A suitable HPS lamp for every hobby grow!
Every good hobby grower uses a grow light. They also sometimes say "light is weight". The traditional and most reliable lighting is still the HPS light. HPS stands for High Pressure Sodium lamps.
An HPS light is available in multiple spectrum variants. This means that they can be suitable for growth, flowering or both. Sodium lamps emit a recognizable sheet of yellow light.
Advantages of HPS Lighting
- An HPS bulb is relatively inexpensive to buy compared to other grow lights.
- For years the choice of the general hobby grower.
- Saves on heating equipment.
HPS bulbs are available in different wattages, in order to make a suitable setup for each type of cultivation. HPS lamps are normally available in 250 Watt, 400 Watt, 600 Watt and 1000 Watt. Some brands of HPS lighting sometimes want to deviate from these standard wattages.
When it comes to choice, the range of HPS lighting is quite wide. Many well-known lighting brands have also focused on grow lights, such as Philips and Osram. These brands often appear in agriculture. Other brands have specialized in only HPS lighting, such as Prima Klima Sunkraft, Spectro light and Lumii. If you have any doubts about which HPS bulb suits your culture, you can always contact our specialized team.
With a grow light only, your grow setup is not complete yet. A complete lighting set consists at least of a ballast (vsa) and a reflector.
HPS lamps are also quite hot, therefore air extraction and possible supply by means of a good extraction is very important.
