Tips on Growing Plants Under Grow Lights

Now that you have knowledge of the Mars Reflector Series with 4 Different Models, we want you to leave with these easy tips of growing plants under grow lights.

Choose the Best Light

The best light for your plants are the right kind of light for your plant. You want to make sure that the lights you purchase will illuminate the entire plants area. To cover your growing area, you might need more than one light source to fully cover your area.

Remember that your grow lights should provide the proper spectrums of light for photosynthesis. You need to understand that is the key to plant growth.

There are a number of types of grow light types available in the market today. Each of these types has their own strengths and characteristics.

However, LED grow lights offer the latest technology on the market today. As you may now know, LED lights are xtremely energy efficient and have an ultra-low heat output.

LED grow lights offer an ideal light spectrum range.

Make Time for Lights Out

Your plants like you, also need rest. Therefore, darkness plays a very important role for the plant growth cycle. Most plants benefit from six or more hours of darkness a day. Allowing your plants to rest lets them recuperate from a whole day of growth. Resting also allows them to set their buds and fruits. A timer that controls your lights will make this task a bit easier.

A good rest allows plants to recuperate from a long day of growth and setting of buds and fruit. To make this task easier, use a timer to control lights.

Set the Perfect Temperature

For seed germination, warm conditions are ideal. You can invest in a seed-heating mat or keep your plants in areas that are warm. Once your seed has germinated, the seedlings can now benefit from temperatures that are cool. So, lower your room temperature to five to ten degrees cooler at night.

Grow Light Placement

The best arrangement is to hang or place your lights over the plant pots or beds. This technique mimics natural sunlight from overhead. It also exposes all sides of the plants and its leaves to the artificial lighting.

You just have to keep adjusting the placement of your grow lights as the plants mature and develop to keep the proper distance.

In addition, you need to remember that the lighting level required for indoor growing depends on the plants’ characteristics.

Don’t Forget to Rotate

If your lights are not able to cover your whole plant area, always rotate your plant arrangement weekly. The light in the middle will be more intense than that of the ends. So do not forget to rotate your plants if you want them to grow evenly. Also, allow enough space between your plants so that the leaves will barely touch.

Water

It is important that you check water daily. The plants you grow indoors under grow lights will dry out quick. Seedlings need to be moist but now soggy. Remember that overwatering your plants will only kill it.

There you have it. We hope you learned something from this guide. Hope to see you guys again!
