Venture Lighting – Metal Halide Grow Lamp
The Venture Metal Halide Lamp is a light source for use during the vegetative stage. The colour temperature is great for encouraging vigorous growth and helps keep plants stocky and bushy. The idea is that the light is a “cooler” colour and simulates the sun during spring and summer. This is when the sun is higher in the sky and the plant naturally reacts with a strong growth period. When your plants are ready to bloom, switch the lamp for a red one. This sends a signal to the plant that the sun is lower and it thinks it is coming into Autumn. The plant changes its processes to get the fruit ready in order to spread seeds. By using a halide lamp, you are tuning into plant responses that are the result of millions of years of evolution.
