How To Control The Grow Lights?

The distance between the grow light and the plant, as well as the use time of the plant light. They all need to be paid attention to.

Sunlight is an essential condition for photosynthesis in plants, so when there is insufficient light, plants cannot grow healthily. Therefore, many growers will find ways to supplement the light for plants artificially, and the grow light was born. However, in order to use grow lights to have good results, besides using suitable plant lights, there must be a correct way to use them. For example, the distance between the grow light and the plant, as well as the use time of the plant light. They all need to be paid attention to.

Lighting Distance

It is generally recommended that the distance from the top of the plant to the LED grow light to be controlled between 0.5m-1m. This distance not only allows the plant to receive sufficient light but also the LED grow light can illuminate a wider area.

In addition, according to the speed of plant growth, the height of the LED grow light should be properly adjusted to control the LED plant growth light in the most reasonable fill light position.

Lighting Time

Plants are also alive and need rest. It is also important to reasonably control the time that the LED grow lights fill the plants with light, generally no more than 16 hours. If it exceeds too much, the plant cannot rest accordingly, which will affect the synthesis of respiratory organic matter.

Depending on the weather, if there is sufficient sunlight during the day, you can fill in the light for 2-3 hours in the morning or evening. If it is cloudy, rainy, or hazy for a long time and the light is insufficient for a long time, it is necessary to use the fill light for a long time to fill in.

Regularly switch plant lights on and off

For example, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., sunlight can meet the needs of plant growth, and the time for supplementary light can be 7:00–9:00 and 17:00–21:00.

Set a reasonable light distance

Too far from the plant, the light is not enough, and the best plant lighting effect cannot be achieved. If it is too close to the plant, only partial lighting will cause the plant to receive uneven light, so the growth condition will not meet expectations.
