Cultivate Tech fixtures use a unique blend of high quality LED diodes that target the exact spectrum of light plants crave and that are essential to plant growth and flowering. LED technology allows us to direct energy to only the spectrum plants need with little to no waste. More traditional lighting sources, such as HPS, require a tremendous amount of heat energy to achieve the same goal, a lot of which is of no use to the plants and wasted. Not to mention the additional heat is damaging to the plants and requires room cooling, further increasing energy consumption. Using a more targeted approach, Cultivate Tech LED fixtures achieve the same goal with 50% or greater energy savings than HPS or metal halide fixtures.
