Q5: How do LED grow lights work?

Column:FAQ Time:2018-07-11

A5 Answer: It is a good idea to understand the most fundamental question when looking to buy an LED grow light; what is an LED? LEDs create light through a phenomenon called electroluminescence, where electricity passing through a silicon semiconductor junction results in the creation of photons. Unlike every other grow lighting technology, LEDs do not require heat and/or mercury to create light for use in an LED grow light or other applications such as headlights for your car.
