LED Grow Lights, Lighting
Plants obviously need Sun light to grow, but when natural sunlight is harder to come by then a great alternative is to grow inside with Grow Lights. There are several different types that you could choose from, including plasma, fluorescent, HID (High-Intensity Discharge), and LED. Out of all the above-mentioned types, LED is worthy of your attention, and here’s why:
1 - Quicker Plant Cycle
Plants do not get sun 24 hours a day, but with LED Grow Lighting, your plants can have access to the 'Sun' for much longer as long as your lights are kept on.
2 - Longer Life Span
LED Grow Lights last much longer than an ordinary bulb
3 - Energy Saving
LED Lighting does not burn anything to get bright meaning a lesser cost to your electricity bill.
4 - Environmently Friendly
LED grow lights, can be fully recycled, making them an eco-friendly alternative to HID lights. Those lights contain fairly high amounts of mercury, which can be very harsh on the environment – especially when it’s burned. LED grow lights, on the other hand, do not contain these harmful substances, which means the air around you and your lights will not be compromised. You’ll be saving yourself and saving the environment, all in one shot.
5 - Healthy Plants
No burning and no UV damage. LED Grow Lights are a much better alternative for the plant and for the environment.

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.
