All plants require ultraviolet light (UV) in order for photosynthesis to occur. A drawback to LED grow lights have been that they don’t produce the UV spectrum as readily as other styles, but that’s where UV spectrum LED grow lights come in.

What are the benefits for growing with UV?
Increases root mass
Causes more branching, less stretching
Improves taste and smell
Creates more potent plants
Increases resistance to insects, bacteria and fungus
Increases oils & resins
Reduced plant shock when transferred ourdoors
Speed up the germination process for starting seeds when grown indoors
