Strain Hunters Seed bank loves the Super Grow LED Lights.

The Major Grow Players:

1. from

The is a 250 Watt, full spectrum LED light which will replace a 500 Watt HID unit, increase yield by 25%, save 50% on electricity, take up less space and save on cooling and ventilation costs.
  • True Full Spectrum Grow Light: 420-750 nanometres (nm) with supplemental chlorophyll (A and B) absorption peaks.

Photosynthetically Available Radiation (PAR) refers to the wavelengths of light which plants use to grow and flower. While cannabis uses light of various wavelengths ranging from 400-750 nm, there are some wavelengths which are more important than others.

Vegetating: During this stage your plants need blue light, from 450-495 nm to photosynthesize correctly and develop strong roots and foliage.

Flowering: Now the plants want the red light of fall, 680-750 nm, which stimulates flowering and bud production.

Chlorophyll Peaks: Chlorophyll A and B are the two main photosynthetic pigments which are vital for plant growth. They absorb light at 660 nm, 450 nm and 640 nm and 475 nm respectively. The Spectrum Kingoffers plants extra light at these wavelengths to maximize growth and yield.

  • No Fans – Less heat

The Spectrum Kinguses high quality heat sinks, thermal bond and high quality metal clad printed circuit boards for fan-less thermal management.

There is no heat increase 12 inches from the source, so your HVAC needs are minimal.

  • 5 Year Warranty

With no bulbs or ballasts to replace and a predicted lifespan of 12 years or 60,000 hours.

  • 25% Higher Yield than equivalent HID Unit
