What is the best low budget LED grow light?

To answer this question properly, we must first put it in a context.
If we assume the following 3 situations, from a small surface to a tent of 1 x 1 meter.

Situation 1: The LED grow light in the living room

You are looking for an LED grow lamp to give your living room plant(s) some extra light because they are in a dark corner or in a room where little daylight enters. If you want to give 1 large plant or several small plants extra light to grow, it is important to choose a lamp with a white spectrum. The plants are often in a living or office space.

For small to medium plants:

This lamp uses 15 LEDs of 1 watt each and the maximum consumption of this lamp is only 17 Watt. The lamp can illuminate approximately 30 x 30 cm at 20 cm above the plant. This LED grow lamp uses a white growth spectrum, which means that a lot of blue has been incorporated into the spectrum. Here you can read why blue is so important for growth.

For small to large plants:

This lamp uses 18 LEDs of 3 Watt each with a maximum consumption of 36 Watt. That makes this lamp a lot more powerful so that you can hang the 18x3W LED grow lamp higher above the plant. At a height of 30 cm, this lamp can illuminate 45 x 45 cm, making the lamp also suitable for larger plants or several small plants. The white spectrum uses a lot of blue, which stimulates growth well. Would you like to know more about grow light for your houseplants?
