The best LED grow lights for herbs in vertical farming
Many growers have built successful vertical farming facilities that grow herbs indoors under herb grow lights. LED lighting offers a number of benefits for growing sustainable food. By controlling the light, growers can germinate herbs quicker, grow roots faster and get bigger yields. Since LEDs run at cooler temperatures than other grow lights, they can be placed closer to the plant to encourage homogeneous growth. Ideal for growing herbs indoors with artificial light in vertical stacks. Our custom LED light recipes enable growers to steer flavor, appearance and other plant characteristics to meet specific consumer demands.
