Any plant (like every living being on our planet) needs two essential things to grow and survive:
With indoor cultivation, many times we think it is enough to place them near a window where the sunlight comes through, but unfortunately, it is not enough. Plants in nature grow outside, not at home and for this reason they need direct artificial light 12 -14 hours a day. We can use neon, halogen spotlights or we can take advantage of the new LED technology.
LED tiene innumerables ventajas en comparación con la iluminación tradicional:
Al igual que los sistemas de iluminación clásicos, LED fue un gran paso adelante. En el mercado hay bombillas LED clásicas, proyectores LED (no halógenos), luces LED (no halógenos) y paneles LED, que analizaremos en detalle:
These LED panels are nothing more than a plate with all "special" LEDs that illuminate areas up to 2 square meters, are composed of 225 LEDs, 60 blue LEDs with a wavelength of 465 nm and 165 red LEDs with a wavelength of 650 nm, specially created to offer plants only the spectrum of light needed for photosynthesis without waste.
They consume a lot compared to LED, a traditional lamp of 100w is equivalent to a LED lamp of about 20w.
They get very hot, increasing the risk of fire and short-circuiting.
They emit harmful UV rays.
The traditional filament lamps have a duration of about 1000 hours, halogen ones about 4000 hours, those with LEDs about 15,000 hours.
They pollute the environment and are 30-40% recyclable.
