For saving space and soil, this method also has several
other benefits, including no soil-borne diseases, no
weeds to pull and no soil to till, run-of-the-mill side
benefits of soil-less gardening.

The Ultimate Grow Light is Now Accessible

The Plasmalyte Sunstream 400 is the latest development in full-spectrum hydroponic lighting. While many recent grow lighting innovations are designed to narrow the light spectrum available for hydroponic growing, this mature plasma fixture goes in a different direction, offering a natural, sun-like alternative.

Plasma grow lights incorporate the knowledge that many complex processes in optimal plant development are dependent on the energy and information that plants receive from across the spectrum:
  • UV for plant hardiness, vitamin production, potency flavors, and aromas 
  • Blue light for phototrophic and photosynthetic response 
  • Green light for penetration of the greenhouse canopy and absorption by tightly packed plant 
  • Red-orange light for photosynthesis and budding 
  • Far-red light to further support flowering
The continuous Sunstream spectrum maintains the correct balance of these wavelengths with proportions that closely follow natural sunlight.

This high quality light is generated by an efficient tic tac size plasma bulb using 40% less energy than the HID fixtures it replaces. The Sunstream design maximizes passive cooling to ensure the seven year life-span of the light source.

Plasmalyte is launching the Sunstream on Kickstarter in order to bring this sunlight substitute to all hydroponic growers at a best in class price. The campaign page provides additional detail on the technology’s ability to harness all of the wavelengths necessary for healthy and high quality growth.
