Light-emitting Plasma LEP Grow Lamps

July 2, 2018

Light-emitting Plasma, or LEP, grow lamps are emerging grow lighting technology for indoor gardeners. LEPs have no electrode or filament, but they use sulfur plasma with microwave radiation. LEP lamps operate like a hybrid between HID lighting and a solid-state LED light.

LEPs can deliver a wider spectrum of light than traditional MH or HPS lamps, with better efficiency and potentially lower heat output. Manufacturers of induction and plasma lights claim they are as energy efficient as fluorescents and produce moderate to almost no heat outputs.
