When growing marijuana indoor one of the most important factors to decide is which lights to use. LED lights have not always been popular, but thanks to the technology advancements for bringing the LED lights to the industry. With the modern LED lighting, you will be able to save energy and money as well. LED manufacturers have developed special lenses to point light directly to the plants and increase penetration, resulting in bigger yields for the same amount of light compared to the other lighting solutions.
When compared to the HID light, LED lighting will save you about 40% of the energy consumption. So, the energy savings are enormous. Furthermore, they take up less space, emit light faster, and are more durable and shock-resistant than HID lights.
Another big advantage is the risk of fire significantly. HID lights will become very hot, but good LED lights feel cool when you touch them, even after running for several hours. LED lights may achieve a lower yield than HPS lights, but the buds given light from LEDs will be stickier, stronger, and have a more intense aroma.
