What is a Full-Spectrum LED Grow Light?

A full-spectrum LED grow light is simply a marketing term that implies that your grow light closely resembles light from the sun. This marketing term comes from the concept of “full-spectrum light,” which in recent years has been used to refer to electromagnetic radiation from the UV to infrared wavebands.

The History of the Full-Spectrum LED Grow Light

The full-spectrum LED grow light is the newest evolution of an already confusing term. Originally, full-spectrum light described the only real full-spectrum light source, the sun.

Over time, the term began to take on other characteristics of sunlight. The commercial lighting industry began using the name “full-spectrum” to sell lights that produced a Color Rendering Index (CRI) over 90. Humans perceive colors more accurately under light sources with a CRI over 90, much like how we see colors in our natural world under daylight. This was a beneficial feature for human environments such as offices, outdoor spaces, and others.

With the advent of horticultural lighting, companies once again began to borrow the term. Only this time, they claimed that full-spectrum LEDs could reproduce the effects of sunlight for plants. Thus, the full-spectrum LED grow light was born. 

What is the Best Light Spectrum for Plant Growth?

By now you must be wondering:

“If I can’t mimic sunlight, then what light spectrum should I use?”. The answer is both simple and quite complex.

Plants only require PAR light for photosynthesis. So, if your grow light is optimized within the PAR spectrum, you’re going to get the most bang for your buck when it comes to minimizing electrical costs while maximizing plant health.

Beyond PAR, it’s important to choose a light spectrum that’s:

  • best for the environment you’re growing in (greenhouse or indoors)
  • tailored to your plant’s growth phase (propagation, vegetative, flowering, or finishing)
  • or specific to the cultivar being grown

Here are several best full spectrum LED grow lights.
