  • HID grow lights (High...
    <p class="p1"><b>High Intensity Discharge bulbs contain a ionized steam or a gas which, when excited by an electrode, creates an electric current.</b> Electric discharges are produced in the tube, due to the potential difference between both electrodes. </p> <p class="p2">The electric discharges produced inside create a flow of electrons that could create a chain reaction that could eventually destroy the lamp due to an excess of current. It is also possible to find the opposite: if there weren't enough energy, the electron would occupy another orbital and its current wouldn't be stable. In this way, the energy it releases is UV energy, just like solar beams. This is the reason why electrons cannot have any energetic state, but a very specific one, so that the light spectrum of this bulb is also very stable.</p> <p class="p2">These lamps are not self-powered and <b>need other devices in order to work, such as a ballast or a choke and a reflector with a socket.</b></p> <p class="p2"><b>Ballast</b> limits electrical current ups and downs, stabilizing it so that the lamp can work properly (preventing an excess of electrons that could increase the intensity of the current and even destroy the lamp). The choke acts the other way round, it supplies a brief peak of current so that the bulb can start and once it is lit, the gas stabilizes.</p> <p class="p2">Reflectors, as their name indicate, <b>reflect light towards a specific place.</b> Besides doing this important task, what they really do <b>is pass the current through a socket to the bulb.</b> Reflectors tend to <b>increase the efficiency of this type of bulbs</b>. Each bulb features its own characteristics and performance levels. How are they assessed? By measuring lumens. The least performant bulbs supply 19-28 lumens/W (this is the case of dual bulbs, this meaning they use a mixed technology and in this case it has nothing to do with the fact they are suitable for the vegetative and the flowering stage).The most efficient bulbs according to measurements, are the <span class="s1">HPS (<a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/hid-grow-lights-high-intensity-discharge-bulbs/214-phillips-son-t-pia-plus-bulb.html">High pressure sodium</a>) bulbs</span>, that can produce up to 100-183 lumens per W.</p> <p class="p2"><b>Advantages and drawbacks of HID grow lights</b></p> <p class="p2"><strong>LEDs have been the biggest competitor of HiD grow lights since some years ago.</strong> Unlike HiDs, LEDs don't heat up. They supply a cold light which lets you place it closer to the plants and thus, make most of the generated lumens. Besides, LEDs last much longer. In the case of continuous growing calculations, with an average of 1 month of veegetative development and 2 months of blooming, growing non-stop, a LED light could last up to 11 years!!! On the other hand,<b> its frequency (Hz) makes it less penetrating than discharge lamps.</b> This means that discharge lamps will get us longer buds and plants will be generally more productive at the lower parts, while with LED we will need to resort to techniques such as Sea of Green (SoG) to get excellent yields.</p> <p class="p2">Another advantage of using LED is that, since no heat is generated, your grow op can go unnoticed for thermal cameras. If you think about a big grow room with HPS you can easily picture high temperatures might be a problem difficult to hide. LED lights also have disadvantages, of course. Indeed, their<b> frequency and that very same lack of temperature</b> make the plant's development to slow down, <span class="s1">both at the <a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/hid-grow-lights-high-intensity-discharge-bulbs/215-sylvania-grolux-dual-bulb.html">vegetative and the flowering stage</a>.</span> During the flowering stage, the fattening of the flowers isn't really affected, but the creation of flowers themselves is considerably slowed down. It's almost like if metabolism had been affected. Somehow, the plants demand less nutrients and, due to that lack of heat, the soil stays humid for longer: this is positive if we don't have much time but it's negative when it comes to respect the proportions soil-air-water.</p> <p class="p2"><b>HiD grow lights foster a quicker development in comparison with, not only LEDs, but also with low consumption lamps</b> (these lamps, which produce very few lumens, are usually employed with mother plants and cuttings). Over the last years, <b>low consumption lamps with a orangish/reddish spectrum had appeared </b>and they seem to be suitable for the flowering stage. However, the lack of light intensity and their operating frequency g-haven't provided very satisfactory results so far. The advantage of these lamps is this type of bulb can be placed close to the plants without damaging them, can be used in warmer places and even in much hotter conditions than what's usually recommended.</p> <p class="p2"><b>Summing up, it is very likely indoor growers will have to keep on using HiD lights for a while if they really want to have beautiful marijuana plants.</b></p>
  • Reflectors
    <p>There are an<strong> incredible amount of grow light reflectors</strong> on the market, each one with specific qualities, from simple to incredibly complex versions that can even extract any extra heat from your plants. A handy way to gauge the efficiency of a reflector is to<strong> measure the lumens</strong> reflected from it.</p> <p>You can get cooled <strong>reflectors, open reflectors, hammertone, smooth, hooded</strong> – there are many different kinds that have different efficiency ratings and specific characteristics.</p> <p>Cooled reflectors are <strong>usually needed during the summer</strong> or in areas that are quite warm – they’re used to stop any excess heat from affecting your plants. They tend to have the bulb in a closed reflector with an inlet and outlet connected to an aluminum tube – with the help of a <strong>small extractor</strong>, they get rid of extra heat. Remember to use an <strong>anti-odor filter too</strong>, or else you may end up tipping your neighbors off to what you’re up to.</p> <p>The cooltube is one of the <strong>most common cooled reflectors</strong> for cannabis as it’s incredibly efficient. However, it reduces the quality of the light your plants produce due to having the extra glass in the way. It is, however, an <strong>efficient solution</strong> for those that have issues with heat in their grow room.</p> <p>We also have <strong>Raptor reflectors</strong>, which is one of the largest reflectors on the market – and possibly one of the most expensive. You can double the amount of light your plants absorb per square meter; you can use <strong>1200w in a 1x1 area</strong> which increases yield quite a lot.</p> <p>Another<strong> potent reflector</strong> similar to the Raptor is the <strong>Xtrasun6 reflector</strong>. This device concentrates light from a 600w light in a square meter area, and it’s potent enough to reach the lower branches on your plants. It also has an<strong> inlet and outlet</strong> which allows the reflector to cool down much faster, which stops heat buildup underneath the reflector itself.</p> <p>The <strong>Daystar</strong> also<strong> looks similar to the previous model</strong>, although you can use it with up to 100w bulbs in incredibly small areas. It’s super easy to set up – simply hang it up and make sure it’s nice and secure.</p> <p>The <strong>Sputnik</strong> reflector may possibly be one of the best cooled reflectors – all of them allow for a cooler grow room but have the disadvantage of reducing light strength.</p> <p>Their <strong>non-cooled hooded reflectors</strong> are used to increase the amount of space your light reaches – if your 600w bulb can cover one meter squared, when using a reflector it can cover around<strong> 1.5m squared</strong>. In order to reduce the heat for your plants, however, we recommend using a device called a spreader, which is used to spread the heat out underneath the bulb. This helps you to stop from burning the lower plants, and makes for a more <strong>even light distribution</strong>. It’s similar to the Adjust-a-Wings.</p> <p>There’s a reflector for almost <strong>every need and situation, covering anywhere</strong> you need to cover. All of these reflectors have a specific use – check them out, they all come with full descriptions with all of their characteristics and how to use them.</p>
  • Ballasts
    <p>Electronic ballast to connect your discharge lamps. <strong>Ballast act as a transformer to supply the lamp enough voltage to light up.</strong> Each ballast has a particular power and must be in accordance with the bulb's voltage.</p> <p>If our <strong>ballast is too powerful for the bulb</strong>, the latter can fuse due to the high current running through it. On the other hand, <strong>if the power is too little for the bulb, this one won't function up to its potential. </strong>It won't break down, though, unless we make it work at really low values of voltage (i.e., a 600W bulb working at 150W). This happens because the current cannot run properly and thus, the negative pole crashes with the positive continuously. </p> <p><strong>Some ballasts only have a single output voltage while others have a regulator to adjust the voltage.</strong> The ones with <strong>fixed voltage can be used in cases such as mother plant rooms where the same light is kept all time or in flowering spaces.</strong></p> <p><a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/ballasts/240-lumatek-dimmable-electronic-ballast.html">Adjustable ballasts</a> <strong>can be used in those rooms where the whole growing cycle is carried out.</strong> They are usually adjusted at 50%, 75%, 100% and 110%. If we choose a 600W ballast that's adjustable it can be normally adjusted to 250W, 400W, 600W and 660w. However, some can be adjusted to 400W, 440W, 600W and 660W depending on the models. All of them could be used along with the same 600W bulb.<strong> At its lowest power, they are used to sprout seeds or root cuttings, at 75% they can be used to grow plants, at 100% they are suitable for the flowering and, finally, at 110%, they can be used for fattening buds</strong>.</p> <p><strong>Ballasts can be electronic and magnetic. Electronic ones make the most of power,</strong> since they provide up to 30% more light than magnetic ones for the same energy consumption. Besides, they can be adjustable whereas magnetic ballast with a voltage regulator simply don't exist. On the other hand, <strong>magnetic ballasts are more economical. Keep in mind, though, that their lower price comes at a cost: </strong>heat builds up inside and eventually, energy that could be used in our plants is lost.</p> <p><strong>Electronic ballasts will always be more quiet </strong>given that the reel and other components of the magnetic ones are substituted with electronic pieces that are almost noiseless. Frequency (Hz) is higher than in magnetic ballasts, so light won't flicker while functioning. As a proof, <strong>if you point with the camera of your mobile phone at the light produced by a magnetic ballast you will see there are stripes of light because it is not continuous but this won't happen with the electronic ones.</strong> <strong>Continuous light means more energy is supplied to our plants</strong> without heating them up (which lets you to install the lamps within the grow room or tent).</p> <p>The <strong>light emitted by</strong> <a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/ballasts/238-eti-class-2-ballast.html">magnetic ballast</a> is <strong>discontinuous.</strong> Due to the lower frequency (fewer Hz) at which light is emitted, your plants <strong>receive</strong> <strong>up to 30% less light than with electronic ballasts.</strong> Also, since this type of ballast <strong>can get really hot, it is advisable not to install them inside the growing space.  Although, they can't be usually adjusted to different voltages, the model 600+ Boost can go up to 660W.</strong></p> <p>All ballasts in our catalogue come with a <strong>detailed description</strong> so even if you don't know much about the subject you can find the one that suits you best. Analyze <strong>pros and cons </strong>and get the one that suits your plants' needs best.</p> <p></p>
  • CFL lighting
    <p>CFL lights for growing cannabis. Give your <strong>plants plenty of powerful light</strong> without letting off much heat at all. As well as saving on your electricity bills, these types of lights have other characteristics that greatly benefit cannabis plants.</p> <p><a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/cfl-lighting/258-fluorescent-growth-low-consumption.html#/bulb_strength-150w">Low-energy lights (CFL)</a> are perfect for growing a small amount of plants that would get much too hot if you were to use a HPS bulb. They emit a powerful light but don’t heat up much, so you can place them much closer to your plants without burning them. They come in different light spectrums too, so you can <strong>choose the right one</strong> for growing and flowering.</p> <p>We stock from <strong>105 to 250w lights</strong> for smaller or larger areas. 100w is perfect for about 60x60cm, and the largest we stock is 250w which you can use to cover up to 1.2x1.2m.</p> <p>In warmer areas where <strong>temperatures can shoot up</strong> during the summer, you can replace your HPS bulbs with low-energy bulbs. You’ll notice quite a difference in the temperature in your grow room and your plants will still be receiving plenty of light. If you have, say, 6 lights, switch 3 of them out for <strong>CFL lights for the best results</strong> and maximum yields.</p> <p>CFL Grow Lights let off a white, strong light that mimics spring light. This allows your plants to grow much stronger and <strong>more compact than with any other bulb of the same power</strong>. They’re also perfect for rooting clones, germinating seeds and maintaining mother plants. They are generally used as extra light when growing with <strong>HPS lights</strong>, placing them in low-light areas.</p> <p>CFL bulbs for the <strong>flowering period</strong> let off a much more orange color which mimics summer/autumn light. This is an indication for your plants that they need to start flowering soon. They might also experience a growth spurt too. When using only these lights, we recommend using the Sea of Green technique for the best possible results.</p> <p><strong>Dual CFL Grow Lights</strong> are perfect for both the growth and flowering periods. Their light isn’t exactly fully white or orange, so they can be used for both periods indiscriminately – this is the best option for those looking to save money on their lights.</p> <p>We also <strong>stock various kinds</strong> of fluorescent tubes too, from the most basic equipment to cutting-edge technology. They’re generally used for rooting and growing cuttings due to their incredibly low light. We also stock reflectors that can fit various tubes.</p> <p>If you’re looking for a <strong>potent light system</strong> that’ll save energy and reduce heat, have a look at our CFL grow lights – we have one for absolutely everyone.</p>
  • Night lamps
    <p>These green light lamps <strong>allow you to check on your plants</strong> in the dark without needing to turn the lights on. These lights are incredibly soft and don’t provide a wide light radius but they will stop your plants from getting too stressed out due to an interruption in their light cycle. Due to being green, it reflects off the leaves and your plants <strong>don’t receive any light</strong>.</p> <p>If your plants detect light during the night cycle, they <strong>may develop issues</strong> later on. If they’re in the growth period, it’s usually fine, although during the flowering period you may have more problems. If a blooming plant receives light when it’s supposed to be night time, they’ll detect a <strong>change</strong> in the cycle. This change is interpreted as shorter nights, so they might begin to grow again and stop flowering. If this happens you’ll need <strong>around 2-3 months</strong> to get it to flower again, which can be disastrous for some.</p> <p>If you can’t <strong>check on your indoor plants</strong> during their light cycle or even outdoor plants that you can’t check on during the day, these green lights allow you to check them rather than using a normal light. Your plants will be able to keep growing on their normal cycle and you can get your work done. These lights aren’t strong enough to check their individual trichomes though – if you bring the light too close, you may cause <strong>hermaphroditism</strong> on that area of the plant. These lights are for simply having a general look at your plants. We <strong>stock various different types</strong> of night lamps so that you can choose whichever one suits your needs best.</p> <p><strong>Agrolite’s <a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/night-lamps/260-agrolite-100w-dark-night-green-light-bulb.html">Dark Night</a></strong> model is one of the most used night lamps when it comes to growing indoors cannabis, as it uses the same type of thread as any normal house bulb. You can place it in your grow room, where your normal room light would go. If you need to go in at night, all you have to do is flip the switch to turn it on. It’s a <strong>100w</strong> light, so if it’s too close to your plants it may bother them and you’d be better off getting another lamp. As long as your plants are a meter away, you’re good.</p> <p>We also have lamps that are <strong>perfect for outdoor areas</strong> or specific situations. One of the most used models is our head lamp, which is a green lamp that can be worn around your forehead. This allows you to <strong>work comfortably</strong> without having to hold anything in your hands while you check out your plants.</p> <p>We also have a <strong>portably keychain lamp</strong> which is perfect for checking out outdoor plants. If you use a strong light outdoors, you may be seen from a distance, which could give away the location of your plants. This light, however, isn’t that strong although it <strong>still allows you to check</strong> on your plants. Simply <strong>stick it on your keys</strong> and you’ll never leave it behind.</p> <p>The <strong>2-in-1 Green Eye lantern</strong> is the perfect combination of two models. You can screw it into your grow room just like the Dark Night lamp, and you can also <strong>remove it and use it anywhere you want</strong> as long as it has batteries. The batteries inside are chargeable, simple place it in a socket to recharge it. It also comes with a remote control for turning it on and off. Also, when charging make sure that the remote is off or it won’t charge. This is a great option for those that grow <strong>indoors and outdoors</strong>; you’ll be able to see your plants perfectly at night.</p> <p>If you’re looking for a soft light for going in and out of your grow room at night, you’ll find the right one here! <strong>Check out</strong> our different models; each one has a <strong>full description</strong> which allows you to see how they’re used and what you can expect.</p>
  • Light Rail
    <p>Light Rails are used for cannabis grow lamps. Set your lighting kit up on the rail and multiply the <strong>amount of light coverage</strong> your grow room gets – your lights will be <strong>able to move from side to side</strong>, covering larger areas. These light rails are super easy to install and are highly beneficial for cannabis plants.</p> <p><strong><a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/light-rail/262-light-rail-42-intelli-drive-indoors.html">Light Rails</a> </strong>are essentially metal bars that guide your<strong> lights</strong>. They’re installed in the ceiling – these two 1m bars can be extended up to 1.8m. This guide holds the light holder plus the motor that makes it move – it’s a smart system that will allow your lights to move from one side of the rail to the other. Each time your <strong>lights reach the edge</strong> a flip switches and changes the direction of your lights.</p> <p>Your plants will be able to <strong>absorb light from various different angles</strong> at all times, which allows your plants to grow much thicker and tougher, therefore producing larger yields too. You can also use just one light to grow plants that would normally take two lights, lowering the temperature in your grow room and getting extremely similar yields. In a <strong>2.4 x 1.2m area</strong> you can grow using just one <strong>600w light</strong> and still yield <strong>almost 1kg of quality weed</strong>.</p> <p>Its motor is <strong>incredibly quiet</strong>, and you can also set the speed you want it to move at. It has rubber wheels along the bar that stops it from making annoying noises, which is <strong>essential for indoor cannabis</strong> growing discretion. The motor has a fixing stud onto which you’ll need to attach your light.</p> <p>There’s another part called a <strong>stabilizing bar</strong> which is used to screw your lights to the holder so that it’s fully attached and doesn’t end up spinning around. Some growers manage to <strong>hang two lights</strong> from the stabilizing bar, increasing results.</p> <p>Due to being in constant movement, your plants won’t end up burnt if they’ve been placed a little bit <strong>too close to your lights</strong> or if you’re using a super-strong light. We also recommend using these types of lights with a <strong>SCRoG or SoG system</strong> in order to increase results quite a lot.</p> <p>You can use various accessories with these Light Rail systems, such as an extension bar that extends the rail <strong>up to 2m long</strong>, reaching 4m with just one motor. If you use 2 lights, you can grow in a 4m area while using much less electricity. This method can net you <strong>up to 2kg</strong> from your plants.</p> <p>You can make the most out of it by using an <strong>Add a Lamp kit</strong>. This kit can be used to move two lights with just one motor. This kit contains another two extendable bars – an extra holder is added to the rain, which moves with the same motor. It’s like having two Light Rails together with just motor, allowing you to <strong>place 2-4 lights</strong>, depending on how hefty your reflector is.</p> <p>You can also get the <strong>Switch Stop accessory</strong>, which you can use to get the motor to go the other way when using two rails together.</p> <p>The wheels are <strong>quite silent</strong>, although they’ll begin to erode after a certain amount of use – you should change them once a year in order to keep the rail working perfectly. We also stock all spare parts such as wheels, motors and holders so that you can keep your Light Rail in perfect conditions – the more worn out the wheels, the more likely it is to break down or burn out the motor due to excessive weight. We also stock spare motors for issues such as these.</p> <p>If you’re looking for an automated Light Rail system, you’re in the right place. We stock all sorts of spare and replacement parts, so you can get anything you need right here. Every product has a full description so you know exactly what you’re getting before you get it.</p>
  • Components and...
    <p>In this section you can find <strong>components and accessories</strong> for you grow lights and anything you might need to keep the lightning equipment of your grow op under control. Time your lights, lower the power of your extraction system or measure the<strong> intensity</strong> in your bulbs to decide whether they're working properly or they need to be changed.</p> <p>One of the most <strong>indispensable accessories</strong> for indoor growing are timers. They are in charge of controlling when your lights turn on and off. They are <strong>very precise</strong> and will turn the lights on and off exactly at the time you want. You'll be able to spare your plants the stress of light fluctuations.</p> <p>If you only use one light, an <a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/components-and-accessories/266-cornwall-electronics-analogue-timer.html">Analogue Cornwall Timer</a> might be ideal for you: they're very easy to use. It's a clock with knobs and depending what time they are set, and whether they are up or down, you'll be able to your lights turn on and off. The truth is this timer is ideal if you use just one light, but if you use 2 lamps or more it's advisable to get a different model. Analogue timers are very sensitive and if you use 2 lamps with a 600W magnetic ballast, they will most likely stop working. It can endure up to 6A approx. but a 600W with magnetic ballast uses 4A, so two units will burn this timer out. However, it is true it could be used with an <strong>electronic ballast</strong> that would only use 2.6A and two lamps.</p> <p><strong>Digital timers</strong> are very similar to analogue ones but they are controlled by means of a digital screen. If you use them with lamps, they are actually very similar and they support the same range of power. However, these types of timers have many other potential uses since you could set them to perform up to 8 additional functions. They are <strong>ideal for irrigation or extraction systems</strong>. They are so precise and have so many options, you could set them to work for just one minute at an exact day of the week.</p> <p>If you want to use <strong>two lamps</strong> without the timer blowing a fuse, you can <strong>resort to a Legrand timer</strong>, one of the best on the market. They use a system similar to Cornwall's, but are made of much finer materials and components. They hardly break down and will maintain the right photoperiod for your plants. If anything goes wrong with the <strong>lighting in your indoor garden</strong> you might lose your plants, so investing in a good timer is well worth it.</p> <p>If you are going to use more than 2 lamps, the best way to go is to use multi socket timers. These timers can control and withstand the intensity requirements of <strong>4 to 12 lamps</strong>. Besides, they are incredibly safe since they have a thermal cutoff inside that will cut out when a problem is detected. In this way, you can prevent incidents such as <strong>short-circuits</strong> that might cause serious damage. Many timers come with two sockets for plugs, so the current can be splitted in two lines. If you don't plug in both, none of the lamps will work: it is not that there's a socket for each of the lamps but that <strong>both plugs must be connected</strong> so that current can run through.</p> <p>We have <strong>white-label 4x600W and 8x600W timers</strong> of really good quality. They have from <strong>2 to 4 sockets</strong> at each side of the box, where lamps are placed. Another socket, located at the top of the box is used to turn on the heating so when the lamps go off, temperature doesn't go down during the night cycle and plants don't suffer any stress due to temperature differences. A clock, located in the middle of the box, will make all the lights turn on and off at the chosen time, with no risk of the timer blowing or the light staying lit due to excess power. It is an indispensable accessory for <strong>big grow ops</strong>.</p> <p>If you don't trust white-label products entirely you can choose one of our <strong>GSE Timers</strong>, a brand that will never disappoint you. It has two models of several timers, some with a switch that turns the heating on for the night cycle. Models include from 4x600W sockets to 12x600W, so you can use even more lamps. These boxes come with a quality warranty, when you buy any product from GSE you know you have a device for life.</p> <p>Other components such as the <strong>CII-Mate controller</strong>, besides controlling the light cycles of up to 4x600W lamps, can adjust the temperature of your garden with extractors. Time A/C and lighting equipment with the same device: a whole central station for a very good price. It also has maximum speed, <strong>minimum speed and hysteresis functions</strong>. You can set your extractor to work just up to a certain speed so it doesn't make so much noise, you can set a minimum speed so there is always a negative pressure and also, the temperature at which we want our plants to be exposed. Our plants require luminosity levels that you need to supply with grow lights. When lights are new they emit a very powerful light that lets plants carry out their processes with no problem. However, luminosity declines with time and use. If you want to know if bulbs need to be replaced or if plants are getting enough energy, you need a light meter. This instrument lets you know the exact amount of lumens that reach the plants and if bulbs are still fully functional.</p> <p>We sell two models of light meter in our catalogue, both with a detailed description of their characteristics and how to use them. In short, you will have to ensure the plants are getting about 5000 lumens at the tips during the <strong>vegetative stage and 45000</strong> during the flowering: if you can't place them at a such distance so that the tips don't get burned, you will have to replace them.</p> <p>Pulleys are other accessories that will help you to install your lamps. As the <strong>cycle goes on</strong>, you will need to rise the lights little by little as plants grow up and, once the cycle is over, you will have to get them down again. Pulleys simplify this task: by simply pulling from a rope, the lights will go up and by removing the breaks they will go down. You won't have to use inconvenient chains or ropes or anything of the kind. Depending on the weight you want to hang, you'll have to use anything between the smallest pulleys (<strong>5 kg</strong>) and the biggest ones (<strong>up to 69 Kg</strong>). The product description includes all the details for each of them.</p> <p>If you need a cable for your reflector or your ballast, we sell cables by the meter (<strong>available in 1.5mm and 2.5mm sections</strong>). The 1.5 mm cable allows you to connect a plug to the ballast or drive power from the ballast to the reflector easily. If you need cable for higher currents, such as a main cable for 6 to 8 lamps, you'll need to use the 2.5mm one.</p> <p>There are also <strong>2m cables</strong> with a Plug &amp; Play jack for connecting your reflector to your ballast without needing to cut the peg of the ballast. There are also spare jacks for ballasts that don't come with an integrated cable to connect to the lamp and need to have the cable attached separately. Extractors come often without a cable or a jack, so you can also use the spare plugs with them.</p> <p>We also offer <a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/components-and-accessories/2185-ceramic-light-socket-for-reflectors.html">spare light fittings</a> to which you can attach both your <strong>CFL grow lights and HPS lamps</strong>. The standard reflector comes with a special light fitting that you can now replace easily. CFL lights are the ones that require more of spare fittings since this type of lamps is usually set looking down and hanging in the middle of the plants. With a main lamp and CFL lights among your plants, production in the branches tends to increase a lot and results in heavier yields.</p> <p>So, if you are looking for <strong>lighting accessories</strong> for your plants and information on them, you're in the right section. Each product comes with an explanatory video and a detailed description that will get rid of any doubts when it comes to choosing the <strong>right product</strong> or how to use it once you get it home.</p>
  • Lighting kits
    <p>Complete lighting kits for <strong>indoor cannabis growing</strong>, including ballasts, bulbs and reflectors. They come ready to be assembled and start working, becoming your plants' new sun. Depending on the kit you choose, you'll have a wide range of different benefits. Each kit has specific ways and characteristics that increase yield, among other things, on your cannabis plants.</p> <p><strong>Xtrasun is one of the simplest and most affordable kits</strong>. It is ideal for growers who are really not at ease when it comes to electrical installations. The kit is ready to be plugged in without having to do make any sort of connection, so it's impossible to get it wrong when you install it. It comes with an Xtrasun ballast that, besides being incredibly sturdy, has a <strong>fuse that protects the system</strong>. If there are any issues, the fuse will burn out first and your equipment won't be affected. It includes a reflector that comes with the cable already installed and is connected to the ballast via a Plug &amp; Play jack, without needing to screw anything in or use a <strong>multi-socket adaptor. </strong>The bulb that comes with this kit is a mixed spectrum Xrtrasun and it can be used both for the vegetative and the flowering stages. It is only available at<strong> 600W.</strong></p> <p><a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/grow-light-kits/130-eti1-complete-lighting-kit.html">Set De Luxe</a> have been our <strong>best-selling kits</strong> since they were first released on the market. Besides being highly affordable, they are built for battle! Reliable and long-lasting, they have been lighting up our plants for more than 10 years. It's the first ever model that the <strong>average Spanish grower</strong> got to use, and they are still on the market. They come with a <strong>magnetic ETi1 ballast</strong> - the most generic ballast available. You have to install the cable yourself but there's an explanatory video with the product description that can help you out - although the video is in Spanish. Also, there is a Smooth or Hammertone reflector (to choose from), and a bulb from the brand of your choice to light up your plants. This kit is ideal for those who need many units for big rooms, since it is the <strong>most affordable option</strong> and cables can be installed as you need them. Available in wattages that range from <strong>250W to 1000W</strong>.</p> <p>Our<strong> complete kits</strong> are similar to the Set de Luxe ones, the only difference being that instead of a <strong>ETI1 ballast</strong> they come with an ETI2. This ballast has a fire-proof shell covering its components so if a spark appears or it starts burning inside, fire won't spread to your room or to the ballast next to it. Its cables are already connected. There is another tutorial video explaining how to connect your <strong>ETI2 ballast</strong> under the product description. You will be able to choose among different types of reflectors and bulbs. Just pick out the desired wattage and the components you want in order to design your customized kit. You can choose a kit with adjustable sides if you want to cover a bit more than <strong>1m2 with your 600W lamp</strong> or you can choose the Cooltube Kit if you have issues with high temperatures.</p> <p><a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/lighting-grow-kits/1110-lumatek-600w-lighting-kit.html">Lumatek Kits</a> are some of the <strong>best kits available</strong> on our page. The Lumatek ballast is one of the best electronic ballasts in the market and provides much heavier and finer quality yields than any magnetic ballast. Your plants will get up to <strong>30% more light</strong>, since light is emitted continuously. If you point a phone <strong>camera towards the light</strong> emitted by a magnetic ballast, you will notice it flickers, whereas electronic ballasts provide continuous light, supplying much more energy for your plants. Besides, they are adjustable too. If you choose a 600W ballast the regulator will offer 400W-400W super lumen, 600W and 600W superlumen. If you choose the 400 ballast, the regulator options will be <strong>250W, 250 super lumen, 400W and 400W super lumen</strong>. Lumatek ballasts can be connected to any reflector you want with any bulb you want.</p> <p>The most affordable option for <strong>electronic ballast kits</strong> are the ones by Agrolite. However, the only model by the brand that comes with an adjuster is the 600W adjustable kit. Neither the <strong>250W and the 400W</strong> have an adjuster. Apart from that, the kit is good and would be ideal for a grower who wants to buy just one lamp, since with an electronic ballast he/she will always get a <strong>better harvest than with a magnetic one</strong>.</p> <p>Whichever kit you want, you will find it in our catalogue with great offers and professional descriptions. We'll tell you all the <strong>pros and cons and show you tutorial videos telling know how to install everything. Avoid any future issues and make a sound choice here at GrowBarato.net.</strong></p>
  • LED lighting
    <p>LED lighting is <strong>swiftly changing the cannabis grow lamp market</strong>, as they’ve been progressively improving over the last few years and growers soon caught on to this. More and more efficient lighting systems are being made all the time, consuming less energy and making for much smaller electricity bills. Until just a little while ago, LED lights were generally used during vegetation or as an extra helping hand for HPS lights during flowering, but <strong>this has all changed</strong> recently.</p> <p>Latest generation LED screens such as the EOS iGrow are so efficient that in a normal grow you  can easily get more grams per watt. All of the energy that LED lights consume is <strong>useful for your plant</strong>, and not even a centimeter of electricity will be wasted when using these kinds of lights. The EOS iGrow LED light gives your plants the energy they need from around 40-50cm away, making it perfect for a 90x90cm area both in the vegetative and flowering periods.</p> <p>The EOS iGrow is one of the first LED models with which you can grow your plants through each phase without needing HPS lights; <strong>we tried it ourselves and uploaded a diary video on YouTube</strong> (in Spanish) so you can check it out for yourself. You can see how efficient it is and the amazing yield we got from just 120w.</p> <p>The investigation and studies done in developing the iGrow prove that you don’t need to use a lot of power to get the best results, as the iGrow can be set to have a <strong>fixed 200w light</strong>, but it’s more efficient with pulsing light technology. Through an App, you can choose how you want the lamp to emit light; fixed, pulsing, or using predetermined programs such as CPM1.</p> <p>When on the fixed setting, <strong>you’ll get around 200w from your plants</strong> with a purple sort of spectrum similar to other LEDs. Due to being on that setting, your plants won’t be absorbing all of the energy that they could which can severely decrease yield.</p> <p>When on the pulsing setting, the LED emits intermittent pulses of light, leaving the plants in total darkness for a few seconds. When using this setting, you get <strong>more out of the energy being produced but it’s still not as efficient as LEDs can get</strong>. The lights will be pulsing all at once at 200w, using about 120w per hour, and the yield will be larger than with the fixed light setting.</p> <p><strong>The best setting is the CPM1 setting</strong> – this is a program that emits light pulses just like the previous setting, but in this case your plants won’t be left in the dark – this setting emits red and blue lights separately.</p> <p>The red LED consumes around 40-60W, and the red ones can have spikes of 200w, and the <strong>average between both is around 120w an hour</strong>. This means that all of the energy being sent towards your plants is then absorbed by them, making this the most efficient way to grow cannabis with LEDS, and it’s also the method that we used for the diary. We got over 1.5g per watt, over 190g with 120w, which is quite a decent quantity for a home-grower.</p> <p>This LED model is designed for growing in the smallest of areas and marketed towards small growers – grow tents around 1.2m big will need a couple of them;<strong> with 240w you’ll manage to get almost as much as you would from one 600w bulb</strong>. You’ll also notice the buds getting harder than usual, denser and much more resinous – due to not being excessively hot thanks to how little the LED panel actually heats up, the drops of resin accumulate all over the plant, making for a final product that is clearly <strong>much better quality than weed grown with HPS</strong>.</p> <p>Another advantage is that LEDs hardly emit any heat, so you can use them indoors during the summer <strong>without worrying about burning your plants</strong> and without needing anything extra such as air conditioners.</p> <p>These LEDs can last over 10 years, meaning you’ll be saving on your electricity bill as well as having to replace your bulbs, and on top of all that you won’t need any cooling systems, all things that make up for the slightly above-average price – a price which is justified by the amazing benefits of this product as well as the top-quality material that it’s made out of, and the post-sales service that the EOS team offers our clients. <strong>The proof is in the pudding</strong>, and for normal growers that pay their own electricity bills this LED panel can surely save a lot of money in the long run.</p> <p>There are many other kinds of LED lights that aren’t as efficient, as they’re based on old-fashioned systems. The most used one is a lot of power for a simple square meter, but that doesn’t guarantee a decent yield at all. "<strong>Conventional</strong>"<strong> LEDs are perfect for using alongside HPS bulbs during the flowering period</strong>, and during the vegetative period on their own as your plants don’t need that much light, or for growing in summer when you’re left with no other option.</p> <p>The Professional PhytoLed GX LEDs are LED dual spectrum screens with which you can grow and flower your plants – it has different settings, <strong>from 66w to 256w</strong>, so that you can pick what you need depending on how and where you’re growing.</p> <p><strong>LEDs are generally used alongside HPS lamps</strong> so that you can have less HPS and decrease heat in your grow, as well as increasing the lateral yield in your grow – you can also use LEDs on their own but you won’t get anywhere near the yield that you want, although sometimes you’re left with no other option if you want to grow during the summer.</p> <p>The <strong>GX-200, GX-300 and GX-400 models have a button with which you can change the light spectrum from growth to flowering</strong>, giving specific colors for each phase of your cannabis plants – they also have reflectors at a 90º angle, making sure that the light from the LED can get all the way down to the lower leaves and stems – you can switch these out for 130º ones, used to spread the light out more evenly.</p> <p>LED lights lose a lot of power when they heat up, and this significantly decreases life-span as well as decreasing LED performance. <strong>PhytoLed’s come with fans in the back part that keep it nice and cool</strong>, making the lights themselves last much longer and work at full-power the entire time they’re on. The GX-200, GX-300 and GX-400 models come with two rows of fans; one row can be manually turned on and off whereas the other will turn on automatically if the panel reaches a certain temperature in order to cool it down if it heats up too much.</p> <p>You can check out each <strong>model’s full, detailed description on our webpage</strong>, which is sure to help you make up your mind on which one is the best one for you.

  • Induction bulbs
    <p>Induction bulbs are stirring up the Spanish grow world. This new technology <strong>has been tested on cannabis crops and the results are very promising: it yields more gr per W than the maximum achieved with HPS</strong>. It is possible to get <strong>the same weight with much less energy and heat.</strong></p> <p>They <strong>cast an intense and cold light,</strong> <strong>very similar to the one produced by Leds.</strong> Their manufacturers brag about having a <strong>high PAR</strong>, which is the part of emitted lights that is finally absorbed by plants. An additional advantage is they <strong>produce ultraviolet rays</strong> (not many, though). This results in <strong>an extra amount of THC</strong> with indoor cultivation that was, <strong>until now, reserved to outdoor plants as a consequence of their exposure to UVA.</strong></p> <p>There are <strong>two models of Magnetic Induction Lamp</strong>s in our catalogue. The first one produces a <a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/induction-bulbs/858-dual-electromagnetic-induction-lamp.html">mixed spectrum</a> that can be used for both the growing and the flowering stages and can be chosen in<strong> 200W and 300W</strong>. It is a good way to avoid changing bulbs or moving the plants around during a cycle. Despite the coldness of the light, <strong>we'll notice a very particular growth, with large leaves and short plants.</strong> Indeed, this type of lamps are <strong>very powerful for the vegetative</strong> stage since they are also effective during the bloom that requires much more light. <strong>When we move on to the flowering stage we'll notice the light is, indeed, strong, but that it does not penetrate much into the lower layers</strong>, just like Leds. In this case, we <strong>must use SCROG nets</strong> so that we get our plants to flower properly.</p> <p>The second model is the<span style="text-decoration:underline;"> <a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/induction-bulbs/858-dual-electromagnetic-induction-lamp.html">Flowering Magnetic Induction Grow Lights</a>.</span> It is <strong>only available at 300W</strong> and <strong>will be used mainly in the second stage of the plant's cycle. It is ideal to grow cuttings,</strong> root them and grow them in a small cabinet in a SOG setting. <strong>Only by using short plants or tutoring them with the aid of a net will you get to take best advantage of your lamp.</strong> If the lamps are too tall, they will simply bloom a bit at the tips.</p> <p>These lamps generate <strong>virtually no heat,</strong> so they <strong>ideal for summer months</strong> when we're usually forced to interrupt our cultivation. Once the cold is back, <strong>we can use them along with HPS to increase lateral yield </strong>significantly and <strong>increase both the weight and quality of the harvest.</strong> When doing this properly the <strong>plant will develop evenly and the final product will be homogeneous, too.</strong></p> <p>If you're looking for a Magnetic Induction Lamp to grow your indoor marijuana, you will <strong>find the above explained models along with their detailed description in our catalogue.</strong></p>
  • Generators
    <p>Thanks to these professional generators you can generate all the light you need with<strong> rigorous control and a steady signal.</strong> These motors are particularly good for lighting kits. Given that they are soundproof, you can grow your plants with minimum noise and they also produce less harmful emissions. The three models we have are from the brand Himoinsa, which is famous for their <strong>high quality and very resistant generators</strong>.</p> <p>From now on, you won't have to worry about having your growing space far from home: you'll have power at all times, with no ups and downs or other impractical fluctuations. Marijuana needs very <strong>steady light parameters.</strong> If this is not the case, you risk encountering problems related to stress or hermaphroditism. Making your investment profitable will be relatively quick with this type of engines that area guarantee of a long lifespan of proper functioning.</p> <p>The most powerful generator in our catalogue is the model HFW 180T5. It offers all the power with <strong>negligible noise</strong> thanks to a soundproof box (optional) and therefore, it can be set closer to the working areas without bothering anyone. <strong>Their antivibratory dampers prolong the engine's lifespan thanks to a reduction of up to 60% the vibrations.</strong> With time, vibrations tend to damage screws and gears. The soundproof of the HFW 180T5 is made of <strong>volcanic wool rock </strong>of high density, which makes it more quieter. Its emergency switch will let you stop the engine in case of an unexpected event.</p> <p>The second model we recommend is the <a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/generators/3253-hhw-65t5-generator-set.html">HHW 65T5</a><span style="text-decoration:underline;"> </span>which, besides being resistant and powerful, is the cheapest of its kind. The <strong>integrated diesel tank comes attached to the chassis and the bodywork is made of high quality metal plate.</strong> It is totally accessible for maintenance purposes (water, oil, filters...without having to dismantle the hood) and it also has a reinforced hook so it can be hoisted up.</p> <p>Finally, we have the <a href="https://www.growbarato.net/en/generators/3254-hhw-85t5-generator-set.html">HHW 85T5</a> by Himoinsa, which is more powerful than its brother 65T5, besides being slightly smaller(which facilitates its transportation). It's very <strong>stable and efficient</strong>. Its protection <strong>index is IP23 so it is very safe and its isolation class (H) makes it perfect for any location.</strong></p> <p>In short, Himoinsa is a <strong>synonymous with quality and reliability</strong> when it comes to generators. Their almost 20 years in the field of generators and heavy machines provides them with the experience and professionalism required not to disappoint any customer with <strong>their innovative and flawless construction products.</strong></p>
  • LEC Lighting
    <p><strong>LEC lighting</strong> is a brand new lighting system that’s fixing to revolutionize the world of indoor growing; these lights allow growers to get extremely similar results as when using classic HPS lights – but using quite less power. Thanks to many different tests done to improve the efficiency of LED lights, the available knowledge we have on plants and how to grow them has grown; this allowed developers to create new systems and highly improve those that already exist.</p> <p>One new discovery made was that plants grow stronger and healthier if grown <strong>under lights that have blue and red tones</strong>, as these colors are much easier for plants to absorb.  This kind of lighting LEC lighting, was designed based on the idea of taking the new information learnt about how plants feed off of light and putting into grow lamps – thus, creating a sort of half-way light much cheaper than LED lights that also guarantees more yield per watt than HPS lights.</p> <p><strong>Sunburst CHM 315 by Hydrofarm Lighting</strong> is the pacesetter for these new LEC lights – it has a reflector with an internal ballast, making for a comfortable device that has all of its parts in one singular piece. It has a robust structure made out of aluminum alloy, guaranteeing a long-lasting device. It also includes a <strong>Philips 315w CMH</strong> <strong>light with a color spectrum between 3100k and 4200k</strong> – both mixed.</p> <p>The <strong>LEC Solux lighting kits</strong> are perfect for any grower, as you can use them from 315w to 630w, depending on your needs. Both power setting kits include an adjustable electro-magnetic ballast with which you can save power by reducing it during the vegetative stage and then turn it all the way up during flowering. It also comes with a classic stucco reflector plus the corresponding LEC socket so you can easily adapt this product to your grow needs. There are various different light spectrums to choose from (3000k, 3100k, 4200k, 10000k etc.) as well as some of the best bulbs from the best lighting brands out there such as <strong>Solux or Philips.</strong></p> <p>The <strong>complete LEC grow kit</strong> includes a lighting kit from which you have to choose either <strong>315w or 630w</strong>, as well as everything you need to set up your indoor grow – this makes for quite a discount as it includes the grow tent, the extractor and intractor, the filter, the pipes, the fan and all of the other components that you need to grow indoors.</p> <p><strong>The 360 Magnetic LEC lighting kit</strong> is slightly more affordable, and it’s the perfect option for you to simply try out this lighting method. It contains a Philips 360w LEC with a classic screw and a reflector to choose from between a <strong>classic stucco or a stucco reflector with cooltube</strong>, and it also includes a 400w special LEC ballast.</p> <p>With the <strong>LEC bulb socket</strong> you’ll be able to attach your LEC light to your old reflector without needing to buy a new one. On one side it has a screw that simulates classic bulbs, which means that all you need to do is screw it into your ballast and then connect the bulb!</p> <p><strong>Adjustable LEC Solux ballasts</strong> are perfect if you’re looking for a safe, guaranteed-to-work product – their LEC bulbs are some of the most successful bulbs on the market. You can find then in two different formats, 315w and 630w – both come with dimmers so that you can find the perfect setting.</p> <p>You can also count on our <strong>replacement LEC bulbs</strong>, knowing that you’ll always find the perfect spare or replacement here – all you have to do is pick the brand and color!</p>
Lighting systems for marijuana growing

Choose the ideal lighting for your marijuana garden among all the products in our catalogue. Aware as we are of the importance of lighting in marijuana growing, our products are always in stock and ready for quick shipment.

Find the lamps you need for your indoor setting according to your specific needs. We offer you low consumption lamps, that let you grow your plants in small spaces without increasing the temperature as it is the case with other bulbs, while consuming very little power.

If you still want to save money while gaining light quality, you can look for alternatives among the LED systems. Since they do not emit heat, LED lamps will let you grow your plants in both small and big spaces, enabling even summer cultivation. LEDs always result in better blooms than low consumption lamps and give great results with a minimal power consumption. However, the highest yields are achieved with HPS lamps.

HPS lamps are the most widely used in marijuana growing, since their colors and powerful light lead to important productions. Although these lamps produce a substantial increase in temperature, you can prevent heat from accumulating by renewing the air within the growing space. In this way, you will keep good growing parameters at all times. In summer, it is better to use LED lights but when cooler temperatures arrive nothing can beat HPS: it is the closest you can get to having a "personal sun".

In order for lamps to work, a ballast is required. It acts as a power transformer that makes bulbs function. Ballasts can be either electronic or digital. Electronic ones make the most of power, since they don't heat up and all their power is used to produce light. On the other hand, digital ones heat up so they waste part of the energy. 

Another parameter is frequency (Hz). If we look at lamps through a camera, we can see that with digital ones, the light flickers, while with the electronic ones, the light appears to be continuous. In practice, this means electronic ballasts provide our plants with 30% more light than the digital ones.

Reflectors are responsible for spreading the light produced by the ballast and several of their features can change your growing op. In gardens with heat concentration you can resort to refrigerated reflectors that will remove the heat generated by the bulb, such as the cooltube or the famous Spudnik. You can also find reflectors that ensure a more even distribution of light such as the Adjust a Wings, which will result in more homogeneous plants. Finally, you can find reflectors that concentrate light, covering less space but penetrating down to the lower layers of the plants; this is the case of the Daystar reflectors.

All lighting systems must be timed, so you will also have to envisage some space for the timers and all you need in your installations (from cable protecting hoses and plugs, to pulleys to hang your lamps and lift them at will).

Whatever you are looking for to light your plants, you will find it in our catalogue at the best price.
