Far-Red wavelengths boost light absorption, speed up plant growth and combine with blue wavelengths to promote root development, budding and fruiting.
Bypass the Hassle
This ballast bypass LED grow lamp works with existing T8 fluorescent light fixtures by bypassing the ballast and wiring the lamp holders (tombstones) to a single end. Without the need for a ballast, these universal voltage 120-277V lamps do not flicker, buzz or experience longevity issues. *Requires bypassing the ballast during installation. Requires non-shunted lamp holders (tombstones). Please refer to the T8/T12 LED GROW LIGHT BYPASS BALLAST INSTRUCTIONS VIDEO below for detailed installation steps.

As advertised. great value
Houseplants love it. Sturdy construction that provides warm light for houseplants. Really brightened up the basement.
Very well packed. Good instructions. All 4 tubes worked well and seemed quite bright.
Seedlings are doing great! Superior customer service!
Great replacement grow light, fantastic customer service. I bought these lamps to replace some very old fluorescent tubes that I use to keep some outdoor plants alive over winter. I hesitated first at the price, but after reading and studying I decided to go for it. After they arrived, retrofitting the old fixtures with new tombstones was a piece of cake. It was a great feeling to see the fixtures plugged in for the first time again and WOW how bright that light was! I'm sure my plants will love these. Unfortunately, one of the bulbs that arrived didn't work. I contacted Active Grow on a Friday evening, and within just a couple of hours Taylor responded to say he would send a replacement out on Monday. Now that's fantastic customer service! The new bulb arrived perfectly and works like a charm. Don't hesitate to buy these lamps. They're definitely brighter and more energy efficient than the old fluorescent tubes, and you'll notice a difference right away. Thanks Active Grow!!
Buy these. The 4 lights arrived promptly. They were very well packaged. I used these light to replace 4 older T12 florescent lamps. Following the directions that came with the lamps for removing the ballast was easy. I rewired 2 lamp fixtures using some wire nuts that I had on hand. These lamps seem to be about twice as bright as the older florescent lamps.
Great for Orchids. I swapped out my old T5 and T8 fluorescent tubes for Active Grow full spectrum LED lights about a year ago in all of my orchid growing stands. The results a year later are better than I could have expected the light quality is excellent and I'm blooming orchids that I was never able to bloom under fluorescents. Growth has been fantastic larger, more vigorous growths and great roots. Highly recommended!
