FAQ

NextLight LED grow lights use full spectrum, bright white light for a couple reasons. First, the NextLight Spectrum encompasses the full spectrum of the trusted HPS 1000 and adds everything it lacks. Second, bright white light is easy to work under and enables you to easily detect any problems with your plants.

This is a myth perpetuated by LED manufacturers using proprietary purple spectrums.

The NextLight Spectrum gives you more green and yellow than LED competitors of the past. Modern science has concluded, in bright white conditions, green light is most photosynthetically efficient.

When purple LEDs were first introduced to the market, the use of green light was not feasible from a technology standpoint. Therefore, they used outdated science to promote their perfect purple, proprietary spectrum.

As any grower knows, the quest for the perfect spectrum is more of a gimmick than a scientific pursuit.

Plants primarily utilize light within the visible light spectrum for plant growth. Therefore, NextLight products do not incorporate light outside the visible light spectrum; i.e. ultraviolet (UV) light and infrared (IR) light. For customers who desire UV and IR, we suggest using supplemental lighting.

NOTICE: Trace amounts of UV emitted from NextLight products. Minimize exposure to eyes or skin. Use appropriate shielding or eye protection.
