LED grow light intensity is the only LED grow light feature that could be a drawback at the same time that it is a benefit. LightRail light movers are the solution to harnessing this grow light power productively.
LED grow light intensity, both a drawback and a benefit
Of the three main benefits of LED grow lights (quality output, intensity and energy efficiency), LED grow light intensity is the only one that could be a drawback. And, that’s at the same time that it is a benefit. What that means is LED grow lights are intensely focused in their grow light system output. So, even though they are not “hot” like metal halide grow lights or high-pressure sodium grow lights, they still are in their own way.
It’s a type of grow light intensity that is so highly focused it has the potential to damage. And at the same time, this grow light system is so spot-focused that it can leave plants starved for light just one short row over. But, we can diffuse this LED grow light intensity in a very smart way. That’s by using LightRail light movers. We can use a single LightRail 3.5 Kit or we can expand with Add A Lamp Kits plus we can expand to multiple rows. And, we can do the same grow room design with LightRail 4.0 Kits. Whatever our grow room design, here is the change this makes to the grow room setup.
Better indoor plant light to more leaves and at just the correct period of time
Let’s put an LED grow light on a grow light mover and let’s move it just three feet (1m). Now, let’s visualize what just happened with that LED grow light intensity. Instead of having the indoor plant light beat down in one never-changing plant canopy area, we diffused it. And, at the same time, we made it better. For how to spread LED grow light power, it’s the only way to do that while keeping the LED grow light every bit as powerful. The indoor plant light pattern of grow light power is now penetrating to more of the middle and lower leaves as it angles in. And, the canopy area of grow light overkill is now evenly spread.
That’s with the grow light travel distance just about 18 inches in both directions from the center, so about 3 feet for total travel length. More canopy area and more middle and lower leaves are now receiving all that good quality LED grow light intensity. And, they are receiving that grow light system benefit at just the correct amount of time.
Like natural sunlight angles
This is an example of Leaf Area Index as it applies to receivable grow light system benefit. Grow light movers make it all very natural and sun-like. And, this is how plants have adapted over millions of years to best receive indoor plant light. The plant light receptors open more when the grow light is powerfully strong but intermittent. So, when our indoor plant lights are overhead strongly, then moved slightly off and then back overhead just as strong, that’s ideal. It simulates the slight changes of nearby branches in the wind or clouds going by and even the overall changes of natural sunlight angles.
Open receptors with better indoor plant light
This is the language of light that plants understand, and when we can re-create that, growth is much better and yields increase significantly. Conversely, if we take a powerful indoor grow light and beat it down on one spot of the canopy 12-18 hours a day, receptors are actually more likely to close. For powerfully strong LED grow lights, it’s a huge waste of grow light potential. So, maximizing our grow lights to best imitate natural sunshine is a priority. Grow light movers do that, absolutely. We diffuse LED grow light intensity when we move these grow lights on LightRail light movers. And, we harness this beautifully powerful grow light system with all of its benefits so that it reaches more leaf area. For how to best use LED grow lights, moving them on LightRail light movers is the answer.
Each and every leaf in our grow room or indoor greenhouse with grow lights is a potential worker for the good of the plant. So, that makes this very grow room setup or all season greenhouse a factory of workers. Do we have 100% of the leaves working in this factory or do we have 50%? And, what kind of difference would that make for the outcome?
The answer to that is LightRail light movers in conjunction with quality grow light systems positioned closer, bravely positioned within two feet of the canopy, will make growth outstanding and yield numbers take off. Remember, powerful and close while intermittent is the formula for exceptional results. And, as we look at how to diffuse LED grow light intensity; LightRail light movers are actually all about that. Grow light movers are the single best way to supercharge these quality grow light systems.
