LED Grow Light - Help Your Indoor Plants Grow With LED

What Are LED Grow Light Bulbs?

An LED grow light bulb is a light bulb specifically made for growing plants. The LEDs {Light Emitting Diodes} in a grow bulb give off full-spectrum light that mimics bright sunlight. LED grow light bulbs aren’t just for your light-craving houseplants. They are also perfect for use in greenhouses, hydroponic gardening, and indoor gardening (like starting spring seedlings for your vegetable garden).


Can I use normal led lights to grow plants indoors? 

LEDs, being monochromatic sources and being available in wide range of pure colors, are the only light sources that can be tailored to give right spectrum & do wonderful things for plant growth. Plants grow quicker and healthier than under other, traditional lighting methods such as HPS, and if the LEDs are good, then even better than under natural sunlight.


Most popular plant growth LEDs lights are purple/pink 

Different color LED chips placed inside the light, give different kind of response from plants.

  • If we want plants to grow tall, increase the amount of far-red, yellow, orange and green chips inside the luminaire.
  • If we want plants to be compact, put more blue or UV colored chips.  

Two essential light colors to be placed in an LED lamp are: red and blue.

Red is the main component needed for photosynthesis and stem elongation inhibition. Additionally, it signals to the plants that there are no other plants above it and that it can thus have uninhibited development.

Blue stimulates stomatal opening, stem elongation inhibition, leaf expansion, curvature towards light and photoperiodic flowering.
