How do grow light systems work with light movers in a hydroponic lighting setup? What’s different about a light mover hydro grow kit? And, what are the indoor grow system advantages?
First, hydroponics is efficient and it’s a water saver. We can use up to 90% less water in our indoor grow system with hydroponics. And, hydroponics makes it much more likely that the indoor grow equipment will be automated. Grow room automation makes human error less likely. And, it fine tunes our successes so we see much better grow equipment results.
Now, as we add grow light movers to our hydroponic lighting, we become even more efficient. Our indoor grow lights moving along the light mover rail maximizes our growing equipment. And, it maximizes the results including faster growth and much better yields. The light mover hydro grow kit gives us the best of everything.
Without any hot spots in the grow light system, we can get the grow lamps closer
The advantage of our grow light system moving with light movers is fairly simple to explain. When we move our indoor grow lights, they more closely mimic the sun. So, there are no longer any stationary grow lamp hot spots which can severely stress plants by stunting growth and decreasing yield. And, because there are no longer any hot spots in the grow light system, we can get the grow lamps closer.
We can get seriously high PAR and ppfd readings right to the canopy
This is all about Inverse Square Law and it’s a way to get a better quality indoor grow light interaction. And, that closer grow light system state is also more like the sun in that we now have a powerful grow light system. So, it’s now ready to get the job done. We can get seriously high PAR and ppfd readings right to the canopy. But, we can only get this kind of grow equipment success (see grow light ppfd chart comparison) when the indoor plant light is moving. So, we are duplicating the actions of the sun and that is the smartest thing we can do for our grow light system.
Light equals yield
Another advantage of the light mover hydro grow kit is found in the working leaves. Now, all the mid and lower leaves are getting that closer, more powerful indoor plant light. This is true whether we are using a LightRail 3.5 Kit, a LightRail 4.0 Kit or a LightRail 4.20 Kit. So, those multiple non-canopy leaves are now working hard and for the good of the plant. This grow equipment detail is significant. And, that angled indoor grow light reaching
more leaves is seriously efficient for speed of growth and for high yield numbers. Light equals yield. And, better light to more leaves is a beautiful thing. This is an example of Leaf Area Index, a very egg-heady thing to know in depth. But, our eyes can actually see this change easily enough when we have a more powerful light coming in at angles. We can literally see the leaves fire up. Check out these videos for a good example of that indoor grow light interaction.

And, check out the photo to the right where all the mid and lower leaves are literally lit up. That photo is all under one grow light mover. Even with multiple indoor grow lights that are stationary, we could not get that kind of close and powerful grow lamp interaction. And, this photo is looking from three feet under the dense canopy.
The light mover hydro grow kit gives us the best of all variables
The light mover hydro grow kit gives us the best of all variables. We have the indoor grow equipment predictability of automation. And, that includes the automation of the grow light system. And, we have the efficiency of the hydro grow kit needing up to 90% less water compared to other indoor grow systems. We also have the huge advantages that come from moving our grow light systems on light movers. It’s simply a closer, more powerful indoor plant light. Plus, that more powerful indoor grow light is reaching more of the leaves. That’s how the sun works and this is simply the best way to duplicate that.
