LED grow lights have made it very easy to simulate daylight and they are now employed by growers around the world. LEDs have no doubt made a key resurgence in this digital age of farming. They are energy conservative compared to the outdated HID growing lights which mean they cost less to run. However, full spectrum LED grow lights contain diodes that emit light which is actively photosynthetic. This implies that, LEDs should not be used during the period plants are meant to believe it is night time, else you stand the chance of facing the hazards it brings on the health of your plants. Even traditional fluorescent bulbs are capable of producing light that will interfere with your plants’ natural day and night cycle.
