LED Growing Units

August 27, 2018

Small self-contained LED growing units aim to provide both ambient full-spectrum and blue or red spectrum light for plant growth. LED lamps produce only about a quarter of the heat that other high-intensity lamps emit because they can convert more watts into light.

Low heat output also means you can place LEDs close to your plants without the risk of scorching foliage or damaging young seedlings. LED units like this one can be used to grow small succulents, tropicals, or low-growing herbs.
