How does it work?

Full spectrum LEDs supply an optimal blend of light colors to support seed starting, vegetative growth and flowering. LEDs run at low temps thus minimizing the risk of burning young seedlings or plants. With the daily lighting schedule set, the light automatically turns on and off ensuring your plants get plenty of light every day. But how do the grow lights work exactly? You’ve probably heard of photosynthesis, the process by which plants make food by trapping light energy in their leaves. That light has many different colors in it. Chlorophyll, a plant pigment which does the trapping and creates energy for the plant, usually absorbs red and blue light. These two colors’ specific wavelength range, called Photosynthetically Active Radiation (or PAR for short), falls within 400 nanometers (nm) to 700 nm wavelengths, perfect for Chlorophyll A and B to manufacture sugar to fuel plant growth. Our full spectrum grow light provides both of these ranges in high amounts as well as in between ranges, too, which are important to other plant pigments. Even better? The combination of all spectrums is emitted as a natural, warm sun-like white color instead of the harsh bluish glare of other commercial grow lights.

Growing Tips

PREP FOR PLANTING Place a layer of drainage medium on the bottom of the watertight planter (e.g. clay pebbles, volcanic rock, etc), then add soil and plants, seeds or clippings. It is recommended that you plant your Growhouse prior to installing it on a wall. OUR PLANT PICKS Houseplants & Succulents (jade plant, aloe, philodendron, monstera, cacti); Kitchen Herbs (basil, parsley, oregano, mint, tarragon, rosemary); Flowers (marigolds, chamomile, lavender, pansys); Leafy Greens (arugula, butterhead, little gem, mesclun mixes). LIGHT SETTINGS Different plants require different intensities and durations of light to thrive. Select Partial Shade and adjust brightness to medium intensity for shade and low light plants. Choose Partial Sun and adjust brightness to medium-max intensity for partial sun plants. Choose Full Sun at max intensity for full sun plants. WATERING Watering frequency depends on the plant type. Be sure to factor in the environmental conditions based on the location of the Growhouse (sunlight, heat, humidity). AIR FLOW The Growhouse provides a protective environment, yet many plants benefit from air flow. It strengthens their stems and helps them stay hearty and upright, which is important when plants are started from seed and need to mature. When starting from seed, consider placing in a well-ventilated area near a window, vent, or fan. LOCATION Selecting an ideal indoor location is largely dependent on your preference and the plants you are growing. A sunny window can provide additional light and heat for fruiting and flowering plants or reversely too much heat for low light plants. A bathroom can provide a boost of humidity for water-loving botanicals. A vibrant vertical garden mounted on a wall can finally be achieved with a direct light source for your plants!

Safety Guidelines & Care Instructions

For indoor use only. The LEDs have been permanently installed into this fixture. Do not repair, disassemble, or modify under any circumstances. Although LEDs do not get as hot as incandescent light bulbs, they still generate some heat. Avoid touching the LED panel and do not cover lights with flammable objects. Do not try to modify the plug, cable, or adapter. Use only with supplied power adapter. Do not use the light if the power cord gets damaged. Avoid use in high temperature areas. TO PREVENT RISK OF SHOCK OR INJURY, always power off and unplug Growhouse before cleaning. Use a soft and slightly damp cloth when cleaning LEDs. Do not use chemical or abrasive cleaners.
