Active Grow T5 LED Grow Lights Vs. T5 Fluorescent Tubes - Energy, Spectrum & PPFD

These tests were taken to compare Active Grow T5 24W HO 4FT LED Horticultural Lamps and T5 54W HO 4FT fluorescent lamps in an Active Grow 8 tube T5 HO fixture. The test focuses on three main areas: Energy Consumption, Spectral Analysis & PPFD Coverage.

T5 HO 4FT 4 Tube Grow Light Fixture Reviews

✮ ✮ ✮ ✮ ✮  Perfect light for your indoor garden
“I am impressed by this light. It was easy to assemble and mount. The led’s lights produce virtually no heat so I can grow my plants anywhere without having to worry about ventilation. It’s compact size does the same job as my bigger lights. My baby plants are doing good so I know the spectrum is what it’s suppose to be..” -P Muniz 09/05/18

✮ ✮ ✮ ✮ ✮  Game Changer
“I’ve been using T5 HO lamps for a while now as my primary light source. I thought I had my spectrum close to dialed in with a mix of different lamps. I had my doubts. I decided to switch over to these T5 HO daylight LEDs and was quickly blown away by the response in my garden. Deeper greens, thicker leaves, tighter growth patterns, everything. The PPFD reading is much more even throughout the ENTIRE grow space as compared to my experience with traditional T5 HOs. I can now utilize the edges of my grow space instead of just focusing on the direct center under the lamps. Literally EVERYTHING is so much better then traditional T5s that I’ll never go back again. The spectrum these lamps produce has been a total game-changer. Thank you Active Grow.” -04/30/18 Todd 

✮ ✮ ✮ ✮ ✮  High-light orchids are blooming!
“After having tried unsuccessfully to grow Cattleya orchids in my sunroom, I decided to convert an unused sauna in the basement to an orchid grow room. Did a lot of research on T5 both fluorescent and LED and bought these. They were expensive but I determined that they would be cost effective over 3+ years. I was persuaded by the fact that the have a CRI (Color Rendering Index) of 91. That was a statistic I could understand. These are truly full spectrum. There is a lot more information on the company’s web site. An interesting video that compared these to T5HO. I really swallowed hard before buying these because of the higher price. The video provided information on the quality and quantity of useful (to the plant) lights that these put out. I understand it better now, but the proof of it is what I am seeing in the plants.

I now (for the past three months) have these on 16 hours a day in my small room. They do produce some heat but far, far less than T5 fluorescents, which would have been a disaster (I see now) in my enclosed room. With two fans running and lots of humidity (trays, misting, wetting the concrete floor) I can keep the humidity high, the temperature where I want it (by keeping the door more or less open), and the air quality fresh. OK, but — what about the plants? I am now seeing the first buds on one of the Cattleyas, and most of the orchids are pushing new growths and roots. Even in my unskilled hands, the life force that I am seeing in these plants is just –truly awesome. I measured the light and it is about 1800 foot-candles very close to the lamps. Because they are on continuously for 16 hours a day, the plants are getting ample light, the rough equivalent of 3500 foot-candles in a natural environment where light waxes and wanes throughout the day. I can control the amount of light by locating the plants closer or farther from the lamps. I could never have had a setup like this with fluorescents because the heat would have never allowed me to put the plants so close to the lamps as I can with these, and the room would have been too hot. (Opening the door further would let heat out, but would also let humidity out). I have the full spectrum bulbs in all three fixtures but am anticipating trying out some of the red bulbs once we get into bud-producing season in the fall.

For the first time I can grow and flower high light orchids like Cattleyas. I am already thinking about how I may be able to install a fourth unit in the grow room. I am running out of space.” -Tessa 08/05/18
