1. Why You Need a Telos LED

    Spider-style, multi-bar LEDs, like the Maxibright Daylight, are all the rage at the minute. They do, however, come with a stumbling block, in that they can often be quite difficult to work around. The same properties that give spider-style fixtures great footprints and heat dissipation also make them more cumbersome. Leaning over them to adjust height settings can often require a step ladder, and the greater the number of lights in your grow space, the more of a problem it can become.

    That’s one of the main reasons why there’s a place

  2. Getting the Best Out of Your LEDs This Winter

    LED grow lighting has really come of age in the last couple of years, and most growers have made the switch from legacy HID to next-gen lighting systems. That's because LEDs are brighter, more efficient and feature spectrums that are closer to natural sunlight. It’s worth bearing in mind, though, that the extremely high efficiency levels of LEDs (up to an astonishing 2.9 umols per watt) come with a downside. When lighting runs more efficiently, less energy is lost as heat. During the summer, the excess heat produced by HPS lighting systems is a massive hindrance, but in winter it can be a big help. In this blog, we'll talk you through some of the ways to get around this issue and get the best out of your LEDs during the colder months.
