Everything you need to know about upgrading from a blurple grow light to a LED quantum board. Quantum boards are the best indoor grow lights on the market for any level of gardener. Quantum boards using Samsung LM301B diodes output full spectrum light unlike other LEDs like Blurples.
Your plants will use more nutrients overall nutrients
When you replace a blurple grow light with a quantum board you are increasing the overall light intensity hitting your plants, both in pure wattage and in full light spectrum. No matter what stage of growth your plants are in, they will likely require an increase in nutrients, primarily nitrogen (N) and likely PK as well. You will also notice that you will need to water more frequently.
Your quantum board might produce more heat if you’ve also increased wattage
When replacing a burple grow light you are often increasing the actual wattage being drawn from your wall outlet and therefor more wattage hitting your plants. Because Quantum Boards use the highest output Samsung lm310b diode it is possible that more overall heat can be produced in comparison to your blurple light.
Two light spectrum’s verses a full light spectrum
It was originally theorized that lights only required two specific light spectrums – blue and red. The LED lights that are in blurple lights have been specifically manufactured to output the blue and red light spectrum’s. Additional research has proven that lights use up nearly all light from the overall light spectrum, green being the least readily available and one the primary reason most leafs are green.
Your plants may go through an initial shock period
By increasing the wattage, light spectrum and light intensity it’s likely your plants will go throw a mild shock period. Your garden will also likely absorb more nutrients to better protect and repair the plant cell walls that are being hit with a more intense, full light.
Quantum Boards offer a higher intensity light output
Quantum boards are the best indoor grow lights on the market for small, medium and large scale indoor gardens. Quantum boards using Samsung LM301B diodes output full spectrum light unlike other LEDs like Blurples. If you are just growing for fun or a more experienced gardener the Niemi LED Quantum Boards will deliver the light output necessary to grow in amazing indoor garden.
