LED grow lights are some of the most confusing pieces of grow technology on the market, and made more so by LED manufacturers purposefully confusing consumers in their marketing materials. Learn how to TRULY evaluate a LED grow light’s performance for its price range in this video. We’ll cover some basic terminology like PAR, PPF, PPFD, and photon efficacy.
Then, we’ll get into a few different misconceptions:
1. LEDs are better because they use less power.
2. Total potential wattage vs. actual diode capacity used.
3. PPFD numbers are to be trusted from manufacturers.
LEDTonic makes quite a solid quality LED grow light in the sub $200 range at 1.3 micromoles per Joule on their Z5 model:
