It is important to use grow lights for certain kind of plants, if you want to them to grow well. If this seems a little new to you, fret not, as we will go through all the factors necessary to choose a suitable Grow Light.
The Right Intensity
Just like different plants need different light color, they also need different wattage. For example, African violets and begonias need to be about 10 to 12 inches from the light, and ivy about 36 inches. On the other hand, gardenias and citrus and some other plants need much higher light intensity to produce fruit or flower. Erligpowht 45W LED Red Blue Hanging Light for Indoor Plant has the strength of the 45W and it is suitable for flowers, seaweed, bananas, vegetables, and almost all other plants.
The Right Color
The sun gives the plant the whole spectrum of light, which means all colors of the rainbows. So, it is important to choose the light that suits the plant you are intending to plant. The Erligpowht light has red and blue lights and that means you won’t be able to grow some of the plants under it. On the other hand, most of the plants require these two colors, so you don’t have to worry.
The Right Duration
Just like all living creatures, all types of plants have to have a rest from the light. In the dark they respirate, and that helps them grow. It is important to balance the light and dark in the life of a plant, and the botanists divided it into three categories: long-day, short-day and day-neutral. Chrysanthemums, kalanchoe need less than 12 hours of light per day, while long-day plants such as garden flowers need at least 14 to 18 hours of light every day. In the end, geraniums and coleus are good with 8 to 12 hours of light every day, during all of the years. Erligpowht has a life of 50,000 hours, which mean more than 2 years of proper working.
