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. Click HERE for more information.

Simply put, no. Plants primarily utilize light within the visible light spectrum for plant growth. Therefore, NextLight base model products do not incorporate light outside the visible light spectrum; i.e. ultraviolet light and infrared light. For customers who desire UV and IR, we suggest using supplemental lighting. Click HERE for more information.

NextLight base model products do NOT come with dimmers. We suggest adjusting the hanging height of the fixture to obtain optimal coverage for different stages of growth. If you are experiencing height restrictions, dimmers can be added to most NextLight models for an additional fee.

For large commercial applications suggested hanging height may change. Do NOT hang fixtures lower than the minimum suggested hanging height, this may burn plants.

Flower: 12 - 24 inches (18 inches for most conditions)
Veg: 18 - 36 inches (Start high, adjust as plants acclimate)

NextLight Core Suggested Hanging Height

Flower: 8 - 18 inches (10 inches for most conditions)
