The Supplemental bars adjustable spectrum
The Hortimol LE90A model consists of 2 additional UV B and Far Red LED bars. It has been specially developed to provide additional UV and far-red light to extend the light spectrum provided by other light sources like Hortimol MG6 480w & MG8 660w. The unique design of the bars provides bilateral luminescence with a wide beam angle that allows even distribution on each plant. Designed to be mounted on MG6 and MG8 fittings, the adjustable mounting accessories allow it to be adapted to a large number of LED models on the market.
- Adjustable mounting accessories for compatibility with other brands such as Fluence, Gavita, Lumatek, etc.
- Bilateral luminescence with a wide beam angle
- Switch for separate activation of UV or Far Red spectra
- Bars can be easily replaced
UV 385nm + FR 730nm
The best possible combination
Ultraviolet light is very beneficial for plant growth and in the potential reduction of disease. For plants, the UV growth spectrum in combination with the IR spectrum gives responses that are very similar to blue light and significantly stimulates photosynthesis.
By inducing healthy stress in plants, UV/FR bars can encourage them to produce their own natural 'sunscreens' (protective compounds). For example, plants develop more trichomes, terpenes, new metabolites and even color variations.
Healthy plant naturally protects itself from parasites
The latest scientific research has shown that plants have specific photoreceptors for UV radiation. Regulated exposure at the right intensity and for the right period also results in healthier, more resistant plants. There is an increase in the thickness of the leaves and cell walls, making plants less sensitive to insects and moulds thanks to the presence of this thicker natural shield. The use of UV light therefore makes it possible to reduce the use of phytosanitary products such as insecticides and fungicides.
UV+IR : A new era is starting
We don't yet know why plants react to the presence of UV andAs decades of practical experience in greenhouse and indoor cultivation have shown, it is entirely possible to grow plants successfully without UV B and Far Red components in the spectrum. However, by re-supplying these wavelengths where they are not naturally available, growers can not only mitigate the risks, but also and above all increase the taste, smell and even the potency of the product grown. In short, increase overall quality!
