Types of grow box lighting from Coffeeshop®
Home lighting equipment for growing marijuana crops consists of a lamp, a luminaire and a ballast. The light source is chosen based on the size of the grow box and the number of bushes calculated. For example, for small tents, compact LEDs will do, but in larger boxes you can put sodium lamps, or even better - both options.
To come out a healthy plant, you will need two types of lighting:
- For the vegetative period, growth - 6000-6500 K (cold, white light).
- For flowering - 2700-3000 K (warm, yellow-orange).
When calculating lighting, don't skimp on the number of fixtures. If there is not enough light for cannabis, the crop will not mature, and if there is too much, it will not affect its health, only the electricity bill. Our managers can help you accurately calculate the number and wattage of lamps you need.
LED plant lights are great for home greenhouses, so they are gaining popularity among owners of compact grow boxes. LED lights are easy to install, but that's not all of their advantages.
- LEDs almost do not heat up, which means it is not necessary to remove the excess heat from the grow box.
- The lamps give off a directional beam of light, so they don't need reflectors.
- Long service life. One bulb lasts up to 50,000 hours.
- Saving. Of all the options available to growers, this type of lamp "eats" the least energy when working. The best option for practical growers.
- LEDs are often equipped with a remote control that allows you to adjust the intensity of illumination.
Sodium diatrium lamps
DNAT lamps for greenhouses are arc sodium tubular lighting elements. Buy lighting for a growbox from such lamps want all fans of economical and efficient grovelling. DNAT have an increased luminous flux and are perfect for growing plants throughout the cycle. The peculiarity of DNAT is the type of connection. Such a lamp cannot be simply plugged into a socket. To start it, you need a ballast. In our online store you can buy everything for growing marijuana in a greenhouse with DNAT lighting: a choke, a capacitor, a pulse-ignition device, a lamp for distributing radiation and the lamp itself.
Older growers prefer to combine LEDs and DNATs. Sodium lamps are recommended to be placed at the top of the greenhouse, supplementing their work with LED panels placed on the sides. Such a combination provides plants with sufficient light at all stages of growth and will save significantly on light bills.

Some growers put regular household energy-saving bulbs in boxes and tents in hopes of saving money on lighting for marijuana. We don't recommend following this path: energy-saving bulbs contain mercury, which is dangerous to both you and your crop. You'll have to change each bulb at least twice in one cycle, plus you'll need a separate reflector for each source. It's much healthier, safer and ultimately cheaper to buy professional home grovelling lighting from Coffeeshop® online store.
