We are growing some flowers in a small greenhouse just for hobby purpose. These flowers are light sensitive plants and they need extended light hours for their buds to turn into flowers. I had researched a bit with respect to the light requirements of the flower and come to a conclusion that LED grow light will be best fit for our requirement. What we had found
(1) Out of the whole light spectrum, red and blue spectrum are most required for increasing the photosynthesis period of plant in order to increase its growth and
(2) Extended period of light is required for flowering.
There was much more information available regarding the type of artificial lights available, which we can use, their advantages and disadvantages. In the end we finalize LED grow light. But when we asked their price in the market, it was quite high. Is their any other alternative of them, a cheap one which we can use?
Can some one guide us on the same.
Thanks in Advance.
