    Growing With Added UVA/Far Red

    Growing with added UVA and Far Red.

    Photosynthetic Active Radiation or PAR refers to the spectrum of electromagnetic radiation that is visible as light. Plants use this light energy to drive photosynthesis, grow and reproduce. The spectrum is measured in nanometers (nm) and for many years it was agreed that the range of visible light (PAR) sits between 400nm and 700nm. At the low end of the PAR range is blue light and at the upper end is red light.

    Recent plant research suggests that expanding the spectrum of light outside of the “traditional” PAR range has significant effects on plant behaviour and that usable range is 380nm to 780nm.

    The Dio-Tech UVA/FR Light Bars does just that. It extends the spectrum to include not only visible light, but also UVA and Far Red, for optimal plant performance.

    What are the benefits of UVA?

    Electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength between 315nm and 400nm is classed as UVA. This wavelength induces a stress response within the plants, much as it does in humans, to develop compounds that will protect its cells from being damaged by prolonged exposure.

    Receiving UVA radiation stimulates the plants natural defences and encourages it to develop thicker, waxier leaves. This helps protect the plant against biotic stress factors, like pests, fungal and bacterial pathogens. Research also suggests that UVA deters certain species of sucking insects.

    Most importantly, exposure to UVA during the flowering period stimulates the production of resin, terpene and flavonoid compounds, and increases biomass.

    Hydroponic Grow Systems

    What are Hydroponic Grow Systems and How Do They Work?

    A Grow System Is Something that is controlled and contained.


    Our Hydroponics systems work by being able to control the environment that they are in. From the temperature of the room, to the nutrients in the soil. The amount of light that they recieve from Grow Lights and the amount of water they are given.

    Basically, a Hydronponics grow system is everything that a plant would need outside but controlled indoors. Often Indoor Grow Tents and the perfect surroundings for this to happen.

    This means that in a highly controlled environment your plants will thrive more so than they may do outside. By having this much control you are minimising the risks of insects eating your plants, pesticides and producing a much healthier crop.



    Here at Green Spirit Hydroponics we have staff who have been here for years who know a thing or two when it comes down to anything Hydroponics and Horticulture related. The majority of them have green fingers and love what they do.

    If you would like any help or advice then feel free to call the guys on ☎️ SHEFFIELD: 01142753353 email or send a DM to one of many of our Social Media channels as we are very active there too.

    Catch you soon,
