LED (Light Emitting Diodes)
LED grow lights are composed of light-emitting diodes, usually in a casing with a heat sink and built-in fans.
LED grow lights do not usually require a separate ballast and can be plugged directly into a standard electrical socket.
LED grow light models can be customized to emit only specific wavelengths of light.
It is known from the study of photo morph o genesis that green, red, far-red and blue
light spectra have an effect on root formation, plant growth, and flowering.
Induction Grow Lights
Magnetic Induction Grow Lights & Plasma Grow Lights:
Do they work? Different Types of Induction Grow Lights
provide your plants the best horticultural lighting for explosive growth and high yields from a single lamp source that is used for the entire vegetative through flowering cycle while saving between 60-70% of the energy consumed by traditional lamp technologies.

Should You Get Induction Grow Lights? Induction Grow Lights For Growing Marijuana
Indoor cannabis growers are always looking for the best way to increase their yields without having to increase
the money spent on the grow. And tuning into the perfect cannabis grow lights for your setup is one of the best ways
to maximize your yields. But which grow light do you choose? How do you deal with heat or ventilation?
What will make it easiest for you to grow? It can be tough to control heat and electricity use with many grow lights,
and it’s tempting to listen to marketers that claim to have all the answers for you. And in recent years
there has been a lot of marketing for magnetic induction & plasma grow lights for growing cannabis.Are induction grow
lights the answer to bigger yields with less heat and electricity?
MH/HPS Grow Lights
As a general rule of thumb, HID grow lights like Metal Halide (MH) and High Pressure Sodium (HPS) are most suitable for relatively larger grows where there is at least 5 feet (1.5 meters) of height in the grow space, though it’s recommended to use a taller space for the best results. This is because MH/HPS lights have to be kept fairly far from the plants.
- Proven to work great – Sometimes called the “Golden Standard” of grow lights for growing cannabis, M.H/H.P.S grow lights have been used by growers for decades and will consistently produce great growth rates, great yields, and great results
- Easy to scale up – works well for growing just a few plants or dozens of plants
- Efficient – When you consider the amount of light produced for the amount of electricity, HID grow lights are some of the most efficient grow lights on the market (more efficient than C.F.L or other fluorescent grow lights) with the possible exception of some of the newer models of LED
