Flower Power UVR8 lamps from Solacure 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.
Benefits include –
Solacure UVR8 lamps use a type of glass designed specifically for transparency across the entire UVB spectrum unlike most glass used by light manufacturers.
This patented glass technology, combined with Solacure’s unique blend of phosphors and high output, is what makes these lamps the most effective producers of UVA and UVB light and the only lamps capable of triggering the full UVR8 effect.
UVR8 is a protein which is produced by some types of plants in defence against UVB light. It is stimulated by UVB light at 288nm.
UVB light (within the range of 280-320nm), is normally received from the sun. When a plant detects UVB at 288nm, it produces the UVR8 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 UVB rays.
By adding supplementary UVB light into an indoor growing environment, growers can artificially stimulate this response and benefit significantly.
Triggering UVR8 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.
