LadyBugg Lights is a manufacture of high power LED grow light systems. This website is our only direct retail sales method. Every unit comes with a 2-year limited warranty and is equipped with a 10-foot umbilical cord for the purpose of keeping the power supply heat out of the growing area. Every unit is tested for 72 hours before leaving our factory.
Our lights are designed with the forethought of delivering the maximum usable light a plant needs to grow and flower. We have exclusively tested our lights growing hemp. Our end goal is to produce high quality lights that are affordable to the hobbyist, professional and commercial indoor farmers.
The wattage listed for all LED lights is the actual wattage the unit consumes, there are no equivalents or deceptive power ratting.
Because LED lights are made of diodes that produce a very specific wavelength they just can't honestly be compared with traditional HID/HPS lighting, which are electrically excited gas trapped in a glass tube. This means the spectrum is defined by the wavelengths specific to that gas. In other words, you get what you get. Plants grow well when given the wavelengths (colors) that stimulate their growth. There is a significant amount of power lost in traditional lights due to the plant not needing the wavelengths they generate, and even worse they produce heat that ultimately will need to be dissipated as not to cause the room, tent, or greenhouse to overheat.
Plants absorb specific wavelengths which promotes these areas of their development:
200nm-280nm UVC ultraviolet range tends to be extremely harmful to plants.
280nm-315nm UVB, an intermediate ultraviolet wavelength is harmful and will causes plants colors to fade.
315nm-380nm UVA, the wavelength that causes tanning in humans is neither harmful nor beneficial to plant growth.
380nm-400nm The sorter wavelength of the visible light spectrum. Process of chlorophyll absorption begins.
400nm-520nm This is a very plant usable range of the violet, blue, and green bands. Peak absorption of chlorophyll occurs via photosynthesis, and and is the main promoter of vegetative growth.
520nm-610nm Is mainly a dead range (green, yellow, and orange) because it has less absorption by pigments.
610nm-720nm This red wavelength is the main absorption by chlorophyll, and most significant promoter of flowering/budding.
720nm-1000nm Absorption by chlorophyll is generated very little; flowering and germination, however is influenced. The low end of this frequency is unwanted heat, IR.
1000nm and below is IR and is nothing but unwanted heat.
Full Spectrum LED's use 70% Red, 20% Blue, 10% other spectrum colors which cover 380nm-840nm. Research has shown the best results with this coverage over years of trial and error. We personally tested and find these results very much promote the vegetation and flower stage of cannabis.
We also incorporate warm white (found to be very useful in flowering) and soft white (useful for vegging).
Red light is important to plant reproduction. Photochromy pigments absorb the red and deep red portions of the light spectrum and regulate seed germination, root development, tuber and bulb formation, dormancy, flowering and fruit production.
Royal blue light stimulates Chlorophyll production more than any other wavelength and encouraging thick leaves, strong stems and robust vegetative growth.
