30% more Resins and Oils
Increase production of unique plant compounds from between 20% - 35%, with many growers reporting increases of 35%+. Our patented technology makes this possible through the stimulation of the UVR8 protein, which is triggered by UVB radiation at 288nm. This, in turn, stimulates plants to produce more compounds to protect themselves from the increased UVB.
No Powdery Mildew
Kill or supress Powdery Mildew. Our lamps are proven to help eliminate PM and other moulds which cannot live in a high UV environment. They are not a substitute for good sanitation, but provide extra insurance that PM won’t sneak up on you.
Kill or supress insects. The 66% UVA portion of our lamps is modelled after the sun, but is more intense. In a growroom, where there is nowhere to hide, insect populations will drastically reduce before they multiply.
More compact, denser flowers and less ‘legginess’ during flowering. High UVB exposure reduces how much taller plants get during flowering, as the plant converts energy from growing taller stems into producing more unique plant compounds.
Unlock UVR8 for more unique plant compounds...
UVR8 is a protein which is produced by some types of plants in defence against UVB light. It is stimulated by UVB light at 288nm.
UVB light (within the range of 280-320nm), is normally received from the sun. When a plant detects UVB at 288nm, it produces the UVR8 protein. This protein acts as a chemical messenger which in turn, signals to the plant to secrete more oils and resins to help protect itself from the UVB rays.
Only Solacure lamps have the UVR8 effect
Virtually no lamps produce UVB in the 280-320nm range due, in part, to the limitations of the glass. Solacure lamps are the sole exception as they use a type of glass designed specifically for transparency across the entire UVB spectrum.
This patented glass technology, combined with our unique blend of phosphors and high output, is what makes Solacure lamps the most effective producers of UVA and UVB light, and the only lamps capable of triggering the full UVR8 effect.
