Solacure Flower Power UVB & UVR8 Lamp
Solacure Flower Power UVB & UVR8 Lamp 1M or 1.2M Lamps are a supplementary light source with an entirely unique spectrum, that when added to the growing environment provide a list of responses that are very beneficial to the indoor grower.
- Boosting resins, oils, terpenes and flavonoids.
- Killing Powdery Mildew and other types of moulds.
- Increase production of unique plant compounds from between 20% – 35%,
- Killing and suppressing soft shelled insects, including spider mite, thrips and aphids.
- More compact, denser flowers.
- Includes 1 x Solacure Flower Power UVB & UVR8 Lamp
What to expect from Flower Power lamps:
Increase production of unique plant compounds from between 20% – 35%, with many growers reporting increases of 35%+. Patented technology makes this possible through the stimulation of the UVR8 protein, which is triggered by UVB radiation at 288nm. This, in turn, stimulates plants to produce more compounds to protect itself from the increased UVB.
Kill or supress Powdery Mildew. These lamps are proven to help eliminate PM and other moulds which cannot live in a high UV environment. They are not a substitute for good sanitation, but provide extra insurance that PM won’t sneak up on you.
Kill or supress insects. The 66% UVA portion of the lamps is modelled after the sun, but is more intense. In a growroom, where there is nowhere to hide, insect populations will drastically reduce before they multiply.
More compact, denser flowers and less ‘legginess’ during flowering. High UVB exposure reduces how much taller plants get during flowering, as the plant converts energy from growing taller stems into producing more unique plant compounds.
How Does Solacure Flower Power UVB & UVR8 Lamp Work?
UVR8 is a protein which is produced by some types of plants in defence against light. It is stimulated by light at 288nm. UVB light (within the range of 280-320nm), is normally received from the sun. When a plant detects at 288nm, it produces the protein. This protein acts as a chemical messenger which in turn, signals to the plant to secrete more oils and resins to help protect itself from the rays.
By adding supplementary light into an indoor growing environment, growers can artificially stimulate this response and benefit significantly. Triggering the protein during the flowering season, will make plants shift resources from growth to protection. This means they will grow less tall and instead produce significantly more oils and resins
Not only this, virtually no lamps produce in the 280-320nm range due, in part, to the limitations of the glass. Solacure lamps are the sole exception as they use a type of glass designed specifically for transparency across the entire spectrum.
This patented glass technology, combined with our unique blend of phosphors and high output, is what makes Solacure lamps the most effective producers of UVA and light, and the only lamps capable of triggering the full effect.
