Highly recommended for grow tents and any growing environment where heat is an issue, Parabolic Grow Lights have always been, and continue to be, one of our best selling grow lights. The 80cm version is suitable for 250W, 400W & 600W lamps and will fit in grow tents 90cm2 and above.
In a horizontal reflector the lamp is mounted horizontally with the light and heat being directed downwards to the area directly beneath the reflector. With a Parabolic, the lamp is mounted vertically allowing heat to be directed away from the plants.
This means that when large areas of soil are being covered, the plants are under less heat stress. It also means that the soil stays fresher for longer and reduces the chance of a nutrient imbalance in the later life of the plant. In grow tents this allows the light to be relected into the plants rather than being directly aimed at them, this seems to be more effective than traditional horizontal reflector lighting and reult in both better yields and heathly plants.
