LSR (fluorescent tubes) / plug-in lighting
What are LSR grow lamps and how are they used?
Fluorescent tubes (LSR) offer a wide light spectrum and are much more efficient compared to NDL lamps. This means they use less power and produce less (unnecessary) heat. However, they do not produce as much light in return.
For these reasons, LSRs are mainly used in the seeding and growing phase (for cuttings) or for growing plants that do not need a lot of light to grow. For plants that require a lot of light for growth or flowering, LSRs are of limited use. The plant may be able to reach the flowering state with LSR, but it will not be able to develop optimally.
For plants that need a lot of light to grow, it is recommended to use NDL lamps from the growth phase (i.e. after repotting the cutting into the growth container).
Which LSR set is right for you?
The Lightwave sets are particularly suitable for seeding or cutting lighting. They are also delivered already assembled and can be put into operation immediately.
If LSR is to be used during the entire life phase, i.e. also during the growth and flowering phase, then we recommend the sets from Taifun.
