More and more people are growing marijuana indoors at home for certain reasons. Most of them aren’t interested in home growing as a side income. They just want to grow weed for themselves and friends. Thinking long-term, growing at home is cheaper than buying from a dealer. The first harvest usually covers all the equipment expenses, awarding with aromatic and tasty buds. You can choose to grow your favorite marijuana strains and have the complete control over their growing and the quality.
But let’s be honest, it’s not always easy to choose equipment. The most difficult part of the whole ordeal, especially, for beginner growers is choosing the best lights for indoor growing. Before making the final decision, pay attention to the following parameters.
• How many watts do you need per square foot of grow space?
• What temperature is it going to be in the grow tent?
• How the lights are going to affect the plants?
• What the electricity bill is going to be like and how to save money on the electricity?
• Which grow lights give the highest yields?
All of these questions were taken into account before the development of ZEDEN series LED grow lights.
LED grow lights from ZEDEN series are available in four light intensities (wattages) –
and 1200w – to satisfy the needs and ambitions of every home grower.
Many daily stoners become home growers because they want to save money on their hobby. In such cases, it’s not wise to make big investments in equipment. But ZEDEN series LED grow lights with their affordable price are great for such occasions. We are confident that the cost of any LED grow light from ZEDEN series will pay off after the first harvest.
Let’s take a closer look at the basic parameters of these LED grow lights.
LED Grow Lights Power
LED technology has made a significant breakthrough in the grow light market due to the high light intensity and low energy consumption.
Many studies on indoor grow lights have proved that the best wattage for a LED chip is 3 watts. Even though 1-watt LED chips release the least amount of heat, also being the most efficient, stable, and long-lasting option, they might not have the power required to illuminate the whole depth of the plant canopy.
According to LED companies and experienced growers, 3-watt LED chips embody the right balance between cost, size, and generating enough heat. Besides, there are 5-watt LED chips and higher available. Although those are the most intense, they are also the least efficient and wouldn’t be as long lasting as 1-watt LED chips.
The LED chip used in ZEDEN LED grow lights has 3 watts and, thus, it has established itself as a very reliable friend to a grower.
Moreover, with a power consumption of 100 watts from LED grow lights we get as much light intensity as high pressure sodium (HPS) grow lights consuming 300 watts would give. In comparison with HPS grow lights, using LED grow lights growers can reduce their electricity bills by 35%.
Color Spectrum of LED Grow Lights
Marijuana is a fairly modest plant, thus, it can grow under the blue or the red spectrum of light and you will get a harvest. The blue spectrum is more appropriate for vegetative stage, while the red is more suitable for flowering. Of course, the ideal light is natural.
The combination of different diodes is the most appropriate for growing marijuana at home. Diodes with different temperatures and wavelengths can provide plants with flowers throughout the whole life cycle.
Below you can see the diode ratio for the ZEDEN series 300w LED grow light. Diodes of the red, blue, white, and yellow spectrum are used in these LED grow lights.
To get the highest yields possible, every ray of light is crucial. For example, the blue spectrum forms the foliage that stores the glucose which is necessary for the creation of your favorite cannabinoid – THC. But the red spectrum is responsible for the size and density of buds.
If you’re satisfied with an idea of getting a mediocre harvest, you might as well go and purchase your lights at a hardware store. But, if you’re someone who wants to get the most out of the closet and enjoy crispy buds with lots of tasty THC crystals, then you will need to spare more than 100 bucks on grow lights.
Grow Tent Temperature
Our experience shows that the temperature in the grow tent 60x60x100 during the operation of a 300w grow light changes by +5 °C (+10 °F), with ventilation 70m3/min. And that is an unbelievably excellent result. During the last decade, for a grower that used HPS this would have been almost a science fiction. Such a slight change in temperature is possible due to the two powerful fans that constantly cool the diode panel.
Spider mites and other pests love dry environment. Do not let the temperature in your grow tent rise above 30 °C (85 °F). Also, cannabis grows better in a humid temperature. The less the grow light heats the grow space, the better yields for you and fewer worries.
ZEDEN Grow Lights Ergonomics
The developers of these grow lights clearly didn’t want to reinvent the bicycle and used the most common design in the market. The rectangle is ideal for fastening. Because the shape of the grow light panel often corresponds to the shape of the tent, it optimizes the lighting. The white emulsion paint perfectly reflects the light from the walls of the grow tent back to the plants. Convenient fasteners make it easy to fasten the grow light to a standard tent roof in 5 minutes.
