We at Green Spirit Hydroponics know that the right type of grow lights can mean the difference between a good crop and a bad crop. That's why we stock over 20 different types of growing lights to suit your need. The grow lights are one of the most important features in a hydroponic system, as they mimic the sun's rays to help your plant grow to it's full potential. Depending on what you need for each stage of the plant's life, you can choose from the varying wattages of growing bulbs.
Hydroponics Light Bulbs (and accessories)
Most indoor grow rooms do not have access to the sunlight that plants need in order to grow, so it is important to install hydroponics lighting so that the plants get the necessary UV light. If the plants do not seem to be thriving with one type of hydro light, a different type of bulb might work.
There are various types of hydroponic bulbs available including the 250 watt CFL and hydroponic LED grow light. It is best to match the type of hydroponics light bulb with the size of the grow room and the type of plants that are being grown.
No matter which type of hydroponics grow lights are used, it is important to monitor the heat level produced by the HPS grow light. Since excess heat in small grow rooms is a concern, some people prefer to use hydroponic LED grow light bulbs because they do not emit much heat. There are also air cooled lights available that have air flowing through the reflector area to remove the heat. Of course, an air cooled light requires a bit more work during installation because it needs to be attached to a ventilation system.
