Starting seeds indoors with LED grow lights
Added on 14 September 2022
Yet whatever setting you grow in, using the proper grow light for seed starting presents an opportunity to begin your crop on the path to higher yields and a quality product.
Why use seed starting grow lights
Using grow lights for seedlings not only allows growers to get an earlier start to the season, it creates more developmental uniformity and hardiness for any crop. This addition can lead to better predictability within your grow cycle, assisting in regulating your farm's seed-to-harvest schedule.
Another pro to adding LED grow lights for seed starting to your farm is once seedlings are ready for transplant, the fixtures can remain functional, becoming a staple of your grow operation.
If you're looking for a simple and effective LED grow light for seedlings, as well as one you can use in any stage of your crops' lifecycle, the Arize Life2 is a popular solution.
