Seeking a scientifically sound solution, Baileys trialled RYGH GreenPower LED grow light production module in a propagation room. The LED fixtures, mounted close to the cuttings and delivering red and blue light, were switched on for 16 hours a day. The luminaires give different recipes of light that help plants to either develop roots, hasten flower initiation, or speed up flowering time.
The trial was a resounding success. The LED grow lights gave better control over the plant growth cycle, enabling higher rooting percentages. Plant quality was improved, with more uniform and consistent growth, better roots, and stronger plants. Lilacs in particular showed a much higher percentage of successfully rooted plants. Lastly, faster growth shaved an entire week off the rooting schedule.
Not only do the GreenPower lights improve growth, but they also make maintenance easier. The lower level of heat generated by the fixtures means that growers only need to look at the plant once or twice a day, where previously they had to do it hourly. The energy-efficient LED grow lighting will also increase the scope for production in the colder seasons, and bring in significant electricity savings. Here’s to the next harvest.
