Read the fine print when buying lights
We are amazed at the varied claims made in advertising on the Net about grow lights. Some companies make promises but don't supply the data to back it up. Others neglect to let you know which COB is being used in the light. BSF Grow always publishes the full set of data on our products. We conduct our own testing on light output using the industry-standard Apogee Light meter using the PAR range of 400 to 700 nanometers.Read more
Plants are growing!
The hemp plants are growing in the North Carolina sunshine! We finished all of our planting by June 8th, and the plants are doing very well. The BaOx in this picture was a mom in our cloning operation, so she had a head start on growth.Read more
It is time to plant! Our goal is to produce hemp plant clones on the farm. It has been great having the Broomstraw Farm Grow Lights in our mom / clone operation. We used two BSF3590.6 units to keep the moms happy, and a BSF3590.4 to help the clones’ transition from low light domes to hoop house diffused sunlight. Having the ability to control light intensity on each of these units made it easy to adjust the amount of light for each stage of growth of our plants. The moms loved the 400 - 600 micro moles of PAR spectrum, and the clones were nurtured in 40 - 50 micro mole PAR spectrum.Read more
