torres.kvin I can only comment might not be bright enough to light the number of plants, such as HC and glossy. But you can do. In addition, if you can clear the smoke pipe and the lily color.

How do I get one of those fixtures if I'm not in the Bay Area? They (AFA) don't sale that one on-line from what I can tell.

dmcentire Yes the LED light does a lot of shimmering, I'll try to capture that with a tripod mounted camera sometime this week.

Yes Redwood City

I am in Redwood City, CA - in the San Francisco Peninsula area. How do I get in touch with him?

Also, is this the definition of PAR?

"The expression Photosynthetically Active Radiation, often abbreviated PAR, designates the spectral range of solar light from 400 to 700 nanometers that is useful to terrestrial plants in the process of photosynthesis."

deleted_user_16 Is emerald hills in norcal? If so, I think tom barr will loan you his par meter.

PAR output

I'd love to find out what the PAR is for lighting in general, and how to find it out for the lights I have. I am thinking about picking up a lumens meter, but I am not sure if that will measure PAR.

deleted_user_16 Par is more important that lumenous ouput, what's the par reading on those LEDs?
