One of the quickest and easiest ways to boost your yield is to upgrade your grow lights. You can’t go wrong with a Gavita or Dimlux grow light – they’re our advanced lighting systems.
Here are some of the questions people ask about them.
Why are advanced grow lights better?
Ultimately, they’ll give you a far better yield, especially if you opt for a 1000W lighting system.
Are they worth the investment?
It depends on how much the extra yield is worth. Normally, the answer is yes.
How much of a yield increase can I expect?
It depends on your existing lights and how much extra plant usable light you’re getting. A 1% increase in light roughly results in a 1% increase in yield.
Who should use advanced lighting systems?
Anyone who’s got the space for them looking to increase their yield. Commercial growers across Holland use Gavita lights. We’ve got some really nice pictures of them being used to grow tulips.
What’s the best way to use them?
They’re best used in closed loop set-ups, where you have complete control over your climate (e.g. temperature, humidity, CO2 level). Your yield will be incredible.
How high should I hang my advanced grow lights?
Advanced lighting systems should be fixed to the top of your grow tent. Plants grow into the intensity.
Where’s the Dimlux Ballast?
Rather than having a separate ballast and reflector, Dimlux lights feature an all in one ballast and reflector unit.
Do you have to use lights with a controller?
No – you don’t have to use them, but it’s better to. Controllers.
Can I use a Dimlux Controller with Gavita lights?
Sadly not. Dimlux controllers are only compatible with Dimlux lights. Gavita controllers are only compatible with Gavita lights.
