How To Grow Anything, Any Where, With Aspect LED Grow Lights

Perfect for plants of all sizes and sunlight requirements

1

Full Sun Plants

Full sun plants can be challenging; however they usually also the most intriguing and rewarding. Traditionally these varieties of plants are grown outdoors where they can receive as much sun as possible.

Recommendation:
  • View Large Aspect
2

High Light Plants

High light plants require a higher level of sun than most others. Traditionally, these plants would do best in a south facing window where they would receive direct light most of the day.

Recommendation:*
  • View Large Aspect
  • View Small Aspect

*Your choice depends on the size of the plant.

3

Moderate Light Plants

Moderate light plants, sometimes called medium light plants, are plants that only require a moderate level of sun and are often known to be the easy plants to care for. Traditionally, moderate light plants should stay out of direct sunlight but still should be in a bright room.

Recommendation:*
  • View Large Aspect
  • View Small Aspect

*Your choice depends on the size of the plant and how high you want to hang the Aspect.

4

Low Light Plants

While all plants need some light to live, low light plants are plants are the most adaptable to low-light conditions making them an easy green addition to low lit spaces.

Recommendation:
  • View Small Aspect

How Low Can You Go?

Finding the right distance between the Aspect grow light and your plant can be a challenge. The hanging height may vary if your plant already receives natural light. Below are the hanging heights and corresponding coverage area for both the small and large Aspect grow light assuming your plant receives NO sunlight. Make sure to pay attention to your plants. Adjust the hanging height if you notice your plant stretching or the leaves burning.
