Feel that your grow lights are dimmer than before? Youre probably right. Most HPS & MH bulbs start to get dimmer after 10,000 hours of use and operate a lot less efficiently. To correct this, you will need to replace your HPS & MH Grow light Bulbs.
We all know that plants need light from different light spectrum parts throughout their life cycles. In other words, metal halide (MH) bulbs, with their blue light emission, enhances leafy growth and production of more bud sites. When the plants enter their flowering stage, they need a red/orange light to produce dense flowers. This is where high pressure sodium (HPS) bulbs come into play, making both MH and HPS bulbs essential catalysts for successful plant growth.
What separates double-ended grow lights from single-ended ones the ability to give off a brighter, wider and more intense light than single ended grow lights. If you’re a hobby indoor grower with a small grow tent or grow area, then single-ended grow lights are preferred as they emit less heat than DE lights. So, whether you’re a small-scale grower or a commercial one, Groindoor.com has just the perfect equipment for you!
