If you've been considering investing in some LED grow lighting, you may have wondered why some grow lights give off a pink or purple light and some have a more natural white light to them. What is the difference? Which one will offer the best results? Here are 3 reasons we think that a balanced-spectrum white light might serve you better.
Your plants will thank you! It was originally thought that plants only needed the blue and red light to thrive. In reality, a balanced spectrum using all wavelengths presenting visually as a white light will provide your plant with much better support throughout all stages of its growth cycle.
It will not break the bank. LEDs have come a long way since their invention in the early 1960s. What was once a highly priced, limited availability product, is now changing. LED is now the most popular type of grow lighting on the market. With all the advancements we have made with LED lighting, there is no longer a need to sacrifice your plants to the Grow Gods, to save some money.
You need to be able to live in your home too! Though it may not bother some people, there are plenty of people who are sensitive to light frequency, and how grow lights change the look of their homes.
