Grow LightsWhat is a grow light?
If you are going to grow plants inside hydroponically, in soil or other mediums, you will
need a grow light. A grow light mimics the light spectrum from the sun, essential for plant growth.
Plant growth falls into 2 key cycles - vegetative and flowering stages. For vegetative growth blue
spectrum of light are ideal, and for flowering red
spectrums are required.
Easy guide to the right grow light for you:
Metal Halides are ideal for vegetative growth
Son T Plus grow lights are suited for flowering growth
Grolux, Sunmaster and Sunblaster bulbs have both blue and red/orange spectrums and are suited for both stages
- You can grow plants through both stages with either a metal halide or a Son T Plus. The best way to grow is with a different bulb at each stage, a combination of lights, or choose a full spectrum bulb, such as the Sylvania Grolux
