Here’s the complete Dorm Grow LED interview for enthusiastic growers:
1. Tell us what Dorm Grow LED does in your own words.
Dorm Grow helps indoor cultivators set up their grow space to grow the healthiest possible plants. Growers get large yields and more potency, aroma, and flavor from their crop.
2. What has been Dorm Grow’s biggest challenge? How did the company overcome it?
In our first few years, our biggest challenge was convincing the customer that LED grow lights actually worked, and they worked well. There were so many low-quality lights in the marketplace, which gave poor results. Growers did not trust LED grow lights at all. We knew the G8 lights could compete with HPS bulbs and it was a grassroots effort. Word of mouth referrals from delighted customers lead us to grow the brand and earn the trust of the indoor growing community.
Once the G8LED lights had proven themselves enough times, earned some awards, and there was enough proof, the next challenge was improving on an already very effective product. We took the feedback from customers and our own experience and continually made modifications to the lights. We enhanced their efficiency, longevity, and growing power. This is an ongoing, iterative process and necessary to stay at the forefront of indoor growing technology.
3. How do marijuana laws affect your business?
Recreational legalization opens up new markets, and customers for indoor grow lights, and generally increases the customer base.
4. What distinguishes Dorm Grow LED from other businesses in your niche?
There are many LED grow light brands and a handful of outstanding ones like G8LED. Most brands copy each other and try to sell as many lights as they can in a short period of time without understanding the life cycle of their product. The reason many brands disappear from the market after 3-5 years is that there may have been quality issues. These issues come back to haunt the manufacturer or the lights did not perform to the level that was required by the customer so the company exits the market.
Dorm Grow has been very methodical in its approach, using an iterative process to continually improve our grow lights. We have maintained a high level of customer service. We make sure we put out a product that will give the customer a superb plant product and a return on their investment. G8LED Grow Light reviews.
5. Something people might be surprised to learn about Dorm Grow LED Lights?
Dorm Grow LED was started by electrical engineers who turned into indoor growers. They applied their scientific approach to creating an awesome grow light that would be environmentally friendly.
6. What are your views on the future of the cannabis industry?
Legalization is the trend which will continue to change the laws across the remainder of the states in the US and many countries in South America and Europe. Just as in the alcohol industry, there will be mass-producers and smaller craft producers.
7. How much learning curve is involved to set up your LED grow lights?
G8LED lights are pretty easy to set up and grow with. Just hang them at the recommended height, plug them in, and start growing!
8. Places/ways our readers can purchase Dorm Grow LED Lights and other products?
9. Tell us about future products & plans of Dorm Grow.

10. Any tips for our readers and indoor plant growers?
When growing indoors, keep it simple, or at least start simple. Then add the complexity after you have several grows under your belt. Before trying a fully automated hydroponic set up which has more opportunities for mistakes and plant failures, try growing in dirt, without using nutrients. Establish a baseline of indoor growing knowledge, then build upon your base by adding all the complexities that can enhance the grow if done correctly.
