Better Light Spectrums = Better Plant Growth
The Sun White Pro Spectrum is a commercial grade plant production spectrum formulated with higher blue light content and dedicated 660 nm (red) light in balance to promote strong root development, tight internodal spacing, higher rates of phytochemical production and increased flavonoid content.
Amelia from Amelia’s Indoor Garden gives a 6-week update on using the Active Grow T5 HO 4FT 8 Lamp LED Grow Light for growing vegetables indoors.
Bypass the Hassle
This LED grow light fixture uses Active Grow T5 HO Ballast Bypass LED Grow Lamps and runs directly off line voltage 120-277V. No ballasts means no buzzing, flickering, compatibility or longevity issues, giving your plants pure, uninterrupted lighting. *This fixture is for use with Active Grow T5 HO Ballast Bypass 4FT LED Grow Lamps only. Fluorescent lamps may not be used with this fixture as it does not contain ballasts. Only one side of the fixture’s lamp holders are wired. Insert the lamp end marked with L N into the fixture’s wired lamp holders.
Sustainable Horticultural Lighting
Uses 60% less energy than 54W T5 HO fluorescent lamps when used with Active Grow T5 HO Ballast Bypass LED Grow Lamps, greatly reducing heat output, HVAC costs and the need for more vertical space. Provides savings of over $960 in energy costs over the lifetime of the lamps.
Plant Centric Design
Designed specifically for horticulture use with a 100% more effective spectrum for plant growth and a high PBAR (280-800nm) output and efficacy.
Connect up to 4 fixtures @120V or 8@208V/240V/277V on one circuit to make for an easier and cleaner installation.
Dual On-Off Switches
Dual on-off switches allow growers to run 4 or 8 lamps to meet target lighting requirements for different plant types and growth stages.
Each lamp’s transparent PC body protects against water damage and shattering without sacrificing photon output.

Amelia from Amelia's Indoor Garden reviews the Active Grow T5 HO 4FT 8 Lamp LED Grow Light for growing vegetables indoors.
Grow vegetables indoors all year from seed to harvest using Active Grow sunlamps. I started out with the Active Grow SunWhite 8 lamp T5 fixture. My tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers did so well that I decided to convert all my T8 fluorescent fixtures into ballast free to use T8 Active Grow SunWhite bulbs too (T8 review starts at 2:23). I have harvested so many awesome tasting vegetables. My lettuces did phenomenal under these grow lights. The hardiness and texture were way better than when I was using full spectrum fluorescent. Check out my YouTube videos at Amelia's Indoor Garden. To top it off they are located here in the US with excellent customer service. They truly have a passion for their product.
Good product and delivery time prompt. Very good product

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). (Not an affiliate link). What's your favorite grow light system?
high performance, low cost. This lamp has been phenomenal since turning it on from day 1, I noticed immediate growth improvement. I could not be happier with the performance of these lamps and recommend to anyone.
Great light. The light is great. Perfect for the indoor grow tent I have and puts out a nice, bright, even light. I love it.
Grow lights. Easy to install and appear to be doing their job.
Company very nice. Really nice.
Performing LED at excellent value. Amazing light. Almost no heat output - be sure to plan for that! Also, the switch allows you to turn on only 2 or all 4 bulbs. I thought the fixture was broken at first but it turned out to be an added feature - BONUS ! Support was also very responsive when I messaged them with a question. I will buy again.
