Step 2: Choice for the LEDs

Know which LEDs you use, the spectrum is important. Do you want to stimulate the growth and flowering of your plants? Then it is best for one FullSpectrum LED strip. Is only the growth important? Then you can suffice with white, blue and possibly red light. We offer the DIY (do it yourself) Strip and a LED breeding panel At a nice price. You can of course also order them yourself via Aliexpress.

Step 3: Install the LEDs in the frame

Cut the LED breeding strip into pieces of +/- 45 cm. Make sure you cut in the right place, which is indicated on the strip. The strip is usually self -adhesive, but using extra glue can of course not hurt. Expand the connection flakes and solder the two-core wire to connect the whole.
