blue light would be required for the full
growth of a fruit or flower bearing plant.<br><br>? Blue LED Light –
LED grow lights with blue color are useful for vegetable growth. After
absorbing red light, the plant will absorb blue light and this light is
responsible for the health of a plant. Moreover, the blue green lights
have more sunlight energy that is required for the healthy growth of
vegetables.<br><br>? Colors And Wavelength – Red and blue are not the
only colors that an LED will produce. There is a wide spectrum of colors
with different wavelengths. For instance, there is infrared with a
wavelength of more than 760 nm. Apart from red and blue colors, there is
orange, yellow, green, violet, purple, ultraviolet, and white light that
is produced by these LED growing lights. Each of these colors has
different ranges of wavelength that can be adjusted or balanced for best
results.<br><br></p>                <!--INFOLINKS_OFF-->
