Vegetation Light MC580VC

Best practices for cannabis plants entering the vegetative stage is 18 hours of light per day (a cycle referred to as 18/6). Some growers prefer plants as large as possible, keeping them under lighting for 24 hours per day. You can manipulate early stage lighting for better cannabis vegetation; more lighting for better growth and future yield.

Our MC580VC series of LED growing lights are designed specifically for cannabis vegetation stage, producing a lower 580 wattage, ideal for longer lighting cycles.
