Why should you move your grow lights?

Grow lights emulate sunlight for gardens that we move indoors. As the sun moves throughout the day, the grow lights that we install in our indoor gardens should also move. This movement ensures that all parts of the plant receive light, and no part of the plant gets left out as they would if the light was in a stationary setting. While mylar wall coverings and reflective hoods help maximize the output from grow lights, growers must introduce a light moving system if they want the most efficiency. According to statistics, more than 50% of the light gets wasted in a stationary state. To make up for this issue, growers tend to install more lights, which is not the answer to this problem. The more efficient solution to this issue is the installation of a grow light moving system. Moving lights can increase coverage by 30%, allowing them to penetrate even deeper into the canopy.

What are grow light movers?

Grow light movers, as their name suggests, help in moving grow lights along with the canopy. Their functionality helps in solving wastage of light and elimination of shadows and hotspots.Rail or track light movers are the most common types of grow light movers. These systems are commonly 6’ in length. The light on the system starts moving from one end to the other at a slow but steady pace. On the other hand, circular light movers operate similar to a ceiling fan by rotating on arms.

How to choose the best grow light mover?

Two essential factors to consider are the price and the weight capacity of the light moving system. A typical moving system’s weight capacity ranges between 20 and 100 lbs. You should buy one after you have figured these two factors. Buying a grow light mover system is the best option for most growers, there are times when separately buying rails and motors is fine. We, at Groindoor.com, have got the best collection of light movers from Light Rail.

What are grow light mover rails?

Light mover rails are equipped with a motor and are an essential part of the light movement system. These rails vary in length but generally come in 3-6’ sizes. Grow lights move at a steady pace along these rails, distributing light on the plant canopies beneath them. As the grow light moves to one end of the rail, it reverses back to its initial position.
