Use Full Spectrum LED Grow Lights for White Light

October 3, 2018

Many LED grow-light fixtures labeled as full-spectrum may provide a mixture of only red and blue light, sometimes with IR and UV mixed in. Technically they are not full-spectrum, but nanometer-specific. The visible light these lamps produce has the appearance of a distinct color—blue, red, pink, or purple.

You can use a full-spectrum LED to design a beautiful and functional indoor growing environment for a beloved plant.

This is not a problem for your plants, as they use these spectrums most effectively, but if you don’t want distinctly colored light in your living room, these color-specific LED fixtures are better suited for the closet or grow tent.
