The name “420” references the area of the light spectrum produced by this lamp. The PowerVEG 420 is a true VEG light for indoor growers. PowerVEG 420 provides a spectrum that is crucial for plant growth during the vegetation cycle, focusing all spectral energy at 420 nanometers. This high UV A spectrum adds the nutrient values that are vital for the growth. Combined with the spectrum provided by the FS+UV fluorescent grow lamps, the PowerVEG 420 maximizes the initial growth process for vegetation through:
PowerVEG 420 maximizes the initial growth process for vegetation through:
- Tighter internodal spacing
- Stomatal opening 10 times greater than red light (feeding tube of plant)
- Stronger root growth
- Chlorophyll A
- Beta carotene
Spectrum Combinations for Your Plants
The PowerVEG 420 can be combined with more than just our FS+UV lamp. There are five total PowerVEG colors lamps that can be combined to make customizable light spectrums for your plants.
Each PowerVEG grow lamp produces a different light spectrum for your plants. Growers can customize their own light spectrums with various combinations or they can use one of the suggested formulas. EYE HORTILUX has recommendations for 8-lamp and 4-lamp fixtures to produce the best results for your plants in the vegetative, flowering and start-to-finish set ups.
To produce the VEG spectrum, select the corresponding base colors and install lamps as shown in your 8-lamp or 4-lamp fixture. The suggested VEG formula produces a large amount of blue light spectrum to enhance the vegetative growth cycle. The combination of the FS+UV, 420 & 460 provides the most vegetative focused light spectrum on the market.
