    Default Re: Does LED lighting work for artificial plant light?

    You can go as close as physically possible as leds generate practically no heat. Ensure all foliage recieves light. Blue spectrum promotes plant growth and red spectrum enhances flowering stage. Sounds like a nice little setup.

    Don't think it matters what kind of lighting you use on an artificial plant

    Could have been spam as I wouldn't really expect to see something in this section about LED's and plants

    There is quite a lot of information about LED grow lights. The Red and Blue combination make a "magenta" color that is supposed to be optimal for growth.

    from what I have seen, they are built with a ratio of 3 red led's to 1 blue led. I have found several sources for bulk led's and am considering building one of my own. That way, I can build it in the size and shape best suited for my set up.

    When looking at buying led's, remember that there are different degrees of light dispersion. something in the 30 to 45 degree would just about be right. That being the case, being closer to the plant won't help. You need to have it at a distance that the "cone" covers the entire area or it won't be he "magenta" color.
    I thank God everyday for all of the blessings he has given me- especially for the one's I do not recognize or see!

    I don't see how any kind of light could make an artificial plant grow?
