Light created by an LED is given off thanks to the LED chip inside the tiny bulb, and they each lack filaments, unlike fluorescent bulbs. Without filaments, LED bulbs cannot 'burn out' like traditional lights, allowing them to last longer and brighter than their filament counterparts. LED lights tend to last 110,000 hours, which means roughly 11 years of continuous usage before they stop working. Electronics that include LED lights take advantage of the lifespan, meaning that those electronic items last longer, and people spend less time replacing the bulbs and ultimately save money. One major drawback seen with LED lights is that they often come at a higher initial cost; the fact that the bulbs contain microchips makes them a bit more expensive.
In order to grow healthy, indoor plants, most indoor farmers tend to use grow lights that provide the essential light an indoor plant needs in order to mature. Grow lights come in multiple different shapes and lengths, but most are built with LED lights that mimic the wavelengths created by the sun. Most LED lights seen on these devices will yield blue and red light, as these two are the most important for plant growth.
Grow Light Advantages
LED grow devices also have the additional benefit of giving a plant 24-hours of light, which no outdoor plant can get, plus the added attribute of avoiding bugs and bad weather that outdoor plants combat. With LED grow lights, farmers will have less to concern themselves with in regards to spraying their plants with insecticide, but more importantly, the plants can mature much faster than outdoor plants because of the amount of light they get. LED grow lights provide a major benefit to the farmer who wants to grow his plants ahead of the growing season or simply dodge the bad weather conditions within his area. Indoor farmers require LED lights to generate essential light, which will help them grow their plants to maturity.
