What if we told you that growing tomatoes with LED grow lamp is not only possible but also allows you to have even more nutritious vegetables than a normal cultivation based exclusively on sunlight? Would you take us for crazy?
The Use of LED Grow Lights
The use of LED lights is a fundamental factor. It is best in the field of indoor cultivation. We can say it is an increasingly growing trend. Furthermore, it allows you to grow vegetables directly at home even for those who do not have a vegetable garden or a special open space in the open.
Nowadays LED grow lamp is the best private cultivation system. Thanks to the many advantages it brings, first of all the considerable energy savings that it allows to its user. A factor to always keep in mind when choosing to invest in something, be it a passion or a new business.
But the benefits of using LED lighting don't end there. According to a study conducted by researchers at Wageningen University, LED lights produce better results than traditional fluorescent bulbs in terms of product nutrients as well. A discovery that could revolutionize the future of indoor cultivation and beyond.
Higher vitamin C in tomatoes grown under LED grow lamp
The study carried out by Philips in collaboration with the Dutch university revealed a greater presence of vitamin C. It is rich in antioxidant properties, in vegetables that grow with the help of an additional dose of LED lighting.
The interest of the university scholars have always focused on the correlation between healthy food and the environment. It precisely highlighted the usefulness of LED bulbs in greenhouse and indoor crops.
It was therefore decided to cultivate different types of plants in greenhouses. Moreover, it is possible by increasing the natural exposure to light of the vegetables with the extra lighting of LED grow lamp. A system advises capable of lighting from below rather than from above. Thus, it reaches the most hidden areas of the plants.
By doing this, it was possible to exploit the full potential of the plant, obtaining excellent results.
How to analyze led grow lamp?
Analyzing them, in fact, it emerged that the tomatoes exposed to this source of artificial lighting had a quantity of vitamin C. It is equal to the double of that present in tomatoes under sunlight. It was despite the amount of extra light of LED grow lamp was only a quarter of the intensity of the natural one.
As also happens for the cultivation of microgreens (micro vegetables). In some cases, thanks to the use of LED light, we have seen peaks of nutrients up to 20 times higher than the vegetable grown in the traditional way. Moreover, it is precisely for this reason that the microgreens common as "food of the future".
Why choose LED grow lamp for growing indoor tomatoes?
In nature, the fundamental elements for plant growth are soil, water and sunlight. Over the years, new techniques appeared. These are capable of recreating a natural environment as much as possible. First of all greenhouse cultivation requires large spaces and, in any case, is often of lower quality than traditional crops.
But the real revolution came with indoor cultivation. Furthermore, this uses LED lighting. It is to feed the growth of the plant and can also be good in very small spaces. Moreover, it comes without the need for a garden to grow plants or even a climate.
An alternative cultivation method such as hydroponics (i.e. soilless), for example, is an ideal solution in these cases.
Health and energy saving
In addition to solving these problems, LED grow lamp are extremely efficient and also allow significant energy savings and, according to this Dutch study, a final product even richer in beneficial properties such as vitamin C.
The LED lights come to withstand unconventional atmospheric conditions. Moreover, we can adjust them according to the season and the degree of temperature the plant needs. Furthermore, it ensures that it is never too hot or too cold.
And if, using this technique, vegetables grow even more nutritious, not only your energy bill will benefit from the benefits of LED lighting, but also your health.
The end of pesticides and pollutants
The cultivation of tomatoes through greenhouses and LED lamps brings another important advantage:
- the total absence of pollutants
In fact, by growing in the appropriate LED grow lamp, you will no longer have to use pesticides and / or drugs and, by using appropriate soil, your plants will be free of any harmful substance.

The new LED grow lamp with very low consumption
Very interesting is the new low consumption led grow model with high production yield, a lamp designed to grow plants, fruit and vegetables of all kinds that consumes only 4 * euro of electricity for 1 month of cultivation!
Light is a fundamental aspect for plant growth. In the case of indoor greenhouse cultivation, then, the lighting takes place with the help of lamps. An excellent system that can, however, lead to a considerable consumption of electricity in the home or in cannabis light production systems , since the lamps must remain on at least 12 hours a day.
Savings, yield and quality in a single lamp
As you have seen, if you choose our growing led for your grow room you will gain not only in terms of quantity but also in quality of the product. The plant, in fact, will be able to grow in LED grow lamp, the best possible conditions, protected, cared for and ready to bloom following the rhythms of nature, even if indoors.
And your pockets will also gain from it, thanks to the considerable savings in electricity that this new solution allows.
