Hydroponic Growing With LED Grow Lights

Even though researchers and horticulture enthusiasts are aware of the disadvantages of regular grow lights, they continue to use them. This is because, until recently, hydroponic growing with LED grow lights was not as effective or efficient. That being said, the technology used has improved greatly and those who manufacture these systems have done their best to enhance the quality of the bulbs.

Hydroponics allows the growth and development of plants with the help of a certain mixture of nutrients and minerals and the need for soil is eliminated. When LED grow lights are added to the picture, they further enhance the growth of certain plants that otherwise could not grow naturally during that particular season. It goes without saying that this benefits those who enjoy growing all kinds of plants, vegetables and flowers through the year.

LED grow lights have entered the market and will outweigh the demand for regular grow lights within a short period of time. This is because they are extremely economical and in today’s day and time, what more can one ask for? They make use of very little electricity but this does not mean that they are unable to produce a sizeable amount of heat. On the contrary, they can produce more heat than say, HDS grow lights but with the help of minimal energy. Needless to say, one’s electricity bills are reduced and in turn, the environment does not have to suffer.

Different bulbs have different life spans after which they burn out and need to be replaced. This means that one has to keep spending money after regular intervals of time.

Common grow lights like HDS have a life span of about 20,000 hours while MH lights burn out after 10,000 hours. This may seem impressive to you before you find out that LED grow lights will die out only after 100,000 hours. Another great advantage is that LED grow lights do not need to be attached to cooling systems because since they do not emit that much heat, they stay cool no matter how long they have been glowing.

A particular feature of such lights allows users to change their position every now and then to allow the growth of different kinds of vegetables or plants side by side.

This makes hydroponic growing with LED grow lights quite successful and allows people to produce vegetables like lettuce and radish along with certain herbs as and when they feel the need. However, since the ratio of nutrients to minerals should not be disturbed, it becomes necessary to check the solution on a regular basis. The growth pattern of the plants should be noted down and if an irregularity is noticed, action should be taken immediately. One last thing you should keep in mind is that the distance between the light and the plant should not exceed the amount that is suggested in the instruction manual. If you are sure to maintain the plants properly and take good care of the LED grow lights, there is no way that you will not see results within a short period of time.
