It is very simple to install and operate with only an on/off switch and a dial to set the intensity which is great for young plants or clones. Check out our review the best led grow lights and grow tents.
The LED panel is designed for the indoor grower and provides the full spectrum of light for both vegetative and flowering stages of growth. This small panel is perfect for a small indoor garden for a few plants.
