Photonic Distribution Plot for TotalGrow's Broad Grow Spectrum
Summary of the Impacts of Photons of Various Wavelengths/Colors on Plants
TotalGrow’s Solid State Volumetric mixing of light has significant advantages:
  • Provides optimal light in the spectra that plants need most for efficient and healthy growth.
  • Incredible uniformity of light distribution over the plant grow area, eliminating hot and cold spots that inhibit uniform growth.
  • Designed to produce much better plant growth while using less wattage than competitive technologies.
  • Environmentally friendly Solid State Lighting Technology. (No heavy metal vapors, HAZMAT materials or neuro-toxins).
  • Contains no moving parts to eliminate noise vibration and maintenance.

High Pressure Sodium (HPS) Comparison Button High Pressure Sodium (HPS) Spectrum's Photonic Distribution
  • High Pressure Sodium bulbs generate predominantly green, yellow and orange emission peaks (based on the emission spectra of the elements inside).
  • Contains heavy metal vapors and toxic materials, which commonly include mercury and lead.
  • As bulbs reach end-of-life, they can require more electricity to produce less light.
  • Up to 50% of bulbs may burn out before they reach their lifetime hours rating.
  • Long warm-up periods can waste up to 15 minutes of energy consumption per light when first powered.
  • BLUE: The minimal blue light generation (400-499nm) means that the photomorphogenic responses controlling plant shape and many important pigments, such as antioxidant anthocyanins and coloration pigments, are not well stimulated.
  • GREEN/YELLOW: Most HPS output is in the green-yellow spectral region. This is a very inefficient region for plants when compared to blue and especially orange-red light, resulting in wasted energy.
  • RED: The minimal output in the red spectrum results in inefficient overall growth-stimulating light output.
