There are only a few essentials that plant need in order to survive, and light is one of it. It serves as a basic need for the plant to mature and develop into a good quality marijuana product. Some plant owners prefer growing marijuana plants indoors, in the absence of a natural daylight. In doing so marijuana plant owners use LED lights as an alternative for the lack of natural light. LED or the Light Emitting Diode, is a light technology that passes through a semi conductor, without burning any essential filament in it. LED is known for its long life span that can function for 50,000 hours, and saves a big percentage from the electricity bill. This is a technology that’s surely environment friendly. This also doesn’t emit heat radiation, which gives a great benefit to use it in growing marijuana plants.
LED grow light is the newest technology when it comes in growing weed plants indoors. This mixture of red and blue lights emits little energy, where its bulb won’t get hot inside the grow room. The blue light in the LED bulb is responsible for making the plant become greener and catapults the stimulation of its growth. The red bulb on the other hand, is responsible for its flowering and budding. Upon purchasing the LED grow lights, the consumer also has the chance to set the ration of the blue and the red light, depending on the plant, to have an effective growth and efficacy of the product. The use of the light is safe enough to use in close proximity to the plants, without getting its chance to burn the plants. The heat emitted is mild enough and perfect in providing the right amount of heat the marijuana plant needs for development. It is very effective especially from the plant’s vegetative stage up to it budding period. The use of these special growing lights will help the marijuana plant grow up in the right time and pace, in its full potential and quality. Comparing to the previous lighting techniques, the use of LED requires more time and energy to generate heat for he grow room of the marijuana plants.

LED growing lights are also cheaper, but there are many other commercial lights that do not possess the characteristics of a good quality LED light. Due to the high demand of LED light, consumers opt for just about any kind of the bulb without doubting its authenticity, and end up with substandard qualities. So consumers should always use their good sense of observation and judgment before purchasing LED grow lights. With the rise of technology, there are now varieties and versions of LED grow light, consumers should always take into consideration the spectrum and light intensity of the unit.
Although numerous speculations have emerged with the use of LED grow lights, most of the supporters guarantee a bright future for cultivating marijuana indoors. It is believed that it brought changes not only on the techniques, but also revamped economic costs. Saving the money and energy are the ultimate goals upon using LED products.
