Why grow with LED?
Raise the quality of your cannabis crop
Predictable production is key
By using LED light, the climate in the greenhouse or sole source facility can be controlled more easily. LED light comes with hardly any heat; thus the climate can be steered more easily. This results in consistent quality with the right composition of compounds, the same quantity year-round to simplify logistical planning and guarantee reliable manufacturing. You will harvest right when you need it free of contamination and without the use of pesticides.
High sustainable production
Growing your cannabis with the use of LED will generate higher yield per square meter compared to growing with other light sources. The right light optimizes photosynthesis and flower production and improves your numbers. Furthermore it uses the lowest possible energy input with a maximum production per Watt, a minimal use of water and nutrients, and a great working environment.

A light recipe describes the intensity, spectrum, duration and timing of the lighting applied to help you increase the quality and yield of your crops. Your plants need to go through a dark period of at least 12 hours every day to flower. They are triggered according to their photoperiod or numbers of hours of light/dark they receive.
