As of late we are seeing a lot of hype around Morsen LED grow lights. Several reviews have been posted about the caliber of these LED’s and we wanted to find out if the cost is worth the grow you get from these light boxes.
Giving in, we went out and purchased a set of Morsen 2400 watt LED Grow Lights, combined with a Mars Hydro Diamond Mylar Grow Tent to accommodate all of our plants. Seemed to be a good combo for our Morsen LED grow light. If you are considering a Morsen LED grow light then read on…
What We Loved About Morsen LED Grow Lighting
- Excellent Heat Distribution – I hate a hot grow tent. Even more so, heat reduces your lamps lifespan. The built-in fans are whisper quiet and reduce heat big time
- Strong Full Spectrum Lighting – Like many grow lights out there, Morsen comes through with lighting for all plant stages and cycles
- Adjustable and Customizable Lighting – All inclusive lighting allows you to make the adjustments you need with ease
What We Disliked About Morsen LED Grow Lights
- Customer Service – If you run into an issue you might feel like you’re on your own with this light. We had to wait for a response after a couple of days.
- Advertised as a 600w HPS Replacement – In our particular grow, even with a diamond mylar tent we would say it replaces an HPS light around 300 to 400 Watt HPS bulb.
Although there were a couple of minor drawbacks with our 2400-Watt Morsen LED grow light review, overall the light performed well in the conditions we put it through. A great addition to any gardener’s arsenal.
The full spectrum light penetration easily breaks through the canopy of your plants all while staying as cool as a cucumber.
Complete Review of The Morsen 2400w LED Grow Light
Below is a summation of the pro features from Morsen 2400w grow light. Hype?
Morsen 2400w LED Grow Light Fans
The most striking feature of this Morsen LED grow light is its fans. We were a fan (no pun intended). Powerful fans that are quiet compared to other models such as the Platinum LED p1200. Although the Platinum’s fans are quiet but compared to the Morsen 2400w LED’s fans it is night and day.
In fact, the hype about the Morsen must come from the fact that, yes, these fans are quiet, but on top of that the fans also have a switch that allows adjustment of the fans intensity. Perfect for seedlings and young plants so they don’t stress them out with a gale force wind.
How Is the Spectrum on These Lights?
To put it bluntly…
The Spectrum is quite remarkable for these lights. We were highly impressed by the growing power of this full spectrum LED grow light set up. Providing ideal amounts if UV as well as IR light. These lights do a great job at replicating natural sun light with yellows and white spectrum lighting. Years of plant evolution in the outdoors has created a need for your saplings to yearn for sun light replicated spectrum.
Many manufacturers claim sun replicated light. With Morsen they also claim it, but the difference is they are correct vs other manufacturers out there. For this reason alone, the Morsen is a solid pick when setting up a grow indoors. Sun replicated light is huge, and although many claim their LED’s can produce this, the ultimate proof comes from a healthy grow. A healthy grow was grown indeed.
What Does Full Spectrum Lighting Mean?
If you are new to indoor gardening, then you will want to be aware of what this means. Full Spectrum lighting refers to the actual spectrums of light produced. For example the Morsen LED grow light or any grow light with full spectrum for that matter, falls within the lighting types that plants love and absorb. Further, this type of light promotes photosynthesis within plant cells to create beautiful and succulent plant that thrives.
Lighting that Cannabis Plants Love
Radiation of light is measured in nanometers (nm). NM’s measure the wavelengths of light emitted to the one-billionth of a meter. The lower the nanometer the lower the wavelength. Make sense? Probably not.
In other words, the spectrum that cannabis thrives in typically falls into a range of 400 to 700 nanometers.
Old school LEDs from a few years back had many drawbacks when it came to growing plants indoors. Sure, they lowered energy costs through LED magic, but they only came through on a narrow spectrum of lighting.
Early manufacturers focused on blue and red lighting spectrums to promote chlorophyll production but did not realize the power of yellow and white spectrums. This happened to create plants that were immature and produced low yields. After trial and error, manufacturers such as Morsen created grow lights to mimic the suns spectrum and found that plants in fact love multiple spectrums throughout the growing process.
Modern LED Grow Lights Evolved
The Morsen 2400 Watt LED grow light is no different. Our plants loved the full spectrum attributes of this modern LED which is as close to the spectrum of the sun as possible at this time.
The yellow spectrum that this light gives off is enough to kick off beta carotene production which regulates plant healthiness and growth that does not fall within photosynthesis.
The spectrum of the 2400 Watt Morsen LED falls around 380nm to 780nm which produces a significant amount of IR and UV which can benefit a cannabis crop. Day and night acknowledgemnt in plants come through the IR. Regulating its cycle gives the plant proper amounts of rest and growth periods associated with a 24 hour day/night cycle.
THC is a natural sunscreen for cannabis plants. It is produced to protect the plant in a sense from UV rays. When lights produce a lot of UV, THC increases as a natural blocker of these rays. The more THC, the better right? THC production also fights off mold in plants. This resin (THC) has more benefits then you might think.
Morsen 2400 watt LED grow light Quality
The light itself was shipped discreetly to us. Once the box was opened, it was apparent that this light represented quality. Solid construction and well thought out in its design.
Powering up the light and shutting it off is very easy. It has a total of 6 quiet cooling fans and comes with a 3 year warranty. The 10 watt individual bulbs consumption burned around 450 watts which is pretty good for saving on your electricity bills.
The solid construction also impressed us. No cheap plastics were used in the making of this lamp.
