    The right lighting 

     

    Gediflora uses cyclic lighting above the mother plants to stimulate vegetative growth and combat budding in the cuttings. Since 1 September 2012 the sale of a large number of types of incandescent lamps has been banned throughout the European Union. This meant that Gediflora had to go in search of a different type of lighting. Energy-saving lamps proved not to be a good alternative for this, since budding still occurs.

    It quickly became clear that the far red light provided by Philips GreenPower LED DR/W/FR flowering lamps was needed to keep the mother plants completely vegetative. Despite the higher cost of purchase, the company will be able to recoup the investment within 18 months.

    Gediflora was looking for a good replacement for incandescent lamps and found an equivalent alternative by opting for LED lamps. The energy consumption of LED lamps is as much as 60% lower than incandescent lamps. This energy reduction accords with Gediflora’s vision of sustainability.
