Looking for an LED Grow Light? Having the right grow lights in your set up can be one of the most crucial things you make sure of. Plants can grow just fine when you have all of the right nutrients going to them, have all of the most up to date hydroponic technology delivering them, and an airflow system that makes sure they are always cool and filled with oxygen, but without light none of that matters too much, or at all in fact. That is why LED grow lights are so important.

However, finding the best LED grow lights is not that simple.

LED Grow Light

If you are new to indoor gardening or a seasoned pro, making the choice to go with LED grow lights can provide many rewards. Good planning and research will assure you of a good result from the start. Choose a good supplier and compare products carefully. Consider purchasing a good LED growing book that you can refer to as you compare your options. This will keep you from overlooking critacle details that may not stand out on a suppliers description.

You want to use advanced LED designs with optimized PAR light spectrums to provide your plants with the exact LED grow lighting that they require for optimum vigor. LED lighting provides for tremendous growth, while providing incredible energy saving benefits versus other types of grow lights.

LED Grow Lights can be found in many sizes, wattages and spectrums. LED growlights are suitable for all types of indoor growing.

It can be difficult to decide which LED grow light is right for your application. You will want to get high performance lights from a company that will back up the product with excellent support. Most companies have several different products to choose from. Carefully compare your choices online to find the best LED Grow Light at the lowest price.

    This is a great illustration of the difference in Par outputs between LED
    and HID lights. The trouble is most HID manufacturers don’t list the PAR
    outputs and confuse most growers with Lumens, which really isn’t important.
    Great job.

    HPS have orange spectrum and led have blue and red.MH have white or yellow

    0:41 haha hey why was the guy on the left lip syncing with the chinese
    dude?? lol

    there seems to be a debate on the important wavelengths that are beneficial
    to growth. as I shop around for led lights I compare the total spectrum to
    the eye hortilux mh and hps. I was wondering what the in between
    wavelengths are reading with your fancy spectral radiation meter. also is
    the 330 watts actual power draw as led lights will not pull there full
    wattage? I would love to switch.

    hell at the price of this thing I can buy a blackstar 900w LED light. and
    still save cash!!

  6. Andreas Mathiassen says:

    LED vs HPS, LED wins, well that means that the eyes will be destroyed even
    more in the use of LED. than with Hps lamps.. but sure, you get a
    substantial long lasted life spand of your light fixture, and you are going
    to save some money on your electrical bill.. but.. still there exist
    specially made glasses for protection of your eyes, if you use HPS.. and
    that is not the case with LED..

    you send to every country?

    thanks ill try one !!:)

    very interesting. thanks a lot guys!! keep it up

  10. TheGrowisland says:

    any idea on a specific date when something new will be coming, or hints,
    before 2012?

  11. StuffFromMe says:

    this is great, what hardware/software is this??

  12. BattleDonkey says:

    leafy greens indeed

  13. Terra Suspex says:

    Great video guys, LED is definatly the future and to have someone share
    scientific data on the light spectrum is brilliant, thank you very much.

  14. Kev Bogan says:

    Ya looks pretty good, my rhinogrow works sweet. I believe that LEDs are the

    What’s the cost??

  16. Charlie Tuna says:

    this video was awesome.ive grown from led’s , cfl’s, halide and hps.i cant
    pick just one light start to finish.i like my fluoro’s for clones and seed
    starting. but once i get a little age i like veging under a mix of led’s
    and halide.once my plants get a little bushier i put some secondary
    fluoro’s under the canapy.when i switch to veg i switch out my led’s for my
    custom flowering led’s(homemade 4 my preference)then i also switch from
    halide to hps.i get great results from what im doing.

  17. Rotorzilla says:

    as a basil and lettuce grower, I would be more intereted in pumping up the
    blue and bringing down the red. as the red can cuase the plants to flower
    and change taste of the product. How about a building a custom ES 330 but
    swap the blue and red LEDs AKA ( ES330 Grow )

  18. Carl Young says:

    Hi there,i’m thinking of switching over to a 330 LED light from a 400w HPS.
    Before and if i do,can you tell me the actual life span of the 330 LED
    before it starts to degrade in output. Thanks,Carlos. 🙂

  19. borneoization says:

    this is pretty interesting that you test with a spectrometer. would you
    guys be able to test a product by Fero LED, preferably the v2 version?

  20. Mark Webcraft says:

    LEDs do provide plants with the correct light color, and they do this very
    well, probably better than hps or metal halide. This is great but only half
    of what a plant needs… the other half being light intensity, LEDs cannot
    provide enough intensity to even get close to comparing LEDs to HIDs,
    ‘nough said, im not switching

  21. amphotep says:

    7:1:1/8:1/7:2 630NM 460NM 610NM are these ideal LED configuration for a
    plentiful harvest?

  22. Jay Eff says:

    Are these “MADE in the USA,” or are they “ASSEMBLED?”

    led no works so good,,,,old way better in future wil get beter with
    led,,,tillnow in the entherlands ,,,still every body grow with old

  24. J Brody says:

    I’m a little skeptical about your measurement technique. I’ve use the Ocean
    Optics system you are using to measure and I’ve found that the fiber probe
    is very very sensitive to angle. For your LED light you have the fiber
    pointing directly at the source, for the HID the fiber is not pointing
    directly at the source. Also, what did you use to calibrate your system?

    Hallo! Great Video! Please tell me the name of this instrument you used to
    measure umol. Grts.

  27. Vic H says:

    Great info. But I looked on Amazon and they want over $3K for it. What
    would you use for a small home gardener??
