Some say that they have not achieved what they are expecting from the strain grown. How to grow marijuana under LED will also need you to understand other factors such as LED grow light coverage, beam angles, lumens, spectrum and wavelength.

There are several factors to be considered to determine the success of pot growing under LED grow lights. For a given wattage of light, there are grow spaces suitable for it. This will help in ensuring that you will get the highest possible yield expected from the cannabis strain you are growing. The wavelength or spectrum of light that the LED grow lights emit is a big factor in determining how much harvest can be expected.

What are LEDs?

  • some types of LED lights do not require you to set up additional equipment to control the heat within the grow room
  • it can provide the right spectrum of light that weed plants need during the vegetative phase and flowering time. The blue spectrum is needed for the vegetative growth and for the budding period, it’s the red spectrum that will help produce potent and high quality buds

How to grow weed under LED lights to obtain high yield of potent buds do not need much expertise, though experience in pot growing is a great advantage. It is quite simple to use since you can easily install this type of light over the plants and because LED lights barely produce any heat.

There are different LED grow lights available for growing cannabis. The Pro-Grow Led light is one of the highest quality and costly types.
