For seedlings, the ideal humidity range is between 80-90%. Low humidity for seedlings will result in loss of moisture and the death of a seedling. A humidity dome with small holes in the top or sides may do the trick to help them keep in moisture.

LED Grow Labs product specifications are labeled as total Wattage, or otherwise known as power of the light or LED power draw. There can be some confusion when trying to understand the total power draw as opposed to total Wattage of our products. A very basic calculation to help understand Wattage is: Power (Watts) = Voltage x I (Current)
LED Grow Labs products are put into different groups based on their AMPS (Current) of the LED diodes within the actual LED Light. 1 watt LED diodes generally generate around 0.35 AMPS, 2 Watt LED diodes run at around 0.5 AMPS and 3 watt LED diodes run around 0.7 AMPS. Each LED diodes watt is not maximized with the current so that the manufacturer can increase the overall lifespan of each LED., and reduce the heat output. Read more
