Choosing the right indoor grow light for your space
Choosing the right indoor grow light for your area.
Most people assume that more light means a greater yield and forget to take into consideration the second part of the equation which is area of plants. While in most cases the more light the better, there is still always the possibility of the light being too powerful for the growing space. To determine the proper light for your growing space you must first determine the size of the area you would like to receive light. The area of light that is projected downward is called the footprint.
KIND LED grow lights has a different footprint for each light they sell to adequately support different size growing spaces. For example, if you have a grow space that is 4ft x 4ft you would not want to use a light with a footprint exceeding that such as our XL1000 with an advertised footprint of 5ft x 5ft. So our suggestion would be to use the XL750 light with an advertised footprint of 4ft x 4ft for a densely populated grow. If you would like to leave yourself some working area you could get away with our L600 which has an advertised footprint of 3ft x 4t.
LEDs do not emit much heat but they are very bright, this can cause bleaching and leaf curl if they get too close to the plant. You always want to make sure the grow space properly fits your light to achieve the greatest yields possible.
If you are using a light with a footprint that exceeds your growing space not only can it be overkill for the situation, its a waste of electricity. So always be sure to equip your grow room with the right size light to keep your plants happy, healthy and thriving.
