A Bountiful Basement The 600 Watt Grow Light

Challenging hobbies, such as indoor gardening, can be greatly rewarding. Out in the wild, sprouts have an entire ecosystem to sustain and protect them. Therefore, this kind of caring and protection must be synthesized for optimal growth. Sunlight is needed for a sprout to grow through a process called photosynthesis. A 600 wattage High Pressure Sodium (HPS) grow light can become a virtual sun as it has the same light spectrum as our star.

A popular choice among botanists, the 600 wattage HPS grow light has enough strength to allow for sprout growth and adequate illumination for indoor or outdoor applications. Teachers or parents can have use for these lights if indoor gardening is something that interests the children of the home or class. The light output, measured in a unit called a lumen, (plural, lumina) is high enough that the grow lights such as LED grow lights could conceivably be used as street lights.

There are two powerful advantages to the 600 wattage HPS light; they have low heat emissions and cost less. High Pressure Sodium naturally has a high longevity and actually emits more lumina per watt of energy. This of course lowers the cost of maintenance. The 600 wattage output of this size of light is perfect for mini indoor greenhouses. Many amateurs swear by them because they are much more cost-effective than their more powerful analogues. Heat emissions can be controlled by accompanying units known as enclosures and reflectors.

Brand names in the grow light industry are easy to find with an internet connection, and there are many of them to choose from. Grow lights can differ in type of mountings, the type and kind of reflectors, and in cable lengths. Because of this, it is incredibly important that proper measurements be taken of the area to become a garden before purchasing the equipment. With the proper set up and dedication, the basement harvest will be bountiful!
