This Lumii Black Lamp is a 600w Dual Spectrum, High Pressure Sodium (HPS) Lamp. It gives off enough red and blue light so can be used in vegetation and flower. It is an essential for stimulating enhanced flowering giving out up to a massive out 88,000 Lumens and can last for up to 20,000 hours. It has an E40 fitting and for best results we recommend using alongside a Lumii ballast.
Lumii Black range
Lumii BLACK is the budget range of horticultural lighting. It has been designed at affordable prices but still with all the same quality you are used to seeing from Lumii’s great products. The range consists of two 600 W ballasts (ONE 600 W magnetic and one adjustable 600 W electronic), a Dutch-Barn Style Euro Reflector and a 600 W HPS Lamp. This all comes to you at a very competitive price, with HydroGarden’s signature reliability, returns and service.
Light is the most important environmental factor to consider, whether you are growing indoors or out. Depending on where you live and where you want to garden, the sun will not always be there for you. With the right grow light, you can grow literally any plant, anywhere and at any time, therefore making gardening a year-round hobby.
All LUMii lamps are designed to promote optimum development at each growth stage, with high output and a long lamp life. Both HPS and CFL lamps are available from LUMii.
What is HID lighting?
High Intensity Discharge (HID) lighting replaces the filament of a light bulb with a capsule of gas. The light emanates from an arc discharge between two closely spaced electrodes. This discharge is hermetically sealed inside a small quartz glass tubular capsule. HID lights require a ballast, which carefully regulates the voltage supplied to the capsule of gas.
The following types of HID are commonly used:
Metal Halide (MH): Produces light predominantly blue in colour. This is ideal for strong vegetative growth (e.g. larger leaves, thicker stems) and a shorter, dense plant which will utilize light more efficiently.
High Pressure Sodium (HPS): Produces more red light. This promotes flower onset and production and is, therefore, more suited to the flowering/fruiting phase.
Unfortunately, MH and HPS lamps each require a different ballast and lamp holder. Therefore, it is common practice to use a HPS lamp for both vegetative and flowering – especially if plants have a very short vegetative phase. However, using HPS throughout can promote tall and spindly growth in many species.
Why is red and blue light important?
Blue light is very important. Without at least some amount of blue light, most plants won’t grow normally. The plant has several different ways it measures blue light, and they each have their own effects. For example, when you see a plant growing towards the light, it’s actually only responding to just the blue light. Without any blue, the plant wouldn’t know where to grow! Blue light also has an effect on how stems and leaves tend to grow. Seedlings and plants given plenty of blue light tend to stay short, with short stems and squat growth. They tend to grow big leaves and spread them out. It’s often recommended for gardeners to use bright white fluorescents or metal halide grow lights during the vegetative stage since the extra levels of blue help keep young plants from growing tall and lanky, and encourages lots of leafy growth.
We can see red light of course, but generally humans can’t see far-red (infrared) light, although we can feel it as heat. Plants, on the other hand, can sense both red and far-red light. Red light is probably the most important type of light for plants. When it comes to photosynthesis, plants are best able to make energy out of red light. In fact, many plants can actually grow even if they only get pure red light, though they won’t grow as big or as healthy as they do under full spectrum light. Every type of grow light, even ones that are rich in blue like metal halides, provide quite a bit of red light. However, when it comes to red and far-red light as far as signals (not photosynthesis), it’s not the amount as much as the ratio of red to far-red that’s important to the plant! For the purposes of the plant and its response to light spectrum, red light is ~660nm and far-red light is ~730nm on the light color spectrum.
