If ever there was an indoor grow light made as a perfect match for LightRail light movers, it’s the Gavita indoor grow light. The LightRail Gavita combination is absolute perfection when it comes to grow equipment results. And, here is how that works.
The LightRail Gavita combination allows good grow lights to turn into the best grow lights they can be.
Positioned high, we are turning a good indoor grow light system into an average one
Gavita grow light systems are intense. Overall, that’s what we want from our indoor grow lights, an intense indoor plant light of quality. But, what is seen as a positive grow equipment detail can also do harm if we’re not careful. Specifically, an intense grow light system can give us hot spots and burn, no matter the grow room setup. This is why Gavita grow light systems suggest their grow lamps to be positioned several feet above the plant canopy. At several feet high, however, we are likely turning a good indoor grow light system into an average indoor grow light system. It’s an Inverse Square Law thing and we’ll get into that below. So how do we make this work without losing the strength and ppfd of our good quality grow lamps? There is only way around this grow equipment dilemma.
There is nothing natural about that
Stationary grow light systems give us hot spots and shadows. In other words, we have nothing but extremes and there is nothing natural about that. But, we are not slaves to the stationary grow light system rules. We no longer have to place the grow lamps high enough to avoid the hot spots. I mean, there’s a point where we are turning a good quality indoor grow light into nothing more than some version of a street lamp.
Light equals yield so why are we doing this?
And, back to the Inverse Square Law data and how it applies. Inverse Square Law for the grow room setup addresses the geometrically diminishing strength of indoor plant light the farther away it is positioned. And, at five feet above the plant canopy, we are losing 50% of the power and strength of our grow light systems. So, that’s simply wasted PAR and ppfd, and it’s wasted potential. Light equals yield so why are we doing this?
The LightRail Gavita combination lets us keep our indoor grow lights closer
The answer is we don’t have to do this. We are smarter than stationary ways. And, the LightRail Gavita combination lets us bypass the burn while we get maximum PAR and ppfd from our indoor plant light. The LightRail Gavita combination lets us keep our indoor grow lights closer to the canopy as part of our grow room setup. And, how this works is the grow light mover doesn’t allow the indoor grow system intensity to over-do it for any select canopy areas.
Maximum PAR with even ppfd right to the canopy
So, when there are no longer the hot spots or zones of light overkill, we can drop the grow lamps of our indoor growing systems to be closer. And, only then can we get maximum PAR right to the canopy. We then have the best grow lights we can have. And, we have done the opposite of moving them farther away, as stationary lights require, which does nothing but dilute their potential.
It’s the only way to get all the leaves efficiently working for the plant
The LightRail Gavita combination also gives us another advantage to our Gavita indoor plant light. And, this indoor grow system advantage is as important for your grow equipment results. By moving our indoor grow light along the light mover rail, we achieve the following. More of our plant surfaces are now making contact with the indoor plant light. And, this grow lamp interaction is happening at just the correct amount of time for each leaf area. This is more like nature and it’s called Leaf Area Index for the indoor grow system. And, it’s the only way to get all the leaves efficiently working for the plant.
The LightRail Gavita combination is a combination of logic
So, we combine this with the closer positioned Gavita grow lights, and we have this. We have turned our Gavita indoor grow system into the best grow lights they can be. LightRail light movers make that possible. This is the case for LightRail 3.5 Kits, LightRail 4.0 Kits and LightRail 4.20 Kits. So, the LightRail Gavita combination is a combination of logic. Closer, better grow lamp interaction right to the canopy and to more of the leaves, intermittently, is the key. LightRail light movers supercharge Gavita grow lamps to be their best. And, when grow lamps are maximized, growth rates are faster and yield numbers increase significantly. Again, light equals yield. So, this is why Gavita grow light systems should always be moved. Really good grow lights turn into the best grow lights when they are positioned closer, and each moved on a grow light mover.
