Guide: Planting UV Recommendations, Information, and Tips
General UV Information & Tips
UV light is measured in lux (lumen/sq. meter) and directly affects your plant’s ability to grow.
Plants thrive in different lux ranges, but most plants require between 5k and 100k lux per day in order to convert the UV light energy into food, a process known as photosynthesis.
Recommended UV Ranges
If you are unsure what kind of light your plants require, consult a local horticulture professional for details.
