Some Secrets Behind the Performance of Full-spectrum LED Grow lights

Posted on Aug 31 , 2020

Full-spectrum LED lights are manufactured to deliver the entire spectrum of light under their footprint due to a variable range of 380 nm to 800 nm. Generally, sunlight is the best source of light that meets plants' needs of varying densities. When there are certain limitations with the sunlight like having smaller day-length then the light supplementation is provided with the artificial source. Artificial grow lights could never replace sunlight but, they have several added advantages, and typical of those include getting a light source throughout different growth stages of plants. Since plants are quite selective for utilizing different sources of light to successfully carry out the process of photosynthesis to make food and fix other physiological activities, it is possible to support these processes with the provision of artificial grow lights, especially with full-spectrum LED lights.

The plants can absorb much-needed light, they absorb minimum light from 550 nm wavelength, and it estimates that this absorption is not more than 3% due to the green color of the leaves while the rest of the light reflects in the source. Besides its low absorption, the green wavelength helps fix Chlorophyll A and B at this stage. That’s why one can’t ignore the importance of green wavelength if a successful growth is needed indoor. Similarly, there is no absorption beyond 750 nm.

LED light manufacturers who only focus on the importance and provide the wavelength within these limits often mislead customers due to their incapacities to incorporate the wavelengths that plants need for successful growth and development.

On the other hand, full-spectrum LED lights are capable of addressing this issue with the bandwidth that is distributed across the spectrum and ensures a uniform distribution of photons from the seedling to growth, vegetative development, and finally to flowering stages of the plant. The maturity and ripening of fruit also depend on the same wavelength, and red light plays a vital role in the final maturity stages. Another important induction is the use of white light between the blue and red light spectrum. Its combination with blue light ensures progress in the development of soluble sugar level in fruits decreasing the excessive nitrate level. There are also shreds of evidence about this combination that it helps in increasing shoot to root ratio, enhances flavor and crispiness of the product giving them a decent shape for an apparent look. Any full-spectrum LED lights that mix white light for using it in combination with blue and red enhance final production up to 10% or more.

Then the question arises on how to take full benefits from the LED grow lights? 

Simply by exposing your plants with what they need for growth and development through their life. The combination lies in exposing them to blue, red, green, and white light. Blue and white combinations will help their vegetative growth and mixing white with red would trigger and boost flowering leading to fruit maturity. The combining effect of blue, white, and red helps in the growth of the strong seedling, abundant vegetative, and excessive flowering guaranteeing a sure increase in production. We solve this issue with 12 band spectrum(Full-spectrum) and highest PAR that draw minimum power with excellent heat sinks to get maximum yield outputs as well in all our recent editions at VANQ LED.

Full-spectrum LED Lights for Cannabis:


Since there is no harm to the human eye for using LED grow lights indoor, they are rapidly becoming part of indoor grow rooms and greenhouses for growing cannabis across the world. Anything that could harm plants is the heat if the dissipation techniques are not followed properly. Heat often burns plants foliage especially cannabis love to grow indoor where plenty of white light is available along with blue and green combination throughout its growth and development. Our GLMX720 is the type of light that supports cannabis growth and development supported by all of the features mentioned above for the superior and crispier taste and higher yield productions. It contains a tailor-made spectrum for growing cannabis and high nutritive vegetables in a grow room where they receive a balanced spectral ratio to exhibit their total potential. Since you know that Cannabis is a light lover plant that grows wild under hot, humid conditions throughout China and Pakistan, we know how to induce additional lights that help to grow cannabis in your environment. Moreover, our lights don't put an additional burden on you and help you keep electricity bills in control. We always focus on producing quality full-spectrum LED lights and respect your right to claim warranties. Another best choice for cannabis growers is our GLIC650D, Wireless Control COB LED Grow Light, and giving excellent results for the commercial production of cannabis whereas, plant scientists consider it as the first choice for cannabis research.
