I never ran the same Led more than once before giving them away. Instead of one power cord per fixture I have to run 3. Thanks, led manufactures, my OCD loves you all.
Do led grow light manufactures grow plants? 15 years ago it was common knowledge that 6500k grew massive roots for veg. Now you can't find anything but 3500k all purpose craplights.
It was common knowledge you needed lots of red for bloom. None of these Led lights have enough red, not even close.
So we have an entire species of phosphorus deficient plants grown indoors with tiny root systems, and no one knows why?
The reason is because the light manufactures know you'll keep upgrading as these lights get closer to what they should've been and could've easily been all along.
Example of Led lights practically everyone has been sold:

Example of next years model, with proper 660 levels:

But where's the UV? Oh it falls outside of PAR so it's useless, just like 730nm. Lol.
So proper [email protected]
comes in the 2025 lineup ,proper uv-b in 2026 season, by the time 730 is at acceptable levels they'll take the uv back out. It'll be 2050 before an Led grow light actually makes sense by my calculation.
These general purpose grow light manufactures have never grown plants.. Or, have intentionally produced shit lights in order to sell upgrades under a new model next year, indefinitely.
The mentality of these unpracticed manufactures tells me a decent bloom spectrum will hit the market before a decent veg spectrum. What good is a decent bloom light without massive rhizo/cytokinin dominance? It's 2023 and I have to remove my vegs lights and lower bloom lights from the rafters like WCW Sting.
Ridiculous, no one makes a panel with a veg/bloom switch, that also actually has a halfway logical spectrum.
