How important is the seedling and vegetative stage of plants? Just as every child needs to be especially cared for in childhood, your plants also need special care from you in their infancy. The best way is to give them the best light they need most – using seedling grow lights! As everybody knows, using LED grow lights for seedling cultivation is the best choice for the majority of growers. It can provide the plants with the best quality and most reasonable light, and has a long lifespan.
In order to give growers the most professional growing experience, Mars Hydro has launched a new grow light for seedling, veg and cloning named VG80 seedling grow light, which focuses on providing plants with the most suitable ratio of blue & red light. In this article, we will explain the detailed advantages of this grow light, please read on!
The Basic Specifications of VG80 LED Grow Light
|Spectrum||4800-5000K, 455-465nm, 650-665nm|
|Certificate||ETL, CE, UKCA, RoHS, DLC, IP65|
Full-Spectrum Grow Light: The Optimized Ratio of Blue and Red Light
For healthy plant growth, the different spectrums needed need to be provided by LED grow light. That is to say, your plants will grow better when and if they have access to the two essential spectral colors in their life cycle – blue spectrum and red spectrum. Blue light wavelength during the seedling stage is especially catching because it allows more carbon dioxide to enter the leaves, thereby promoting the opening of stomata. At the same time driving the peak chlorophyll a/b required for photosynthesis to be absorbed, helping plants to synthesize proteins and amino acids. Red light wavelength is also important for plant growth, but its effects on plant development are not as obvious as blue light wavelength. And The main role of red light is to stimulate the flowering and fruiting of plants and make it easier for plants to improve their photosynthesis function.
If plants don’t get enough blue light but too much red light at the seedling stage, they possibly become thin and weak (also known as “leggy”). This kind of “leggy” plant tends to produce fewer flowers and creates an untidy spindly appearance.
To prevent the ‘leggy’ of plants and make the blue light play the greatest role in the early stage of plant growth, we adjusted the spectrum of VG80 and added the most appropriate ratio of blue light and red light to it.
In addition to its remarkable effect on the early growth of plants, blue light also plays an incomparable role in cannabis cloning because the sufficient blue light of VG80 grow light can help cannabis clones grow a well-developed root system. You can see that the VG80 LED grow light will be widely favored by cannabis clone breeders.
Easy-to-Install and Ultimate Versatile LED Grow Light Bars
The overall size of VG80 seedling led grow light is about 1150 x 50 x 31mm (45.27 x 1.96 x 1.22inch) and the total weight is about 2.1kg, extremely compact and lightweight to save space. In addition, hanging kits are included in each VG80 grow light package, you can easily use it to hang your grow light in any grow space like grow tent, greenhouse, etc.
Besides, VG80 grow light for seedlings is composed of two independent light bars, so it’s the best partner for plant shelves. Because of this special design, VG80 Grow Light for vegetative is compatible with specific indoor grow systems, such as bottom lighting, side lighting, inter-canopy lighting, and top lighting.
All-Round Waterproof to Prevent Short Circuits& Keep Long-lifespan
VG80 seedling grow light is equipped with IP65 waterproof-rated light bars and a transparent waterproof lampshade. Besides, the plug-and-play connector and the wire are designed with a waterproof seal to ensure the light is fully water resistant in all directions, strictly prevent the occurrence of short circuits and keep the light’s long lifespan
“Plug-and-Play” Help Growers to Connect All Grow Lights in Series
To convenient for growers to use multiple lights in series, plug-and-play components are added to VG80 seedling grow light, and up to 20 LEDs and plug-and-play components can be connected simultaneously. All you need to do is connect the different two lights with the pair of plugs easily.
The Best PPFD Values for Seedlings Veg and Cannabis Cloning
VG80 seedling grow light is equipped with 432 high-efficiency diodes from the internationally renowned brand OSRAM, can meet the lighting needs of 4×2 feet of growing space, and provide your plants the uniform PPFD.
Based on professional data, PPFD values that most plants need at their seedling stage is maintained between 100µMol/m2/S and 300µMol/m2/S. So VG80 grow light perfectly meets the PPFD needs requiring by the plants and cannabis’s seedling stage.
The Preferred Replacement for T8/T12 Fluorescent Grow Lights
VG80 LED grow light can be used as the best replacement for T8/T12 fluorescent grow lights. First of all, fluorescent lights usually require a separate ballast to run, which consumes energy and is expensive to replace, while LED grow lights don’t need it. Secondly, LED grow light is designed with higher safety performance and no pollution to the environment. Thirdly, the lifespan of ordinary T8/T12 fluorescent lights is about 20,000 hours to 24,000 hours, while the lifespan of VG80 grow light is about 50,000 hours, absolutely the king of durable light bars!
Choose Mars Hydro VG80 LED Grow Light for Your Beloved Plans!
If the plants grow healthy and strong at the seedling and vegetative stages, it will lay the foundation for future harvests and reduce a lot of stress in the grower’s growing process. Therefore, all growers should take good care of the seedlings of plants, and let this VG80 seedling grow light help you!
