This all-natural light spectrum boosts healthy growth rates for house plants, microgreens, flowers, fruits and more. By mimicking sunlight conditions with a high CRI of 95, the Sun White Spectrum will make your garden look more vivid and it will be easier to detect pests and deficiencies before they spread. This truly full-spectrum light extends beyond the traditional PAR range (400-700 nm) to include far-red wavelengths that increase photosynthesis rates via the Emerson Effect.

T5 LED Grow Light Electronic Ballast Replacement Instructions
Follow along and learn how to switch out an old T5 fixture ballast for a new one that works with our T5 HO Plug & Play LED Grow Lamps.
Upgrading to T5 LED grow lamps from T5 fluorescents offers numerous benefits for plant growth and cost savings. With a longer lifespan and dedicated horticultural spectrums, LED lamps are more energy efficient, emit less heat and are environmentally friendly.

Simple Greens Hydroponics takes a look at different lighting options for an indoor hydroponic system and recommends the Active Grow T5 HO Plug & Play LED Grow Lamps for increasing yields and saving energy costs.
Converted my T5 fluorescents to Active Grow plug & play T5 LED's (2ft, sun white). Growing carnivorous plants and everybody seems happy! The plug & play option was nice because I wanted to keep my fixtures out of the landfill. I opened up my light fixtures to check on the ballasts, and confirmed that mine were on the list of compatible ballasts on the Active Grow website. As easy as changing bulbs, I popped out the old T5 fluorescent bulbs and popped in the T5 Active Grow LED's. Definitely less heat. (The LED bulb portion has a plastic sleeve which confused me, but the Active Grow folks responded quickly to my inquiry and said to leave it on the bulb to keep out moisture.) Thanks for having a plug & play T5!
It's ALIVE! Works for me!!! Lite it, don't fight it!!!!

These seedlings I started about 5 weeks ago are now thriving in my garden. I usually supplement those plants with others I pick up at the nursery to fill in gaps. Not this year. Retail inventory of seedlings was horrible, and so was the quality! And my latest happy discovery this seed-starting round is my new grow lamp system. I love trying different lighting systems in hopes of finally settling on a favorite. Over recent years as I was creating my Master Seed-starting online course, I trialed many options from basic fluorescent shop lights, to high-end LED rigs and more sophisticated T5 fluorescent systems. Recently I was invited to try and keep (at no cost to me) a 24W T5 lamp and fixture from Active Grow. I've trialed several more basic LED shop light rigs in the past but the results were just average. But not this one. It's definitely got my attention. These lamps were clearly designed for indoor growing, with high PPF efficiency (the amount of quality light frequency usable by the plants), and higher energy efficiency (none of the heat energy wasted by the fluorescent alternatives). Over 5 weeks of growing time under this system, the plants performed very well - no legginess, nice compact plants, great color, and no light-burn. You can buy just the lamps that plug and play into existing T5 fluorescent fixtures (4 lamps cost about $139), or you can buy the lamps and fixture for around $219 for the 2x4 ft size - perfect for evenly lighting 4 standard trays on a self. The seedlings here were growing under the Sun White Pro lamps and I was very happy with the results. I'm really looking forward to seeing how it performs for the next round of warm-season edibles starting in February. A link to this lamp system is in my instagram profile (@joegardener).

Good buy. Great customer service. Work well. Easy installation.
All around Great upgrade! These make a world of difference. Cant believe how much better they are for growth. And 3times cooler then t5 bulbs.
Great customer service. Excellent product and excellent customer service. I called the shop in Seattle, WA to ask a few questions and they were very helpful and knowledgable. LED is the way to go!
Great performing LEDs. Fantastic lights for veg and reproductive phases. Good bright white. Had to change ballasts on my fluorescent fixtures to accommodate LEDs. Simple and straightforward process. Well worth it
