What is The California Lightworks Solarstorm 440?
A little less than a decade a ago California Lightworks began to manufacture a series of quality LED panel lights for both wholesale and direct consumer sales. Created with the series grower in mind, their innovative approach to applying only specific spectral colors combined with UV-B supplemental lighting has made them popular within the plant growing industry. Large scale, as well as home gardens, have all benefited from the unique light arrangement and construction of their series of grow light fixtures.
Plants need light to grow, specifically those from blue and red spectrum during various stages of their growing and production. Whereas the sun produces a whole myriad of colors, you only need the specific few that support the chemical process of photosynthesis- which is what allows plants to produce food for their own well being.
The Solarstorm 440 was created as a slightly larger version of some of their smaller products to offer a perfect go to light for serious home growers who weren’t looking to cover too large a space, but didn’t want to utilize more than one light at a time. (although you can hang more than one of these if you wish). This product boasts 2 LED light panels that are cable of both red and blue light spectrum, as well as UV-B tubes to help boost late stage production.
