If you are going to grow plants inside hydroponically, in soil or other mediums, you will need a grow light. A grow light mimics the light spectrum from the sun, essential for plant growth.
Plant growth falls into 2 key cycles - vegetative and flowering stages. For vegetative growth blue spectrum of light are ideal, and for flowering red/orange spectrums are required.
Easy guide to the right grow light for you:
- MH are ideal for vegetative growth
- HPS-TS grow lights are suited for flowering growth
AGRO bulbs have both blue and red/orange spectrums and are suited for both stage.
You can grow plants through both stages with either a MH or a HPS TS but results will not be optimum. The best way to grow is with a different bulb at each stage, a combination of lights, or choose a full spectrum bulb, such as the SONLIGHT AGRO.
