I thought about where to post this article and settled on this thread because the piece is not really about cannabis.
However, what really caught my attention in the article was the reference to the outstanding excellence of LED lights.
I have been on the sidelines watching the development of LEDs for cannabis growing for several years now.
The fact is that I have amassed a relatively large collection of various HIDs over the years and found it difficult to justify giving LEDs a try. Heat is not a concern for me, neither is needing to reduce my electric bill. Considering that I have access to the sun throughout the year and grow the majority of my plants with natural lighting all year long, I have not been motivated to give new LEDs a try.
However, I have found @Baudelaire threads and posts(regarding LEDs) to be very informative and enticing, and the price point he offers seems more than reasonable.
This is what I found to be the most compelling takeaway from the article!
The “speed breeding” technique uses LED lights in intensive periods of 22 hours per day—which emit more blue and red lights that allow plants to grow quicker.
Here is the piece:
