47" Full Spectrum Plus "Hooded" LEDs (Medium Light Requirement Plants)

A sensible approach to medium light requiring plants. Perfect for slippers and some phalaenopsis etc. These are double row PCBs of our normal 48″ LEDs shrank down to just under 47" so they will fit neatly into a 48" rack. Double rows and increased power with a reflector hood!

It’s important to start your orchids and plants out right. That’s what you can do with our Full Spectrum Plus LEDs. These LEDs are designed specifically for growing orchids and other houseplants. They are NOT LEDs from a big box store that are adapted for growing orchids and plants.

What is the difference you might wonder? It’s the spectrum and housing. Our spectrum is a Full Spectrum plus the addition of Red LEDs along with a housing that compliments our rigorous requirements for the botanical environment. These LEDs are 2:1. 2 parts full spectrum white light (6500k) to one part Red LED. The advantage of this Red LED (660 nm) is chlorophyll strongly absorbs the red light given off of the LEDs and it can stimulate flowering. Therefore our LEDs are full spectrum and also have additional Red. All of our of our LEDs now have 10%+ Far RED (730 nm).

This doesn’t mean the light is pink or red. To the contrary. The light that comes off of these LEDs is white. If you looked directly at the LEDs when it is on (you should never do this) you would see some of the LEDs are red, but when you put your hand under the light it is white. The best of both worlds!

46.5″ 27 watts. We do not make these in any other size

1. Optimized Spectrum- We have a proven spectrum that works. Thousands of these LEDs have been sold and customers love the results they are getting with a multitude of various plants.

2. Water Resistant- They can get damp and they are OK.

3. Low Energy Consumption- Each LED only uses a fraction of energy compared to traditional florescent tubing or bulbs.

4. 120 Degree Beam Angle- The light coming out from the LED is dispersed 120 degrees to help provide even coverage on your growing space.

5. Daisy Chainable- Connect multiple LEDs together either by connecting them to themselves or by using our jumper cords while only using 1 power cord.

6. Low Heat Emitting- You can touch them while running and they are only warm to the touch.

7. Lightweight and Easy to Hang- Each LED weighs only several ounces.

8. An amazing 192 chips- That’s right. 192 chips to deliver the optimal spectrum to your plants.

9. Long Life- The expected lifespan of the LED is 50,000 hours of operation. Running 16 hours per day will use 5,840 hours per year. They are expected to degrade less than 10% in 3 years. I suggest replacement every 5 years.

I personally grow my orchids on bakers racks or wire racks. Mine are 18″ deep and 48″ wide. I use 2 47″ LEDs per shelf, connect each pair with one jumper cable per shelf. The one jumper cable will connect the two LEDs on one shelf together for the Hooded LEDs. That means I'm only using 1 power cord per 2 Hooded LEDs.

I keep these LEDs approximately 10″-11″ above my orchids. These LEDs are primarily used to grow medium light requiring orchids and plants. I’m able to consistently rebloom them each year without and problems. Other orchids that have bloomed and grown under these LEDs over the last year include: Cattleya, Dendrobium, Carnivorous Plants, Phalaenopsis, Paphs and many more!

Here is what I would recommend based on my own experiences and several other users of these LEDs who have successfully bloomed orchids. This should be your starting point and you can adjust from here. If you are unsure it is always better to start higher and then lower after a few weeks or a month. We also recommend you start at 11-12 hours and gradually increase your hours by 1 hour per month until you max out at 16 hours during the summer and then decrease in the winter back to 12 or 13 hours. This is up to you.

The LED of course, 2 Hanger brackets per LED to clip onto the LED to aid with hanging it. You can then use a Zip tie, nylon rope or chains to hang them, Along with this you will also receive 1 power cord.
