High Quality and High Performance, the SolisTek A1+ 1000w Lighting Systems
The professional and incredibly high-output 230V SolisTek A1+ 1000w Lighting System delivers both optimum light quality and unparalleled reliability, allowing you to get the most from each and every harvest. The SolisTek A1+ 1000w Lighting System can utilise both high pressure sodium (HPS) and metal halide (MH) double ended lamps which flood your grow room with high levels of plant usable light.
The SolisTek A1 Reflector's ability to distribute light evenly and effectively covers even the furthest reaches of your growing area. The standard system includes the SolisTek 1000w 2K DE Lamp, where as the complete kit includes the SolisTek 4K, 6K and 10K 1000w DE lamps, so you can switch each lamp in or out depending on your current period of growth or bloom grow, providing you with the ultimate in grow lighting control for all stages of a plants life.
How the SolisTek A1+ 1000w Lighting System Works:
The SolisTek A1+ 1000w Lighting System is a complete fixture with the ballast attached directly to the dimpled SolisTek A1 Reflector, which spreads light evenly throughout the growing area, while allowing heat to dissipate through its ventilation slits. SolisTek designed this lighting system with the professional grower in mind and ballast features "Ignition Control" plus "SenseSmart" technology to power your SolisTek lamps properly. This slowly increases the amount of power to the lamp instead of allowing too much raw power to go straight to the bulb, this both protects the lamp and extends its lifespan.
The SolisTek Lighting System Ballast can be dimmed using the knob on the back of the ballast, this allows further control of the light produced and can come in handy when outside temperatures are causing indoor problems. The complete SolisTek A1+ 1000w Lighting System adds nicley to the SolisTek A1+ Grow Light by combining the three remaining lamps required for a full cycle grow in one kit bundle.By using all four lamps you will be able to change in or out each lamp to correspond to every stage of a plants life cycle, therefore your plants will receive lighting perfectly suited to that particular period of veg or bloom, boosting plant health, vitality and most importantly your end products yield and quality.
Use the SolisTek 6K Dark Blue lamp for vegetation, as it produces a high concentration of blue and purple light, for shorter and tighter inter node spacing and bushier, healthy growth. The SolisTek 4K Daylight is for the later vegetation period as this lamp provides full spectrum lighting, high in the blue, green and yellow spectrum, perfect for vigorous and robust growth which leads nicely into the flowering period. You can then use the excellent SolisTek 2K HPS to flower off your plants, before switching to the SolisTek 10K Finishing Lamp with its unique spectral output for the final week to ten days. This adds extra quality via UV light to your end product, literally allowing it to finish to perfection.
When Do I Switch Between Lamps?
SolisTek have created a range of lamps, harnessing a spread of lighting spectrums to compliment every period of a plants life cycle. From the earliest seedlings stages, through to late flower, helping you produce the best possible results every time. The veg weeks and flowering weeks illustrated below are for guidance only.
Veg Week 1-8: Begin with the SolisTek 6K Blue Lamp for your seedlings, rooted cuttings and young plants, as this lamp promotes bushy, dense growth with tight internodes. The SolisTek 6K Blue is high in blue, purple and green light, making it excellent for all your vegging needs. Use until a couple of weeks before you're ready to flower (depending on how long you're vegging for, typically 4-8 weeks).
Flowering Week 1-2: Two weeks into flowering switch to the SolisTek 4K Daylight Lamp, which is higher in green and yellow light whilst still containing large amounts of purple and blue light, making it a full spectrum lighting source similar to sunlight. The SolisTek 4K Daylight still promotes healthy, upward growth while increasing essential oil content as the first flower sets form.
Flowering Week 3-7: Switch to the SolisTek 2K HPS Lamp as your primary light for most of the flowering period. High in yellow, orange and red light the SolisTek 2k HPS Lamp stimulates rapid, heavy flowering formation.
Flowering Week 8-9: One or two weeks prior to harvest switch out the SolisTek 2k HPS Lamp and replace it with the SolisTek 10K Finisher Lamp. The SolisTek 10K Finisher Lamp has a unique spectrum. Very high in UV and deep blue light its especially useful when used on plants deep into flower, as it promotes increased essential oil production on your heavy-set flowers, further adding quality to your end product.
