Clippable LED Grow Lights for a Smaller Orchid Collection
Clippable LED lights are designed for novices and professionals alike who want to grow orchids indoors.
Simply clip the lights onto a shelf, windowsill, or table, making it extremely easy to provide the proper lighting conditions for your orchids to produce flowers — even if they aren’t nestled in a bright location.
Clippable LEDs Provide the Perfect Lighting Spectrum
Clippable LED lights boast a 40-50cm coverage and can shine up to three lights at a time.
They can also switch between blue and red lights — benefiting both the vegetative and growth stages of your orchid plant.
How? Blue light causes the plants to grow healthy leaves and stems while red light enables the plant to flower.
Moreover, these lights have five intensity levels and a built-in timer for ultimate orchid care.
Plus, the built-in timer can be set for three, six, or twelve hours. It can even run indefinitely — although that’s not recommended because plants need a period of darkness for their metabolism to work properly. Plus, overheating your plant can lead to heatstroke, causing it to suffer.
Clippable LED Grow Lights Are Just What Your Orchids Require
If you have a personal collection of orchids and are looking for an easy way to provide them with the required lighting to grow flowers — contact Hippie House today and order yourself a set of clippable LED lights.
T5 Fluorescent Grow Lights Provide Reliable Lighting For Plants
Owing to recent advancements in technology, LED lights provide ideal care for growing orchid plants.
For example, LED lights offer a full spectrum of light with boosts in the vegetative and flowering stages rather than specific wavelengths — mimicking the sun's natural light spectrum.
In other words, full spectrum light provides all wavelengths of light at once instead of just one wavelength at a time.
And full spectrum light is white in colour, rather than red, blue, or purple. This white light is easier on the eyes — making it the perfect choice to display and admire the beauty of your dancing lady collection.
LED Grow Lights Offer Superior Canopy Penetration
Another reason LED lights are ideal for orchids is the superior canopy penetration they offer. This means the lights can be placed further away from your plants yet still provide plenty of light.
Unlike T5 grow lights, which must be placed 30cm above the canopy, LED lights can be placed up to 1.5 meters above the canopy.
As a result, this space will allow your orchid to stem plenty of flowers without being inhibited by your light fixture.
LED Grow Lights Have Long Life Spans
LED grow lights emit very little heat without the need for fans, just like the T5 lights. There’s no need to worry about your plants getting heatstroke.
And LED lights are money savers in the long term because they can provide light for 50,000-60,000 hours.
As a result, you could end up going years without ever buying a replacements bulb — saving you money in the long run.
Are LED Grow Lights the Lighting Care You Need for Your Orchid Plants?
If you’re eager for a display that’s easy on the eyes — white light LEDs may be for you.
But remember: If your orchids need room to grow tall and produce flowers, the LED grow lights available at Hippie House are your best bet.
But that’s not the best part….

More Orchid Care Tips For Flowering Orchid Plants
HID Grow Lights Are Not Recommended
Due to the fact that HID grow lights run extremely hot, they are not recommended — especially for novice growers.
This is because abrasive heat can cause sunburn and heatstroke to your plant. In other words, the moisture will evaporate from your orchids, requiring a lot of extra care to nurse them back to health.
Growing and tending to flowering orchids can be a gratifying experience if you understand your particular orchid species’ unique needs.
