What is the Highest Yielding LED Grow Light System?
G8LEDs are (still) the highest yielding LED grow light system. G8LED Grow Lights provide the largest yields when growing indoor with LED technology. G8LEDs will outperform all white lights and other targeted spectra grow lights, growing healthier plants, with robust flowers with increased resin formation as trichomes. Plants grown with G8LED lights will have more flavor, aroma, and potency.
G8LED lights maximize the portions of light that the plants need most, such as the red and far red wavelengths and minimize the portions that are used less by plants such as the yellow and green wavelengths. The scientific balance is accomplished by taking a weighted average of the PAR absorption rates of chlorophyll-a and chlorophyll-b for flowering plants. A white LED grow light is not able to do this and is therefore not as efficient as a targeted spectrum light. G8LED lights also have the added advantage of providing plants with ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) wavelengths, along with some white diodes to provide a complete and balanced spectrum. White LED grow lights produce lower yields because they are not optimized and balanced like a G8LED grow light, and are missing the critical UV diodes.
PAR Absorption Graph for Flowering Plants
Award-winning G8LED grow lights have the most efficient spectra and a very dense network of diodes which work together to bring balanced light energy to the plants. Plants thrive and output large yields, with reduced electrical consumption and no excess heat. The G8LED diode formulation maximizes growth and yield, without wasting energy in unnecessary wavelengths. The G8 spectrum touches all the colors in the light spectrum, however only amplifying the critical portions that benefit the plants. G8 lights also have Ultraviolet (UV) and Infrared (IR), which enhance trichome formation and quality of the plants.
While some lights promote more wavelengths, G8LED lights only use the portions of the light spectra which the plants require, in the correct proportions to grow healthier plants. If more wavelengths were better for indoor growing, we would produce a 15-band, 20-band or a white light. However, more wavelengths are not better when it comes to the science of indoor growing and a targeted spectrum grow light like G8LED will outperform for your grow room.
Which LED Grow Lights Work the Best?
What LED grow light should I buy? Although there are many good choices, G8LEDs are some of the top performing lights for indoor growing. G8LED lights produce more PAR, more yield per watt, and more yield per square foot than other grow lights. G8LED lights have a very high concentration of light energy per square inch which means more plant growth. With G8LED lights, not only is the dry weight yield maximized, but the plants produce a higher quality product.
A G8LED will outperform a similar wattage white or yellow light because it is targeting the exact portions of the light spectrum required by the plants. G8LED lights use diodes from 380 to 760nm, with some white diodes to round out the color range. The UV diodes in the G8LED lights allow plants to form more trichomes which make for frostier plants. Using an all white light defeats the whole purpose of using LED technology to target specific wavelengths of light required for plant growth and will give smaller yields. NASA used targeted spectrum lights similar to G8LED when testing LED lights for growing food in space!
G8LED grow lights have gone through several iterations of improvements over the years, to bring about very high quality and highly efficient grow lights. Designed by electrical engineers turned indoor growers, G8LED lights have been an excellent addition to many grow facilities. G8LED lights also come with exceptional customer service to our customers.
