Shedding Some Light On Indoor Gardening
What type of light helps indoor plants grow? Well, of course sunlight is necessary. However you may not always have access to direct sunlight at the appropriate hours. By using systems like our Grow.Bar (that use LED lights during the grow process), you can garden and grow veggies and herbs right inside your own kitchen, any time of year.
With the Grow.Bar we've streamlined the process and turned it into a beautiful interior design addition. The bar can be placed in any environment of your home. It's clean, easy, simple and fun. And it's not just nice to look at, it's an intelligent crafted piece of technology.
LED light technology has made huge advancements over the years and our creators were paying attention. We've blended high performance LED grow lights with nature to create a process that's equal to that of natural sunlight.
Today there are plenty of LED options that grow better than HPS (high pressure sodium) and MH (metal halide) systems. And the LED light technology is constantly evolving as well. Improvements continue to be made and the investment is more than worth the quality of a light that lasts for years. They are the way of the future, especially for indoor gardening.
Our Grow.Bar uses a full spectrum LED light system, often called a full spectrum white LED. There are also blue spectrum and red spectrum LED lights. The blue being best for vegging plants and the red best for flowering. The best LED grow lights across the board usually include both sides of the spectrum. To better understand what the colors mean, review the following:
Our designers are experienced growers and they understand that LED lights are simply the best way to get the healthiest, most vibrant microgreens. The low wattage and zero heat is perfect for growing tiny veggies, herbs and lettuces indoors.
LED lights also consume a much less electricity than traditional grow lights. They are designed to give off the right portions of the light spectrum that a plants needs, so they constantly adjust to save power usage. And we're passionate about issues like sustainability, community and healthy food.
We use LED lights because they are simply the most efficient and economic choice. They "consume less power and produce less heat than other lamp types. They emit wavelengths corresponding to chlorophyll’s production peaks and have an average life span of up to 50,000 hours" (tomatodirt.com).
