Regular DJ LED Lights to grow

vinnnyaJanuary 28, 2014

Hello Everyone,

LED grow lights are very expensive. Back in the day I used to dj and have a few LED Par cans that have 108 red, green and blue LEDs. Would it be possible for me to grow using these par cans? I am planning on growing vegetables and tomatoes indoor.

they are pretty low power, i'm sure they would work not sure how much, and maybe not really big plants?

problem with the really low power leds is they dont have good canopy penetration, so the top leaves will be fine but lower than that will die because they get no light.

May be, It will be better to use the lights more than that because we need the good canopy penetration. In lightning technology, Led occupies the best place.
