Omega Far Red CFL Grow Lamp
The Omega Far Red CFL Grow Lamp is an excellent choice for the flowering stage; it’s one of the best far-red lamps available and is ideal for your hydroponic growing setup.
Omega is one of the leading players in the lighting sector, combining technical excellence with superb quality and reliability. This lamp is energy efficient and passes this low energy attribute to customers through much-reduced electricity bills.
The yields are very acceptably high, despite this. Omega Lighting’s precision-engineered lamps provide an optically superior product. Beam patterns are smoother, with striations and hot spots significantly reduced. They are energy efficient, tuned, and optimised to create higher PAR (Photosynthetic Active Radiation) output.
This Flowering Lamp has several handy attributes, and they include:
- Use two-thirds less energy than regular incandescent lamps
- Lifespan is up to ten times longer
- CFLs have a standard E40 fixture for any standard reflector fitting
- It gives off around 70% less heat than traditional incandescent lamps
- The optimum red bulb for flowering (the colour is 2700 Kelvin)
How the Far Red Flowering Lamp Works
The Omega Far Red Flowering 300w has a red colour of 2700 kelvin on the colour spectrum, making it ideal as a far-red light for plants’ bloom phase. This product is a highly energy-efficient lamp, as it is relatively inexpensive to run yet achieves very satisfying yields at harvest.
The manufacturer’s advanced ‘super-lumen’ technology means that you get more than the average wattage output from this lamp without affecting its longevity.
This lamp works alongside the Omega Blue Light companion (see below). These popular lamps are very effective in assisting the development of young plants. The lights also act as supplementary lighting throughout all main phases of your plants’ life cycle.
How Do I Use the Far Red Flowering Lamp?
The red CFL grow light has a compatriot in the form of a blue lamp, also made by Omega. The red lamp is designed specifically for the flowering stages of your plants’ life cycles, and the blue CFL grow light is for the vegetative phase of your plant in much the same way, and they are an excellent complement to one another.
CFLs use significantly less electricity and have a longer-rated lifespan than regular low-power incandescent bulbs. CFLs also tend to radiate a different light spectrum than incandescent lamps. The developers at Omega have found that improved phosphor formulations have increased the subjective colour of the visible light given off by CFLs right across the PAR Spectrum. This range is available in 125w, 200w and 250w versions.
