Our Independent Hydroponic Research

It is a well-established fact that high quality research enables progress and sits at the heart of good product development. One Stop Grow Shop is committed to giving customers the best in hydroponic and gardening equipment available on the market today. For that purpose we are conducting a thorough product comparison analysis and collating fresh information on all of the plants and equipment required for successful hydroponic growing.

As with any growing process there are many variables in hydroponics, from the equipment used to the techniques involved and through the plants developed. For manufacturers and growers alike there has been a great deal of progress and development in recent years, and in order to harness the information produced it is essential to conduct a regular analysis of the data.

LED Lamps Research

As part of this process we have been undertaking a study of LED grow lamps with the objective of establishing whether these are an effective growing tool, or a gimmick developed by retailers to improve market sales.

The effectiveness of LED grow lamp has been the subject of much debate within the hydroponic growing community and a lot of detail has been posted on this topic across various blogs without any real definitive answers.

In order to answer some of the questions posed our research study has set up an experiment using the LI-COR LI-190SA Quantum Sensor to compare the output from a Prakasa LED Grow Lamp and a HPS Light, a MH Light and a Fluorescent fitting. You can follow the results of the project as it happens.

Debunking the Myths

In addition to the importance of a patient, measured approach to the process of hydroponic growing and a good understanding of the requisite equipment, growers also need to have relevant information to get the best results.

There are many facts available about the plants involved and methods to produce optimum growing conditions. There are also a few old wives tales in circulation with regard to the techniques that are used and we hope through this research we can help to put some of those tales to bed for good.
