LED Grow Lights

LEDs were first examined as potential light sources for plant photosynthesis and growth in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Initially, only red LEDs were sufficiently bright and when blue light was included, it was provided with fluorescence tubes. LED technology has developed rapidly since then, they have become brighter and more colours have become available. These developments have been tracked by horticultural scientists and, especially since commercial LED systems have become available in the last couple of years, a growing range of applications for LEDs in horticulture has been used.

Why choose LED Grow Lights?
LED lighting is fundamentally different from conventional light sources such as incandescent, fluorescent, and gas-discharge lamps. An LED uses no mercury, no lead, no gas or filament, it has no fragile glass bulb, and it has no failure-prone moving parts. LED sources are super green! They do not contain mercury (as do CFLs) or lead (as do incandescent lamps). LED lighting is more efficient, durable, versatile and longer lasting than incandescent lighting. In a well-designed product; LEDs are basically cool to the touch and emit visible light as specific colors. This spectrum of color is what makes LEDs useful to encourage photosynthesis.
