LED technology is one of the fastest growing and most significant areas of innovation in the cannabis growers scene. LED lights allow growers to save money on electricity and increase yields in comparison to their costs. SMD LED lights are one of the newest types of grow light technology and offer a lot of benefits to growers. While traditional hydroponic grow lights, usually Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium, are cheap to set up, it costs a ton of money in electricity to run them for 12 to 16 hours a day. They produce a lot of excess heat, requiring high powered fans for ventilation as well as more spacious grow rooms in order to prevent burning your plants. The bulbs must be replaced yearly, or they lose significant amounts of power and efficiency. LED lights run cool, use less electricity, and last longer. SMD, or Surface Mounted Diode, LED lights are one of the emerging technologies that are bringing LED grow lights into the hands of professional and novice growers alike. LEDs started out as the DIP style, which look like small bullets, are not very bright, and house one diode per chip. SMD LEDs contain three diodes (red, green, blue) in each housing and can be used for ...
