lights Fluorescent vs. LED for Seed Starting
Like Velcro, cordless tools and wireless technology, the innovations brought by NASA's research results have undoubtedly changed people's daily habits.These technological advances extend even to gardening, as well as the study of plant growth under lightLEDs or LEDs may permanently change the way plants start and grow indoors.While the fluorescent lamp has long been the standard light source for indoor start-up seeds, the led has many advantages and may eventually use the fluorescent lamp to grow plants that are as outdated as Telegraph.Look at almost all the electronics.-It may have an LED somewhere above, usually indicating that the device has electricity.Despite the intentional dimming of these LEDs, recent advances in LED technology have LED to more powerful lights that have gained traction in specific uses such as general lighting and plant growth.Unlike fluorescent lamps that glow in a wide spectrum, LEDs are designed to glow in a narrow band and can be combined to achieve a specific effect.Long-The Led has a long life and high efficiency, hardly produces heat, reduces the electricity bill, and rarely needs to be replaced. don't break it easily, there is actually no need to provide additional ventilation or airflow above the plant to cool them.Although the price of the LED is still more expensive than the fluorescent lamp, new LED products specially developed for plant growth can be inserted directly into the wall and connected as needed to form a chain or a series of lights.One drawback of LED growth lights is their psychedelic appearance.Since plants only use light of blue and red wavelengths for photosynthesis and growth, LED growth lights use a combination of blue and red bulbs, resulting in strong purple light.Most of the studies to date have shown that these blue and red LEDs lead to stronger and more robust plant growth compared to fluorescent bulbs.However, because LEDs are designed to glow at very specific wavelengths, not all blue-Red LEDs produce the same amount and mass of light, and the study continues to study how different kinds of plants germinate and behave under different types of LEDs.Early adopters of the technology may find that better products will emerge as research progresses.For most home growers, traditional fluorescent tubes are affordable, practical and widely available.Standard advice for indoor growers and seeds over the yearsBeginners have been using a fluorescent fixture with a coolA warm lightLight tube, hanging a few inches above the top of the plant.Full-Sunlight spectrum bulbs produce the right wavelength range, but the energy efficiency is low, and the heat generated causes young plants to grow too fast and become thin.Since the old bulb can cause the quality of the light to drop, the bulb needs to be replaced every year or twice.While fluorescent lighting looks clumsy and unattractive, the human eye perceives the emitted light as white, making it easier to live at home.Not all seeds need light as a condition for germination.Some species need darkness for proper germination, such as plants such as larkspur (the zellida species.Studies on whether led or fluorescent agents are more conducive to seed germination are still in progress;Some studies at Michigan State University show that seed germination rates are better under led, although other studies conducted at Wofford College in South Carolina show that, there is no difference in germination rate between plants starting under led and fluorescent agent, and fluorescent agent may actually be more than led
