  • The True Value of Fluorescent and LED Grow Lights 02.22/2023

    LEDs and fluorescent lighting are effective at turning seeds into full-grown plants. As such, the argument between the 2 lighting types is not about effectiveness 

    but about energy efficiency, cost, and ease of use. LEDs tend to outclass fluorescent lighting in these metrics.

    Energy efficiency: Energy efficiency is calculated by the amount of light produced for each watt of energy used. LEDs, which often come with a heat

    sink, also output lower heat than fluorescent lights. This means that LEDs can be placed closer to the plant, allowing it to get the most out of photosynthesis.

    Conversely, fluorescent lights need to be placed farther away from the plant due to higher running temperatures. The more distant the light source, the less 

    energy is available for photosynthesis. Energy efficiency is important because of its environmental and financial implications. Not only do LEDs leave a smaller environmental footprint, they are also kinder on your electricity bills.

    Life expectancy: With an average lifespan of 50,000 to 100,000 operating hours, LEDs are 4-5 times more durable than their fluorescent counterparts. In fact, an LED light can last up to 10 years with proper usage!

    Ease of use: For optimal growth, plants need a mix of “warm” and “cool” lights. Growing with only warm lights results in short, bushy plants with no blooms. On the other hand, constant exposure to

    cool lights leads to brittle, spindly plants. To get around this problem, indoor gardeners have been using 2-tube fluorescent lighting systems with one warm bulb and one cool bulb.       

    While this 2-tube fixture has been the gold standard for many years, it is getting outshone by LEDs, which can emit the full lighting spectrum with a single bulb.

    Cost: LEDs are generally more expensive than fluorescent fixtures. However, maintaining a LED system may end up cheaper in the long run.  Better energy efficiency means lower electricity bills.       

    Superior durability means lower repair and replacement costs.
