While choosing your lighting for growing plants indoors or aquarium lighting LED light bars could be a good option.
Plants produce sugar with the process of photosynthesis in the presence of sun light. They require red and blue light to complete the process of photosynthesis. The red and blue light is present in the sun light but is not visible to the naked eye.
When thinking of growing plants indoors there are lot things to consider than just the color of light. Indoor gardening needs a totally diverse approach as adequate natural light is generally absent.
Incandescent lamps are fine for giving light for daily activities, but are not suitable for driving photosynthesis, as they have small output in the blue range and a great deal of their energy is transformed to heat.
According to the studies carried out LED lights are found to be the best for maximum plant biological activities and energy efficiency.
LED light bars can provide a low-priced and efficient source of lighting for plants, helping plant growth in the absence of natural light. Red and blue LED light bars can be joined in a fixture to supply several ratios of red-to-blue wavelengths.
LED light bars also generate less amount of heat as compared to the traditional source of light and therefore plants require less amount of water. They can be efficiently placed next to the plants for maximum effectiveness.
Besides, Led light bars are highly durable, they emit the same amount of light while consuming less energy and are long lasting. So, it looks like LED lights are an excellent source of artificial lighting for plants
