Your Guide to Selecting LED Grow Light Kits

LED growing kits provide users with the basic necessities to plant and harvest vegetation indoors. There are many types of kits available on eBay to meet the needs of different growers. When maintained properly, users will yield the same results as if the plants or vegetation were planted outdoors.

Are LED lights in kits replaceable?

Yes, LEDs are replaceable. The technology used in these bulbs is created to last a long time, but the bulbs can be replaced if needed. Lights are either hardwired or use plug and play features. When replacing the bulbs, it's important to determine whether hardwired or plug and play ballast action is involved. If the LEDs are being used with a ballast, it's important to check ballast compatibility.

Are all kits the same size?

No, many different sizes are available. The size that works for a grower will depend on the vegetation being grown. Some vegetation cannot be grown too close to other types of plants to prevent contamination. The number of accessories used in a growing environment also determines how much space is required for success. The most common sizes are:

  • 400
  • 800
  • 1000
Can LED grow operations be purchased new or used?

Yes, LED set-ups are available in new and used condition. New products can be purchased for new set-ups or to add to existing set-ups. Used products can also be used alone or added to existing set-ups. Some growers will add to a set-up by purchasing tents and other accessories. Used accessories for growing success can include:

  • Vents
  • Fans
  • Humidity controllers
  • Pots
  • Drying racks
Are growing set-ups only for use indoors?

Yes, this type of product should only be used indoors. The purpose of this product is to create the natural effects of the outdoors in an area where natural sunlight does not exist. Growing set-ups should be placed in an area that is able to be temperature controlled and provides four walls and a roof. Atriums, greenhouses, basements, and the interiors of houses are all possible set-up locations.
