Product Overview

PhotonTube™ is a new LED tube product line that has its light output tuned to the spectral and intensity needs of growing plants. The T8 PhotonTube™ offers 33 umols/sec of photon output, with spectral coverage across the PAR spectrum from 420 nm to 800 nm.

Because this is a full-spectrum product, the resulting light output is a soft white color that simulates natural daylight, rather than the harsh pink/magenta light color typically seen in grow lights. This makes it easier and more comfortable for you, the grower, to see and observe your plants, and spot any diseases or infestations before it's too late.

Our PhotonTube™ LED grow lights are available in 4000K and 6500K, with 95 CRI and R9 > 80 - this indicates a color spectrum that comes very close to natural sunlight.

These T8 LED tubes are UL Type A and Type B compatible, meaning they can be used with or without a fluorescent ballast. Plug it in directly to your existing T8 fixture, or a new fixture with the ballast removed - whatever is easier!

4000K provides an excellent spectral output for strong growth and flowering. In addition to strong output in the blue 450 nm region, RedBoost red phosphor technology ensures sufficient coverage in the deep red portion of the spectrum past 700 nm, targeting chlorophyll A absorption in particular.

The spectral ratio simulates late-season light, stimulating plant processes that encourage flowering and fruit growth.

The 6500K spectrum comes very close to natural daylight, truly simulating what plants have adapted to over many generations. It is especially well suited for seedling growth, and helps to prevent them from becoming "leggy" as the spectral dosage perfectly matches that of natural daylight.

Plants in the seedling stage require significant amounts of blue light to encourage vegetative growth, as it is similar to a high sun-angle spectral composition that is typically observed in early-season grow periods.

Seedling and vegetative growth are absolutely critical components of healthy plants. Without a healthy foundation, plants can suffer from stunted growth and limited yield.

Great service

Shipped quickly. Great packaging. Very responsive customer service for any questions and support.

Eric U
Started right up!

I just finished rewiring (took out the ballasts) my plant growing shelves to accommodate LED lighting. These are working fine. Fast shipping; compared with other sources of this specific type, price competitive.

Shannon C

Ordered the led tubes to put in old flourescent fixtures for a cheaper version of grow lights and they are perfect! Fast shipping, quality packaging - will def re-order from here if needed!

Zoe Blatter
Expensive but excellent light!

We used these in our retail greenhouse to replace bulbs in old Florescent fixtures which had blasts that were starting to go out. The upgrade in light quality is very welcome!

Do yourself a favor

I purchased two waveform T8 style 6500k Horticulture tube lights last year and just received my order of four more. No more burning of my plants because of having the regular T5 lights to close and no more plants stretching because you have to keep the lights several inches from the plants to keep from burning them. Your seedlings can literally touch the Waveform T8 style 6500k Horticulture led tubes and not burn. Plants grow exceptionally well under them compared to regular T5 lights I seen the difference last year and the plants under the Waveform T8 leds grew healthier in all ways compared to those under the regular T5 lights. So if you are wondering if the Waveform T8 style 6500k Horticulture tube lights are worth the money....don't wonder...do you plants a favor and buy them.
