What is the difference between the different types of grow lights?

Understanding the Difference: Full Spectrum vs. Purple LED Grow Lights

The debate between full spectrum and purple LED grow lights often comes down to the color of light emitted. Plants primarily require red and blue wavelengths for optimal growth. Our BreezyGro and EasyGro lights are designed to provide these essential red and blue lights, which combine to appear as purple light to the human eye. This combination results in efficient photosynthesis and robust plant development.

Due to the fact that some growers may find purple LED lights intimidating, we also offer a selection of full spectrum grow lights. These lights incorporate additional wavelengths beyond red and blue, producing a white light that mimics natural sunlight. Although partial spectrum lights are traditionally considered more efficient, the industry trend is shifting towards full spectrum options due to comparable plant growth yields.

Choosing the Right Light for Your Indoor Garden

For most indoor plant enthusiasts, both full spectrum and purple LED grow lights will effectively support plant growth. While white lights may appear brighter to the human eye, the light intensity provided to plants remains consistent across both types of LEDs.

In addition to light color and intensity, it's essential to consider other features when selecting the ideal grow light for your indoor garden. Gathera offers a variety of LED grow lights with unique specifications, including replaceable bulbs and adjustable settings for customized lighting solutions.

Here is a comparison of some of our popular LED grow lights:

Product Light Colour PAR PPFD Number of Lights Replaceable Bulbs Number of Light Intensity Settings Color Change Option Multi-Bulb Operation
BreezyGro Blue/Red/Purple 24 108 3 No 5 Yes No
Full Spectrum 3 White 28 139 3 No 10 No Yes
HydroGlow 2 White 30 141 2 Yes 10 No Yes
HydroGlow 3 White 34 161 3 Yes 10 No Yes

PAR (Photosynthetically Active Radiation) and PPFD (Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density) values indicate the light intensity and distribution, crucial for plant growth.
