LED grow lights have come a long way in recent years. Thus indoor medicinal plant growing is now easier than ever. With the right light or fixture, you can achieve the optimal yield, whether in the dead of winter or during the bright summer months. These grow lights are uniquely designed to stimulate photosynthesis and offer the correct color spectrum for plant growth and bud production. In essence, high-quality grow lights can effectively substitute natural light.
Different grow light varieties exist, and each offers its specific characteristics and strengths. When you make the decision to invest in your indoor grow, you'll definitely want to learn about the best LED grow lights.
The best LED grow lights have a few things in common - a uniform spectrum, efficiency, high-power, and reliability/durability.
The best LED grow lights have a uniform spectrum, so if you have the type of plants under your light, they all get the same spectrum.
Its important to reiterate that the best spectrum consists of not just red and blue light, but also infrared (IR) and Ultraviolet (UV).
Full spectrum LEDs allow you to grow from seed to harvest with the same light, as opposed to having to replace bulbs or use different grow lights for veg/flower.
The more light your LED actually gives off, the bigger yields you’ll get (for the most part). So, the best LED grow lights need to be incredibly powerful.
In general, LED grow lights are very efficient. But, the best LED grow lights tend to also be the most efficient. Operating at a high level, producing high power, and maintaining a low cost to run is very important.
Given the cost of LED grow lights, they need to be seen as an investment. Obviously, your investment needs to last you a long time for it to show a return.
Therefore, the best LED grow lights are reliable and durable, standing the test of time.
All of the lights we will be listing are from the most reputable brands and include some sort of warranty. This will give you peace of mind when you purchase, knowing you are protected.
The XT 1000W CO2 Pro LED is built using high quality and durable PHOTONTEK drivers and top bin LEDs from Osram and Lumileds Philips generating an optimized full-spectrum light source ideal for veg and flowering stages.
The XT 1000W CO2 Pro LED is designed with both vegetative and flowering growth periods in mind and the LED may be dimmed, allowing you to adjust PPFD levels produced without losing efficiency.
Creating better light for growers
Only the highest-grade materials and components are used in PHOTONTEK’s LED fixtures. Delivering safe, dependable light PHOTONTEK fixtures have industry leading performance. By perfectly balancing a high quality, full spectrum light with highest intensity PPFD delivered through a multi-bar, Linear design. PHOTONTEK Creates the ultimate ceiling of light for the entire plant growth cycle, making these LEDs the smartest option for a higher and faster return on investment.
Stunning features with high quality components
Producing extremely high levels of PPF output of 2925 µmol/s and a Photon Efficacy (fixture efficiency) of 2.9 µmol/J, XT 1000W CO2 Pro LED creates a homogeneous light spread at close distance from the crop canopy, resulting in outstanding results when used in 5’x5’ coverage indoor grow areas with Supplemental CO2 use.
The use of CO2 with this unit is not imperative, but if you choose to run it without it, then we recommend a longer canopy distance to the fixture, ensuring the optimal PPFD levels recommended to the grow stage. Utilizing this last method the expected coverage area gets to 6’x6’ but with lower levels of PPFD intensity concentration.
Supplementation use of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in your controlled environment can significantly improve the yield of your crop if used correctly. A good rule is that once you exceed 1000 µmol/s/m2 PPFD levels, you should be 1:1 with CO2 PPM – up to 1500. So at max PPFD = 1500 µmol/s/m2, CO2 would be 1500 PPM (a little lower, 1400 PPM may be the safest to start).
When compared to regular similar wattage High Pressure Sodium solutions the XT 1000W CO2 Pro LED can achieve 30-40% less HVAC capacity and increased yields of up to 30-60%.
We hope this top 3 list of the best LED grow lights can help give you the information you need to finally make that purchase for a new grow light. With so many options on the market today, it can get overwhelming when making such an important purchase. Please use this list as guide to get you started in the right direction for the purchase of your new Led grow light for your home, or commercial grow.
