Home lighting for plants. Additional artificial lighting for flats and plants in the apartment.

In the winter, when the sunlight is getting thinner every year, plants feel a shortage. Gardeners engaged in seedling cultivation of rare species of flowers are concerned about the extension of crop cultivation. The use of a regular room lamp is not considered a good option.
How to Choose a Lamp for a Plant


The design of LED lamp consists of LED array. When choosing such a device, it should be noted that not everyone can be used as an additional light source for plants. This basic parameter - needs to pay attention to the spectral range of electromagnetic radiation (wavelength). People perceive individual waves as color flow and see them as white light. For plant growth, a diode lamp with a wavelength of about 430-455 nm is recommended (blue light). The blossom requires a red spectrum (660 nm).

LED lamps for plants are used in apartments for decorative flowers in rooms where seedlings grow indoors. In the second case, you will need more lamps because the light must be on each line of the plant. This allows artificial replacement of natural light to create comfortable conditions in the greenhouse. Gardeners use LED lamps to illuminate plants in the garden to affect vigorous growth, flowers and fruit formation.
advantage
These popular today's plant LED lamps have many advantages over gas discharge, fluorescent lamps, and incandescent lamps. They have very profitable and impressive traits, attracting professional gardeners and gardeners. The best lighting conditions to make an unimaginable LED phytolamp. The main obvious advantages of the device (ice) are:

    The durability of a plant luminaires can be up to 50,000 hours. This is a 16 hour operation that is more than 11 hours a day. Incandescent bulbs (for comparison) can operate for about 1,000 hours. This proves that plant phytolamps are made simple for long term use.
    Energy efficiency and energy saving. Practice shows that energy saving is 80% compared with gas discharge lamp. The 480-watt artificial lighting system is similar in terms of efficiency of 700 watts. Gas discharge lamps are brightened (by power), but plants can not absorb up to 70% of the radiation. The spectrum of light responsible for performance is even more important.
    Easy to use. Plant LED lamps do not require additional equipment (reflectors, goggles, special cartridges). With their help, you can grow flowers, fruits and vegetables. Customer reviews are mostly positive.
    Safety LED lamps are harmless to plants that care for them. Do not heat up substantially. As a result, young green leaflets will not leak. The lamp can be installed at a distance of 25-30 cm. This proximity does not require ventilation but the LED does not affect the room temperature.
    Environmentally friendly. LED lamps for plants do not emit harmful substances and do not contain mercury. Permitted use at home (apartments, balconies, etc.)

Disadvantages
The luminous flux and the amount of light are measured by special devices in units of "lumens" (Lm) and "lux" (Lx). This is similar to the power of a light bulb (measured in watts). That is, the light source (lamp brightness) is measured as "lumen" and the intensity of the illuminated surface is measured as "luxes".

The more watts, the more intense the lumens and lamps are. Most of them are confusing both quantities and can not be found when purchasing a product.

There are rules for this type or its type, but hardly anyone has this device and can not get it. There is a way out. The plant itself tells you whether you need natural light or artificial.

Amount of light needed:

    1000-3000 suites - shade-tolerant plants generally maintain a distinct rest in winter.
    Up to 5000 Lux - plenty of natural light. FEATURES - Place pots on window frames to increase light intensity.
    5000-1000 or more - Indoor flowers require additional artificial lighting.

There is an automatic timer (manual adjustment) with indicator lights that automatically turn on the light at the required intensity and automatically turn off in certain lights. This can significantly reduce your energy costs and eliminate additional worries.

All plants can be grouped according to their appearance and natural habitat.

The variegated species always require the intensity of the sun's rays and are well tolerated in direct sunlight.
