“One of the main challenges for cannabis growers is to grow the crops as quickly as possible, while remaining high-quality and consistent. In order to do so, a good lighting system that is easy to control is vital,” says the Mars Hydro team. The company manufactures different types of full spectrum LED growing lights, and aims to provide growers with a complete growing solution that increases their quality and yield. “So far, cannabis growers have been really content with the light systems, and it even saves them money.”
Quick production, high quality, consistency
According to the Mars Hydro team, there are many challenges that cannabis growers have to face when it comes to lighting. Luckily, the company is here to help growers with some of the most common challenges. “Growers want to grow as quickly as possible, while also maintaining high quality and consistency. As can be expected, this is a challenge. It requires great growing skills, the correct nutrient plan, and a good lighting system of course. In fact, proper lighting is vital to make sure that all crops can get even lighting for the photosynthesis process. We have been a lighting manufacturer for 13 years and have two factories, meaning that we can offer a better price for our customers directly. Therefore, it helps our growers be more cost-effective. By purchasing high quality lights at a more affordable price, the grower can save a lot concerning their lighting system purchasing and operation costs.”
The 4 cores of choosing LED lights
So what are some core aspects that growers should focus on when choosing the right LED lighting system? The most important first step is to take a look at the quality. “A LED chip takes up over 70% of the whole light cost. As a result, the LED chip’s quality can represent the light’s quality.” Next up, performance. “The amount of yield you achieve is largely due to the performance of the LED lights. The Mars Hydro PPFD (Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density) output is high and consistent in full coverage, which leads to consistent flowers and maximized yields.” And of course, the price-to-performance ratio and reliability of the company are other important aspects to consider when investing in a lighting system.
And when it comes to making the final decision, the Mars Hydro team communicates with the growers to provide the best solution for their personal situation. “We offer three series of lights; we have the SP, FC-E, and FC series. Based on the customer’s operation settings, the crops and the budget, we find out what the best light model would be. If necessary, we would also be happy to help with adjusting the light spectrum, even though we have not yet got those requests. We have done many years of research on spectrum, and growers have been really content with the results so far.”
