Wow, how time flies when you are having fun. I’ve had some great experiences with my cannabis horticulture project. I’ve got some nice plant production going, but I really like helping all of you that are thinking of getting into the hemp growing business. As you know, I go on and on about how important the right hydroponic grow light will increase your production and make those plants gorgeous, which surely affects your production and the taste of your product. So today I want to look into another LED lamp and put it up for your consideration. Let’s take a look at the Advanced Platinum Series P300w 11-band LED grow light.
This is one of the newer models made in the Platinum series. It is a 400 watt grow light which is an ideal solution for areas of about 5 by 3 feet. In other words, a small to mid-size horticultural garden, enough to have a nice production.
The lamp is a nice money saver as it only consumes about 185 watts of power and gives your plants 100% usable light to get great photosynthesis and nutrition. One of the greatest features of the Platinum series is that it offers an optimal blend of light including UV and IR, which makes your plants incredibly beautiful.
The 3W LEDS also have a 90 degree secondary focusing lens which adds depth and range to the lamp and far outweighs much of the competition for the price. Plus it gives you some great customizing effects. You can use dual light spectrums when changing from plant to flowering or seedling by simply turning on/off the second switch to lower or increase light and spectrum capacity.
What can I say? Advanced Platinum is one of my favorite providers. I think they offer quality products at a very affordable price; the $$$* price tag on this model is comparable to lamps that are much higher priced. The framework is nice and sturdy, the lamps have a 50,000 hour guarantee and the coverage is great.
I usually place this lamp at a distance of about 36 inches from the plant, sometimes closer when I have plants that need more light and a little further out for seedlings. I get coverage of about 4 x 3 feet; however it does reach a bit further than this, which is great, except that the plants further out than this coverage area tend to tilt in towards the light.
I like that this lamp has two different selectable switches to intensify or soften the emitted light. The cooling fans keep the LEDs cool all the time and best of all this lamp is an energy saver and comes with a complete 5 year warranty. The LED chips are replaceable when they burn out, so essentially, you’ll get tired of this lamp before it’s even time to replace it. In my opinion you can’t get a better brand than this.
