Ideal Temperature for LED

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi crowd,

 

I am new to LED growing but I read somewhere that when switching to LED from HID its a good idea to run your temps higher (close to 30) if you want comparable results. The explanation for why you should do this made sense and has to do with the fact the spectrum of light received from HID lights means a higher leaf surface temperature then when using LEDs. Anyone have any practical experience with this? Other LED growers, what temperatures are you running?

Sup dude...

It's because of the radiant heat that HIDs give off that we run the room cooler.

LED you wanna run the room between a low of 26C and a high of 28C... I'm sure the LED guys here will be able to chip in with what highs they have run their rooms at without causing issues like heat stress, airy buds, etc.

I think ultimately it comes down to VPD (Vapor Pressure Deficit), there are a few charts on the internet which you can use as a reference.

 

Generally speaking, you do not want very high temps during flower as this can negatively affect your terpenes.
