Telos Advanced Spectrum
At Telos we have developed two spectra for our grow lights: one for indoor growing and one for growing in greenhouses. Both are full spectrum meaning they emit all wavelengths of light in the 400-700nm PAR range. The indoor spectrum has been carefully balanced to drive photosynthesis while ensuring other pigments are not compromised. The greenhouse spectrum has been designed with more blue light than the indoor spectrum to off-set plant stretching which ofen occurs in greenhouses due to high levels of far red light. If you are interested in purchasing a light with our greenhouse spectrum, please contact us.

Photosynthesis and Green Light
Green Light and the McCree Curve
Many companies focus their spectrum on delivering the optimal light for photosynthesis. Traditionally this meant using light soley from the blue and red part of the spectrum as studies showed that these are the wavelengths most absorbed by chlorophyll A and B and therefore are drivers of photosynthesis. But chlorophyll A and B absorbtion is not the only factor in photosynthesis.
