Horticulture Lighting 101

When it comes to horticulture lighting, the top light is king. That’s because your top light is basically the sun’s understudy, shining the full spectrum of light down onto your plants. The thing to remember about LED grow lights is:

Lumens are for humans – Photons are for plants.

So, while lumens tell you how bright a bulb will appear in your kitchen or living room, the photosynthetic photon flux – aka PPF – tells you how much light that’s useful for photosynthesis a light emits. That plant-friendly light (called PAR for photosynthetically active radiation) falls within a very specific wavelength range. And we designed our HTM lighting to maximize that range!

As for PPE – aka photosynthetic photon efficiency – TCP’s HTM lighting solutions come out on top again! This refers to how efficient a light is at converting electricity into PAR, and our LED horticulture grow lights are some of the most energy-efficient choices out there.
