In recent years, LED lights have become more and more important for the indoor growth of our favorite plants. We discussed the various success factors of in-house production before. Here is a short summary: Indoor growth gives you the opportunity to influence all environmental factors.
HPS grow light (high pressure sodium lamps) have been a confident leader in the market for lighting systems for cannabis for decades, while other technologies, although they exist, are unlikely to shake their position. In this article, we will take a close look at the differences between the different types of lamps and try to form an opinion on what to expect from them.
Growing cannabis under LED lights is becoming more and more common, and LED light technology for cannabis continues to develop rapidly. Part of the reason is that, especially in the US/Canada, cannabis is grown in large numbers under LED lights. Hobby growers began to profit more and more, because it became easier to grow under LEDs.
Since the advent of the LED growth lamp, the relationship between LED and HPS and the question of which “better” has always existed. Since then, LED grow lights must have been far away, but can they compete with HPS grow lights for wattage? And where do other types of HID grow lights come from?
In meeting the growing demand for food in the future, a relatively closed production system such as the greenhouse will play an important role. In recent years, the lack of sunlight in greenhouses has attracted more and more attention.
If growers, gardeners or just amateur growers do not have the opportunity to grow their favorite flowers or plants in the outdoor garden, or do not have time to find a place suitable for outdoor growth, then there is another way to be relatively easy and stay at home.
