Introduction
ELPL T5HO Grow Lights/Tubes

EconoLux Industries Limited produces the world's first purpose deigned T5HO Plant/Grow light lamps/Tubes. These lamps have been designed to have the closest match to the PAR curve possible, within the limits of the technology. Unlike other T5HO "grow lamps" on the market, the EconoLux T5HO lamps were purpose designed with extensive R&D, to optimize the spectrum for plant growing.

They produce about 95% of light useful to plant growth, so little energy is wasted making light the plants can't use, saving on your power bills. They also offer the flexibility of increasing coverage area, or light intensity, by adding more low cost fixtures and lamps. While the T5HO lamps have much shorter lifespan than LED grow lights, they are a much lower costs option.

Single, dual and quad tube fixtures are readily available locally, with local electrical approvals, saving you on shipping costs. These T5HO lamps/tubes are a budget conscious choice for the smaller grower while providing good quality grow lighting, with a reasonably close match to the PAR curve (about 50%).


The ELPL-T5HO lamps are available in four different types:

◊ VG type (blue end caps): These lamps are best suited to germination, raising seedlings and clones, or the vegetative stage of the plants growth cycle as they have plenty of blue light output.

◊ FL lamps (gold end caps): These lamps are best suited to plants that are in the flowering, fruiting or budding stage of their cycle as they produce more red light output than blue light output.

◊ XR lamps (red end-caps): These have maximum red output and can be used in combination with XR or VG lamps to boost the red light portion of the spectrum, These are supplementary lamps and should not be sole source of light for your plants and they have little blue output, and even flowering/budding plants need some blue light.

◊ UV+ lamps (violet end caps): These lamps/tubes are designed as supplemental lamps as they emit mainly UVA and UVB light and are suitable for 'finishing' applications such developing the colour on red lettuce, increasing resin production in medicinal plants, and increasing "bag appeal".
CAUTION: The UV+ lamps are supplementary lamps and should not be used as sole source of light for your plants as they have little blue and red output - almost all of the light is produced outside of the PAR curve.

ELPL T5HO-VG - Vegetative Lamps

ELPL T5HO-VG Grow Lights/Tubes

Designed for growing vegetative (non-flowering and leafy green) plants or for use in sprouting, germination or cloning areas, where early plant growth, and the vegetative stage of growth requires additional blue light. The VG type offers a balance of 53.5% Blue to 31.7% Red light output (excess green light has been deducted) - a Blue:Red ratio of 5.3:3.2 - Ideal for the vegetative phase of growth.

ELPL T5HO-FL - Flower/Bloom Lamps

ELPL T5HO-FL Grow Lights/Tubes

Designed for growing flowering plants or for use in the flowering or fruiting stage of plant growth, where this phase requires additional Red light. The FL type offers a balance of 38.3% Blue to 47.2% Red light output (excess green light has been deducted) - a Blue:Red ratio of 3.8:4.8 - Ideal for the flowering/budding/fruiting phase of growth.

ELPL T5HO-XR (Xtreme Red) Lamps

ELPL T5HO-XR Grow Lights/Tubes

Designed as supplemental lamps when growing flowering plants, for use in the flowering or fruiting stage of plant. The XR lamps can provide an extra 'boost' of red light during the flowering/budding stage of growth.

CAUTION: The XR type lamps are not designed for use as the sole source of light for plant growth as they have very little blue output (flowering plants require some blue light). The XR lamps are intended to be used in an array of VG or FL lamps as supplemental red lights, or as side-lights, when you need to increase red light for flowering/fruiting. The XR type lamps offer a balance of 17.3% Blue to 70.1% Red light output (excess green light has been deducted) - a Blue:Red ratio of 1.7:70 - Ideal for boosting Red light during the the flowering/budding phase of growth.

ELPL T5HO-UV+ (UVA + UVB) Finishing Lamps

ELPL T5HO-UV+ XR Grow Light

Designed as supplemental lamps as they emit mainly UVA and UVB light and are suitable for 'finishing' applications such developing the colour on red lettuce, increasing resin production in medicinal plants, and increasing "bag appeal".

CAUTION: The UV+ lamps are supplementary lamps and should not be sole source of light for your plants and they have little blue and red output - almost all of the light is produced outside of the PAR curve.

DANGER: These lamps emit significant amounts of UVB light. You must wear appropriate eye and sink protection when working nearby these lamps, or turn the lamps off to avoid exposure.

The PAR curve is NOT included as these lamps are not designed for use as the sole light source for plant cultivation. Much of the light output from the UV+ lamps falls below the PAR region, in the UV region of the spectrum.
