For Growers

Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions – For Growers

At AZENTIVE we care about creating healthy people and plants. Our goal is to help you meet the demands of growing potent medicinal products that can heal as many people as possible.

We focus on healthy, hearty, and high producing plants, optimizing growth for each specific plant’s morphology and biology. Plants grown under Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions thrive at all stages of their lifecycle, boosting your profits.

Benefits

See Specifications for details about our Sun Power and Sun Light systems.

Maximize your plant. Whether you need an already powerful off-the-shelf solution or prefer a fully customized grow system, your grow house or greenhouse will see many benefits:

   

MAXIMUM YIELDS

This uniform and dense light will boost your yields by 40 to 90 percent, depending on grow methods (as reported by actual customers). Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions have the most powerful PPFD* on the market, with systems uniformly producing 2000 to 2400 micromols/s/m2 at 1 meter height.

THRIVING PLANTS

Plants thrive from more robust hardening, denser internode spacing, and more biomass per plant. Growers using Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions report that flowers develop along the entire branch of the plant for the top 75% of the plant, a substantial increase over their previous systems.

 

FULL SPECTRUM

Sun On-Demand’s Lighting Solutions’s real spectrum provides homogeneous and dense sunlight. With light emitted both inside and outside of the PAR* range, our systems are tuned to your growing needs and desired outcomes.

PRECISION CONTROL

We customize the light spectrum by strain and plant life cycle to boost targeted medical and flavor compounds. Strain-specific light spectrums optimize the intake of photons, water, CO2, nutrients, etc., and reduce the need for fertilizers, pest control, and more.

EFFICIENT & COST-EFFECTIVE

With little heat waste and 60 to 140 lumens of light output per watt of electricity, Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions are twice as efficient as daylight LEDs. Customers’ electricity cost savings are 25 to 75 percent for lighting and lighting-related air conditioning costs, allowing for short system payback periods. The 100,000-hour bulb life span also means lower long-term maintenance costs.

SUSTAINABLE

We replicate the sun because we care about healthy plants, but we also care about healthy people, places, and planet. All of the components in our lighting systems are recyclable and contain no mercury.

Comparison Chart

In this comparison of three lighting systems for a medical cannabis application, you’ll see the benefits of Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions: less energy waste, an extra grow cycle per year, and heartier plants. Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions can also be customized and optimized for specific strains, growing methods, and environments.

Energy comparisons based on an actual grow room of 1,680 sq. ft. at 1 meter above the canopy.

Vegetative Growth Period The vegetative period for harvestable height is 4 to 5 weeks (saving 2 to 3 weeks of energy). Depending on the method, the vegetative period is 6 to 8 weeks to reach a harvestable height. The vegetative period is 6 to 8 weeks to reach a harvestable height.
Flowering Growth Period Sun On-Demand plasma light can provide harvest 5 to 7 days earlier, saving up to one week. Depending on the strain, harvesting takes place after a flowering period of 45 to 60 days. Harvesting takes place after a flowering period of 45 to 60 days.
Cloning (i.e. clones and cuttings) Clones from Mother plants can be taken every 1 to 2 weeks. The cuttings are more robust and harden quicker. Clones from Mother plants using Metal Halide Lamps can be taken every 2 to 3 weeks. Clones from Mother plants can be taken every 2 to 4 weeks.

Assumptions:

1) Optimum level of lighting for the plant;
2) Vegetation and flowering cycles take place in the same room;
3) Calculations are conservative based on actual reports by growers;
4) Results depend on growing methods and cannabis strains.
5) Estimates based on a low to medium light level setup
