A Guide to Marijuana LED Lighting
Successful cultivation requires plenty of knowledge, patience and practice. Here at Greenmans Page, we offer support and advice for growers of all experience levels. This article talks about the complexity of Marijuana LED Lighting.
What are LED lights?
LED lights are the future of growing marijuana. A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source. LEDs are used as indicator lamps in many devices and are increasingly used for lighting up marijuana grow rooms. Appearing as practical electronic components in 1962 early LEDs emitted low-intensity red light, but modern versions are available across the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared wavelengths, with very high brightness. No Noisy ballast to worry about. No light reflector to purchase, no cumbersome shade to deal with. Super long bulb life. The price is low and the quality is higher these days. Super yields are expected and results do not disappoint.
Thermal management would be the most important factor in utilizing LED lighting for growing marijuana. LEDs don’t radiate heat so you need to take it away for optimum results and longevity. Heat sinks and good ventilation reduce the issue. As time goes on, better technology rises to the forefront and heat will not be an issue at all.
LED Color Spectrum
LED colors include amber, green, red and blue. Perfect for pinpointing marijuana growing stages. The lighting spectrum needed during each process of the life of the plant can be changed instantly for less work and less cost.
