LED lamps have revolutionized the world of indoor cannabis cultivation, offering many advantages over traditional HID lamps (MH, CMH and HPS).
This article aims to provide an in-depth explanation of what LED lamps are, why they have created a revolution in indoor cannabis cultivation, the advantages over HID lamps and an overview of prices based on size and correct wattage for the space. cultivation.
What are LED Lamps:
LED (Light Emitting Diode) lamps are electronic devices that emit light when an electric current passes through them. These lamps were introduced to the indoor cannabis growing market as an alternative to traditional HID lamps.
LEDs use a more energy efficient technology and are capable of producing a light spectrum suitable for plant cultivation.
5 Advantages of LED Growlamp over HID Growlamps (HPS, MH & CMH):
LED lamps offer several advantages over HID lamps (MH, CMH and HPS):
- Energy Efficiency: LED lamps are much more energy efficient than HID lamps, allowing for significant energy savings and lower running costs.
- Customizable Light Spectrum: LED lamps allow you to adjust the light spectrum to suit different stages of plant growth, providing the ideal light for optimal growth and production of cannabinoids and terpenes.
- Less Heat Emissions: LED grow lights emit less heat than HID grow lights, reducing the need for additional cooling systems and helping to maintain a stable temperature in the grow room.
- Longer Life: LED lamps have a longer average life than HID lamps, reducing the need for frequent replacement and related costs.
- Greater Control of Light Intensity: LED lamps allow precise control of light intensity, allowing it to be adapted to the specific needs of cannabis plants.
Prices of LED Lamps Based on Size and Correct Wattage:
Prices for LED lamps can vary based on size, brand and wattage. In general, for an average size of indoor cultivation, LED lamps can have an average price ranging from €100 to €500. However, it is important to consider that energy efficiency, the quality of the LEDs and the light coverage offered will influence the final price.
To determine the correct power to apply to your grow space, you need to consider the size of the area. For example, a 150W LED grow light may be suitable for a 60x60cm indoor grow space. It is important to consult the manufacturer’s specifications and consider the specific needs of the cannabis plants during the different stages of growth.
LED lamps have revolutionized indoor cannabis cultivation thanks to their energy efficiency, customization of the light spectrum, longer life, reduced heat emissions and control of light intensity. Compared to HID lamps, they offer many advantages that improve the quality of cultivation and reduce energy costs.
The prices of LED lamps vary according to size and power, with an average of €100-€500 for medium size grow. It is vital to consider the energy efficiency and quality of LEDs when purchasing.
Furthermore, it is important to determine the correct power to apply based on the size of the grow space and the needs of the cannabis plants during the different stages of growth.
