LED vs. HPS Grow Lights

More and More Growers Choose LED Grow Lights

Lighting is essential to get the highest possible yields when cultivating marijuana seeds indoors. Many utilize HPS to expose the plants to red light, which promotes bud production during the flowering stage.

The issue with HPS lights is that too much energy is wasted and only reddish lights are produced. Energy expenditures are also high with this fixture due to the ventilation system required to address the heat.

Croplite LED grow lights represent a more efficient alternative to HPS bulbs. Growers can improve the yield of the crop while saving money with the tech behind our LED bulbs.

Why Growers Replace HPS with LED Grow Lights

LED: Better Harvest

Croplite LED grow light is meant to provide the most suitable light quality and light quantity in every growing stage. Due the most suitable design of the lamp, which can make the plants receive the best absorption in highest efficiency, yield rates can be expected to get a 25% increase.

HPS: Poor Harvest

Using HPS lights often results in only half a gram per wattage since the fixture can only achieve a reddish-orange spectrum. While the wavelength is suitable for flowering plants, it does not promote growth during the vegetative phase. Poor growth due to the lack of light results in lower yields.

LED: Grow Faster

Shortening the growth cycle of plants is doable with Croplite LED lights thanks to the custom spectrum from our fixture. The wavelength allows the plants to reach the harvest-ready stage within three months, which leads to a higher annual yield rate and the possibility of various species being cultivated in one year.

HPS: Grow More Slowly

With HPS lights, breeders are limited to only a small wavelength range. Plants exposed to the fixture go through the vegetative phase at a snail’s pace since the light is insufficient for developing bud sites. Marijuana seeds take about four months or more to mature, which translates to low ROI for weed producers.

LED: Less Energy Spent

Running an indoor garden with Croplite LED lights requires less electricity since the fixtures use less power than other types of grow lights. Also, breeders do not need to install a cooling system since our lights have a low heat output. Farmers can save money on electricity bills and achieve better earning margins.

HPS: Higher Electricity Bill

Indoor gardens with HPS fixtures call for a ventilation unit to draw heat away from the area. The bulb also uses more electricity to produce its light than other fixtures. The money spent on covering the bill for both the venting system and HPS lights leaves growers little room for profit.

LED: Longer Service Life

The lifespan of Croplite LED bulbs averages around 50,000 to 100,000 hours, which is longer than the lifespan of other grow lights. The complex inner components and low heat production give our bulb a service life that is considerably longer than the service life of other fixtures. Your growers can save money in the long run with our LED lights.

HPS: Shorter Service Life

HPS bulbs can only last up to 10,000 hours because of the metal and chemical components that quickly degrade the fixture. Intense heat is also another reason for the short lifespan of the bulb. Regularly replacing used bulbs can add up to growers’ expenses that eat away their profit.
