อุปกรณ์ไฟ ปลูกต้นไม้ GROW LIGHT
No light... no plants!
Light is the most important environmental factor to consider whether growing in soil outside, hydroponically inside or in a greenhouse. Depending upon where you live and where you want to grow, the sun will not always be there for you. With plant grow lights you can grow any plant, anywhere, at anytime! Accent hydroponics provide a wide range of grow lamps, reflectors, ballasts and accessories.
Grow Lights - How do they work?
Based on proven horticultural technology plant grow lights consists of three individual items.
- A reflector, which protects the lamp and directs the light to where we want it
- A ballast box, which contains the components necessary to ignite the lamp and to regulate the current when the lamp is running
- Finally, the lamp itself
Halide and Sodium
Depending upon the location of your hydroponic system and whether there is any natural day light available, you will most often start off with a High Pressure Sodium lamp. This is the type used by commercial growers to 'supplement' natural light and to extend the 'day length' that a plant is subjected to. Ask your specialist retailer for advice. Metal Halide lamps give off a 'blue' light which is more suitable for young plants and vegetative growth. High Pressure Sodium lamps put out light which is more 'red' and can be compared to the light of an autumn sunset. The addition of High Pressure Sodium lamps enhances flowering in many crops and are the preferred option if natural day light is also available.
The range of light energy emitted from any light source, from ultraviolet to infra red. The wavelength is measured in nanometers (nm).
