Finding a grow light that can offer your plants with a full light coverage can be a daunting experience. The Viparspectra Reflector-Series 600W not only offers you with such coverage but also does it on a budget.

The unit can still be used on vegetables, more so the leafy ones like kales, spinach, and rapini. Or maybe improve the growth of your large indoor decor plants like the fiddle-leaf fig.
The Viparspectra Reflector-Series 600W grow light is strong and efficient. According to the manufacturer, you should hang these lights about 24 inches above the plants’ canopy. However, you should keep an 18 – 22-inch distance during the vegetative cycle and 14 – 16 inches in the flowering stages for the best results. On full output, this grow light will only consume 274 watts, making it more efficient than other LEDs in the market.
With this grow light, you are assured that your plants will flourish despite their growth stage.

Drawbacks of the Viparspectra Reflector-Series 600W Grow Light
Useful Tips When Using Viparspectra Reflector-Series 600W
During the cloning stages, you should place the light at a 22 to 24 inches height from the plants’ canopy. You should then let the seedlings grow, such that the distance between the light and the plants’ canopy is about 18 to 20 inches while using the vegetative switch.
When your plants are in the flowering cycle, alternate between the bloom and vegetative switch on a daily basis. You should let the plants reach a distance of 14 to 16 inches. Remember, this is the distance between the plants’ canopy and the unit. Alternating between the flowering and vegetative switch, especially for cannabis growers, ensure that your plants develop better leaves in the blooming stages.
Always keep a watch on your plants, more so in the first two weeks of flowering. You will need to adjust the light regularly. You don’t want to end up burning your cannabis plants with these strong LEDs. Whereas this light produced very low heat compared to other grow lights, being careful and consistent when changing its distance gives your plants a chance for better growth.
The purple light is very strong and can blur your vision for a few minutes when you look directly into it. Hence, you should avoid looking directly into the light. In case you find yourself in a situation where you have looked into this bright light accidentally, you should close your eyes for a few minutes to regain your vision and avoid eye strain.
