How many PPF does a grow light need?

If a single LED grow light produces a PPF of 2000µmol/s, you require 4 lamps per growing area. The PPF does not tell us how much of the measured light actually lands on the plants or any other surface. So keep in mind not every lamp with the same PPF is as effective in bringing that light down to the crops.

What is good PPF for plants?

PPFD is the measurement of the density which is expressed micromoles per square meter. The ideal photon density for peak indoor plants photosynthesize is around 500 to 700 µmol/m2. To avoid causing damage to the indoor plants we should refrain from going over 1000 µmol/m2.
