Why pay for light your plants can’t See ? Use narrow spectrum bulbs to optimum effect! (details later)-OR-Do you Need Blue Light?(Add to HPS for super growth)-OR-Looking for an Aquarium Light?Get the biggest bang for the dollar!This is not a toy grow light. It is a true 3 lamp high output It offers the following:(A)The BestGrowth Spectrums (You choose the number and kind of bulbs you want)Use our Narrow spectrum bulbs optimized for plant growth. It produces exactly the light a plant wants.AddourBlueBulbsto your HPS lighting system,to prevent stem elongation and ensure lush vegetative growth. It's better than using those energy hogging metal halide conversion lamps that are dimmer. If you have an AQUARIUM, we have the bulbs for you:6500K-Daylight,12,500 K- DeepSea Blue, or Actinic Type.We also have a warm red wide spectrum bulbssuitable for blooming andsunlight simulating (5000K) bulbsthat make for a super shop light too.(B) Save hundreds of dollars on energy.(C) Extraordinary light output that’smagnified with mirror-like reflectors.(D) Multi-purpose: great grow light for full scale production, cool enough for close-in lighting for starting. Bright Great Grow Light This is an electronic high output T8 3 tube, 4’ fluorescent grow light with Mirror like aluminum reflector. It makes 10260 design lumens with standard HO lamps. But runs very cool, so you can intensify light output by putting the light right on top of the plants.It is: 1.2 times brighter than 175 w metal halide ; Six times brighter than a 30 w compact fluorescent; Four times brighter than a shop light with two 40 watt Cool White Deluxe bulbs; 2.2 times brighter than a standard T8 -2 bulb 4’ fixture that others call "high output" ; 2.5 times brighter than the phony “500 watt” FluoreXWhy lose $169? That’s how much you’re sure to lose if you use 175 watt metal halide instead of this light (see notes) Save even more on energy, buy two of these instead of a 400 watt metal halide. Quality WorkmanshipIt is factory new. It includes a 120 volt power cord. There are ample attachments for chain. The commericial grade electronic ballast carries a 5 year free replacement warranty from the manufacturer. It has a high ballast factor that generates 120% of rated lamp output.The hi-tech mirror like reflector is constructed of lighting grade high reflectivity anodized aluminum. This boosts light output and it is specular. This means it can be formed to direct light straight down. The computerized ray tracing results of the reflector are outstanding. You need to be careful using this material. Misapplication will cause the light to scatter to the side of the fixture, worse than if you had used a white reflector. Butthis is much better than a white reflector. Thesurface of a standard white reflector randomly scatters the light. These are ok for a shop, but can't deliver the ultra high light levels for growing. Also it CAN'T RUST .For shipping purposes it has a protective plastic film on it. It's 4' long. We also roll the long edges over so you don't cut yourself. Choice of BulbsIf you don’t specify, we will ship you three narrow spectrum bulbs with the fixture. For the same price, you can have the Blue Bulbs, Actinic bulbs, or the 12,500 K- Deep Sea Blue.We also have cheaper bulbs for this fixture: 5000K daylight lamps, awide spectrum with good red content, and a6500Kaquarium bulb. The replacment cost of these bulbs is only $2.50. So if you want the cheaper bulb, you are entitled to a $7 refund per bulb.We will have extra's of all these bulbs as an eCRATER item. If you need help with bulbs, just email us and we'll help get you set up.Why pay for light your plants can’t See ? Continued....Plants are green because they reflect green light back. Yet conventional grow lights (High Pressure Sodium (HPS) , metal halide (MH) and conventional fluorescents were first developed for humans. Because we see green light the best, these sources are very heavy in the yellow-green spectrum. What a waste! Standard fluorescent grow lights aren’t much better. They still generate lots of green light so house plants look nice. A common misconception is that the ideal color of light for plant growth is sunlight. Much of the light spectrum of sunlight is actually wasted by plants. Again, plants are green because they reflect the green light back. The popular "Grow & Show" wide spectrum type of plant light sold in stores may make foliage look nice and green. But they are not efficient at making plants grow. You can verify in a standard encyclopedia that plants use red and blue energy for photosynthesis. On the other hand, Optimized Narrow Spectrum fluorescents produce light exactly where chlorophyll is most sensitive. University Studies prove much higher fruit production and growth rates. (Documented below!)North Carolina State University conducted experiments with radish, lettuce, and milo to determine the optimum composition of wavelengths for optimum growth. Dry matter weights were measured. These "optimum compositions" are the basis of narrow spectrum grow lights.The same experiments compared the performance of narrow spectrum grow lights, wide spectrum grow and show lights, and a mix of incandescent and cool white fluorescent light. The narrow spectrum fluorescent was definitely superior at inducing plant growth. Radish root Milo (a grain plant)Wide spectrum grow light 130 mg/plant 240 mg/plantNarrow spectrum grow light 240 mg/plant 665 mg/plantThis was confirmed in later experiments comparing wide and narrow spectrum grow lights. Gloxinia plants grew faster and had 50% more blossoms than plants grown under wide spectrums. Corn, lettuce, and tomatoes showed 50 to 60 % higher dry matter production than the same plants grown under wide spectrums. Tiny Tim tomatoes blossomed 1 week earlier. A week later they had 6 blossoms per plant, while the plants under the wide spectrum grow lights only had 2 blossoms per plant.The tomato plants also produced more: Ripe fruitImmature FruitWide spectrum grow light 187 g/plant 415 g/plantNarrow spectrum grow light 340 g/plant 519 g/plantAs you can see,the very best light for growth is the narrow spectrum fluorescent!Common questions about narrow spectrum fluorescents.Q: What is the color Temperature of narrow spectrum fluorescents? A:Color temperature ratings don't Mean much with narrow spectrum fluorescents. They make more very deep red light than traditional low color temperature sources like HPS. While at the same time they actually make much more blue light than high color temperature sources like metal halide. What’s interesting is that the type of deep red light that is most nutritious for plants is barely perceptible by the human eye. So paradoxically, these bulbs look bluish to the eye even though they actually make more red light than blue.Q: Do I need the daylight bulbs or a metal halide spectrum for vegetative growth and then a second set of warm (HPS -like ) bulbs for flowering?A: No. The narrow spectrum bulbs are the best all around bulbs for growing, fruiting, and flowering. You see, HPS lamps make lots of energy that plants need for flowering, but the defective HPS light spectrum produces lanky, stringy growth. (HPS is the same bulb used in street lights) So people will often start plants under a white light like metal halide to encourage compact growth even though metal halide bulbs are dimmer.But with narrow spectrum fluorescents, you don’t have to compromise. Light is generated just where plants can most effectively use it. Q: What about FluorX spectrum? A: The FluorX spectrum is actually identical to our sunlight simulating 5K lamp. It can be used to provide side lighting in HPS systems which are defective in blue light. People have gone crazy over the brilliant fluorX. (I use it in most of our shop and barn lighting fixtures) But while it looks really bright to the eye, but its not the best spectrum for growing plants. You could Save a lot of money if you couldgrow plants in the DARKWhen I first went into Business, the best advice I ever got was “it’s easy to sell as long as you are in business to help people” We seek to serve you in part by divulging all sorts of good accurate information.There is confusion and misinformation about how much light different sources generate. Below is a comparison. Notice how High Output T8’s make more light using less energy than the much more expensive compact fluorescents. Also notice that not all T8 fixture are the same, not withstanding that many are often labeled as “high output” when they are not. The amount of light that you get out of a fixture varies with the ballast used. It’s not necessarily the rated output printed on the lamp.

Our customer’s really like our lights because they are so amazingly bright! Based on word of mouth reference, we have shipped lights all over the country. Our competitors often see our lights and start saying that their ordinary output fixtures that they are selling are really high output too. What a dirty trick! It has happened over and over again. I feel sorry when I meet people that feel they have been cheated. A good part of our business is making rebuild kits to upgrade lights that are too dim.What’s worse is that there is a new kind of shop light on the market. This consumer grade fixture makes exactly 50% of the rated output of the bulb. As one of our distributors who bought one to try said : “I only
