The biologists and other staff at TotalGrow have a passion for science. More specifically, a passion for pursuing a better way of growing, living and working together. From universities to elementary schools, commercial greenhouses to home growers, we are happy to work with you in a variety of formats to learn together.
The unique SSVL Technology and particular lighting designs behind TotalGrow lighting allows a truly unique ability to create custom solutions, including an incredible level of spectral control. Contact us with projects, problems and ideas to begin working together today!
Monochromatic TotalGrow Research Lamp Spectra
West Virginia University:
Lettuce, kale, tomatoes, basil, petunias - Light source testing
All plants we have tested (petunia, basil, and tomato) looked healthier under your TotalGrow™ lighting and used far less energy than the competing light sources.

Ohio State University Agricultural Technical Institute:
Bedding plant propagation, 143W TotalGrow vs. 400+ W HPS test
TotalGrow™ lights demonstrated the potential for drastic energy savings over HPS lights while producing crops of equal or better quality in our bedding plant testing. With 20% less PAR light intensity, our primrose plugs grew over 33% wider and taller with better green pigmentation than HPS.
Robert McMahon, Ph.D., Horticultural Technologies Professor Emeritus
In a controlled experiment, our Vanda seedlings grew larger and stronger than seedlings grown under natural light. In some instances as much as 40% increase in mass was observed. The additional growth was most evident in the increased root mass of the seedlings grown under TotalGrow™ light, perhaps as a result of the photosynthetic ability of orchid roots. Based on our experience at Motes Orchids, I can recommend TotalGrow™ lights to any grower as a benefit under low light conditions.

Custom monochromatic LED light bulb development
TotalGrow™ provided 10 different peak wavelength monochromatic LED lamps to facilitate spectral research at Purdue University.
Kalamazoo Specialty Plants:
Mum flowering control tests
TotalGrow™ Night & Day Management Light bulbs were very effective at controlling flowering times across a large collection of my mum varieties this fall. The lights will allow me to greatly reduce my power consumption compared to my existing HPS lights with better plant quality.

Perennials propagation, HPS replacement test with 1/3 power
We completed growing tests using the Venntis Technologies TotalGrow™ light fixtures. We tested several varieties of perennials and our results showed similar plant vigor and health while reducing our energy consumption.
Troy Shumaker, CFO
Mud Lake Farm:
Hydroponic lettuce & herbs
We tested a prototype TotalGrow light last fall (2012) in a direct contest with a HPS (400 Watt). Both were located in the same grow area and with the same nutrient inputs. We were very pleased with the results; not only did the TotalGrow light outperform the HPS by 10%, but it did so using far less energy. This fall, we invested in enough lights to fill a greenhouse. They came with a custom designed layout so that we know we are maximizing the useable light over our plants. We fully intend to switch over all our greenhouses over the next few years. For us, TotalGrow lights last longer and use less energy and give better yields- it just makes sense.

Third Coast Medical Marijuana Dispensary:
Veg testing - 143W TotalGrow vs. 432W Fluorescent
The TotalGrow plant is superior. The root growth is almost double the fluorescent. Plant growth in height and girth is about 10% better.

Pacific Ag Research:
Canola plant flowering
Our canola plants had excellent flowering responses under our TotalGrow™ Night & Day Management Lights. The lights look good and are easy to work with.
