How LED Light Colour Influences Plant Growth

The crop production systems do not disregard important factors that influence plant development: temperature, humidity, light, carbon dioxide, water and nutrients. All these blend to create the ideal environment for a plant to grow and reproduce as well as they influence size, seeds, plant health and so on. Each plant will progress in its own manner, depending on the environment. Since a long time already biologists are studying the factors that influence vegetation’s evolution. Light is a very important factor and researchers were able to determine exactly which wavelengths are the ones plants need for their growth. Some colours in light rays are essential for good plant evolution:

Blue light: plants react to the intensity of blue light. Lessening the blue light will cause poor growth – the strength of the radiation in any other part of the spectrum is not as important as the intensity of the blue, which shapes height and quality.

Red (660 nm) and infrared (730 nm) (also known as IR or far red) light: Intensifying the total of IR in relation with 660 nm red makes plants grow tall and thin. On the other hand if red is increased while IR diminished, plants will be short but thick. Plant reactions are not linear with the red/far red ratio and they can also vary in their response to red and far red light.

Ultraviolet light (UV): While overexposure is dangerous, small amounts of UV light can be beneficial for the flora. In many cases UV light is a very important cause for colours, taste and aroma. But UV-C and UV-B are believed to stop plant spread and this is why they have to be removed from the light under which plants are developed in green houses by UV stabilisers or glass. Removal of the UV up to 400nm is might be effective also in case of virus carrier insects (as insects see partly in UV).

LED grow lights contain special LEDs in order to closely mimic the perfect conditions., it's even possible to grow plants in the basement —just don’t forget the water. Order yours today and start growing!

 

  • LED grow lights save 80% to 90% in energy consumption compared to fluorescent tubes, HPS or MHS
  • 95% lights of LEDs can be absorbed by plants, but only 10% by HPS or MHS
  • Reduce grow room temperature but 15 degrees compare to HPS or MHS
  • high power LED estimate to last 50,000 hours.
  • High power LED has the light decay about 5%,
  • Nearly no maintaining.
  • Wide angle projection insures uniform leaf coverage.
