LED Lighting For Cannabis Plants
Light Emitting Diode (LED) Grow Lights
Plant lights that utilize Light Emitting Diodes (LED) are hitting the market with great potential benefits of this type of plant light include their extremely low power consumption, low heat production, extremely long lamp life, and their ability to refine the spectrum of light emitted to only those that the plant actually uses for photosynthesis. And the future holds great promise for LED plant lighting.
Safety & Resources
It is of utmost importance when purchasing plant growing lamps that every consideration to safety be observed, since growing lights are electrical devices that in many cases are in close proximity to water. Many companies claim their lighting systems are fully Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed and approved for use in damp locations, when in fact, only their components have been independently certified.
Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
thoroughly tests many indoor lighting systems for safety. A UL Listing for a lighting system is only valid when the entire manufactured system is submitted for testing and safety approvals and is sold as a complete light system.
Beware of no-brand and do-it-yourself lighting kits.
Paying a few dollars more for a system that meets the high standards of safety set by Underwriters Laboratories could save that amount many times over should a shoddily manufactured lighting system cause a fire in your house.
