Hybrid Grow Light Solutions & Hydroponics

How to: Get better results with Hybrid Grow Light Solutions. Save energy, Indoor Gardening, and in the Greenhouse, with improved yields and quality by combining Induction and/or HID grow lights with LED grow lights designed with specific frequencies that will elicit specifc growth and flowering responses.

 Mixing up lamps for optimal and Hybrid Grow Light Solutions:

In a world of ever changing Grow Lighting Options it is becomes more obvious that a case can be made to suggest that, in some instances, no single light source supplies the full spectrum and intensity that "all" specie with higher lighting demands may require. Additionally, it is certain that manipulation of lighting spectra can strongly effect growth, fruit and flowering responses. Overall the Inda-Gro Lights work well as stand alone lighting without hybridizing.

Consider: Combining different types of lights to achieve optimal results and save energy.

HID, Metal Halide, High Pressure Sodium:

Fire up the 600 or 1000Watt HID you possess as supplemental lighting for 1 to 3 hours at the "mid-day" of their lighting cycle, with Inda-Gro or WX-C Series grow lights runninf for the entire "day", to more reasonably simulate the greater intensity of the mid-day sunlight.

Inda-Gro ProPAR Series Grow Lights: 

Work beautifully as a stand alone lights. Inda-Gro Magnetic Induction or EFDL Grow Lights are the state of art lighting choice for this form of lighting, broad spectrum with specific active trigger points provided to insure extremely healthy, quality results. Some clients choose to use the LED side lighting, T-5's, T-8's, or CFL's they already own supplementally.  Learn more, slide shows & videos!

  •  The Pro420PAR Light: This unit uses a scant 420 Watts and may produce as much growth as 750 Watts of MH and flowers and fruit similar to 600 Watts of HPS, many report better results.

  •  The Pro200PAR Light: Great for smaller applications or to fill in areas requiring added illumination.

  •  The Pro 100 Light: Excelent for small applications, for starts and cloning, to provide underlighting.

The Discrete Spectra LED Series:

The "World's First Indoor/Outdoor IP65 Grow Lamps"! A fresh approach to grow lighting, these 10 and 20 Watt "Micro Lights" are designed to generate specific growth, flowering and fruiting responses in plants with the use of specific frequencies and combinations.

  •  The Flower Initiator Lamp: With "Short Day" plants the Flower Initiator, a FAR RED phytochrome trigger, allows the intense early initiation or instigation of flowering, and these lamps can be used Indoors enabling an extension of "daylight" photoperiod by 1.5 to 2 hours, or 13.5 to 14 hours, thereby increasing yields and quality by 10% or more. Growers are getting stellar results using our Inda-GRO Pro420PAR lights with the addition of The Flower Initiator, these will also complement any form of currently used grow lighting, T-5's, HID or LED individually or in hybrid combinations.

  •  Indoors: Throughout the entire Flowering/Fruit phase use a separate timer set to come on at "lights out" and allow it to run for a total of 5-10 minutes. Once your flowers are initiated, you might increase your lit period to 13.5 to 14 hours to get even bigger yields. Use this only at the end of your lit period, use during daylight is generally believed to benefit Long Day plant flower development and can hinder short day Flower/fruit development, and cause stretching.

  •  Greenhouse and Outdoors: With Short Day plants that flower when the night reaches 12 hours in length, The Flower Initiator can be used once your local Night period reaches 10.5 to 11 hours in length, the plants will respond as if the nights is 12.5 - 13 hours long, causing a rapid onset of flowering, without the use of curtains or shades, again, your plants will receive a longer lighting period and greater yields. This is most a most critical advancement when situated in the more northern latitudes.

  •  With Long Day Plants: The FI can be used, perhaps, in combination with other lighting, to accelerate an early growth period, in effect, to extend the length of the daylit period and to maintain the proper phytochrome state so as to bring on flowering earlier. By doing so the flowers and resultant fruit can develop and mature earlier than the norm, increasing yields and quality and then coming to fruition earlier in the fall or winter than normal, thereby avoiding and reducing the many diseases associated with wet weather.

  •  The Blue Blaster Lamp: Can be used to identify the sex of plants without bringing them into full on flowering, by simply running this micro light all night long, throughout the dark period, while your plants are in a long lit cycle of 14-18 hours. Plants will show sufficiently to identify sexual characteristics to provide for an earlier pollination or to single out the sex of unwanted or excess plants earlier on.This works well if one starts plants earlier than seasonal in the greenhouse.

  •  The E-Effect Lamp: When plants are exposed to both short and long wavelengths at the same time, the efficiency is increased greatly. Emerson concluded that there must be two different photo systems involved in photosynthesis, one driven by short-wavelength light and one driven by long-wavelength. Later research identified that 660nm (670nm) and 690nm (700nm) work together to enhance efficiency and convert the light energy to forms that can be absorbed by the plant.

The WX-C 150 Watt LED Series Grow Light:

  •  The WX-C 150 Standard: 150 Watts of Broad Band Spectrum LED Grow Lighting offers great, highly penetrating, light for Indoor and Greenhouse supplementation. Two additional Spectrum Booster variations are offered... 

  •  The WX-C 150 RED Booster: This is a great enhancement of intense RED Spectrum when the current predominant lamp you are using is not producing the rate of production in growth, flowering or fruiting that you wish to get.

  •  The WX-C 150 BLUE Booster:  During the growth phase these work well with many grow lights to increase yields. Additional Blue can reduce stretching and promote tighter internodel structures, especially supplementing HPS lamps. Blue light is most beneficial with early starts, during early growth and for stout compact growth. Blue light rays, have the highest penetration in seawater, and therefore the greatest efficiency.

The Way Forward: "There are many ways to skin a cat", we provide hybrid solutions that may yield far superior results and than with one type of lighting alone, while saving energy too!                                       W.Boune
