Viparspectra has been making the rounds within the indoor gardening circle. Many believe they are the leaders in LED lights for beginning and intermediate gardeners.

But, do they really work as well as people say? Are they worth it?

Viparspectra is a Chinese light company. It’s owned by Shenzhen Bailuo Technology Company. It’s based in Guangdong, China and wants to provide quality products at the best value.

Many indoor gardeners use their LED lights because they mimic natural sunlight. What is LED? It stands for light-emitting diodes. Basically, light is created when the flow of electrons passes through a semiconductor.

What does any of this have to do with gardening? You should use LED lights when growing things indoors because seedlings need a lot of light. In fact, lighting is one of the most important tools to make sure you actually grow healthy crops or flowers.

If you don’t have a bright enough light, your seedlings will be weak and leggy. Leggy meaning that there is too much greenery and not enough roots to support it. It makes the plant a bit floppy.

LED lights are good for lighting because they don’t give off a lot of heat while still giving intense light. They also use half of the electricity so you can save money on your bills.

LED lights that have full spectrum bulbs actually come pretty close to mimicking natural sunlight, which is ideal for seedlings. The full spectrum allows both warm and cool light—this meaning more red and blue types of light—that mimic the natural solar spectrum.

LED growing lights also let you control how long your plants are under the lights. Depending on the plant, they will want a specific amount of light and shade. These lights also let you try your hand at growing plants that are not from your area. Being able to control the lights means that you can copy the plant’s natural habitat even if you don’t live in it.

Viparspectra lights do all this and more. They come with a full spectrum, a dimmable feature, and works with all kinds of plants. The people that make up this company are growers themselves, so they know what other growers need.

There are a variety of lights this company offers. Each have their pros and cons depending on the project that you are working on and the plants you are working with.

What Makes This Company Unique

What’s interesting about this company is that they acknowledge that there are more expensive fixtures that have fancier extras. They also acknowledge that there are cheaper fixtures that have their own issues. They claim that they want to be in the middle of the two.

Most companies boast about being the best in their field, but Viparspectra has a refreshing outlook on what they want to provide to their customers. They want to make simple, well working fixtures that won’t break the bank. Their honesty makes them seem more customer friendly at the start of looking into them.

They also offer tips and tricks when it comes to how to make their lights work the best for your garden. They don’t want to leave you scratching your head while figuring how to have the best grow.

They are able to offer such good products at fair prices because they sell the products themselves through their website or Amazon. They don’t have a middle man which means that the items can cost less for you.

They also offer a 3 year warranty for all their products that may have manufacturing defects. It doesn’t cover damage from high moisture, water, power surges, improper hanging or mounting, or any user errors.

If the lights stop working within 30 days from when you purchased it, you have 3 options. One, you can exchange it and get a pre-paid label and will get a replacement sent shortly. Two, you can get a refund. You will also get a pre-paid label to send the product back.

Or three, they offer repairs and will send you parts free of charge. If the issue is too big for you to fix, you can send it to them and they will fix it for free.

What We Think

This is a good company for anyone that’s looking for a fair price on a grow light. Like they say on their site, this company is for people who do this as a hobby. So this is probably not the best for people who are looking for a professional set up.

Every person who has bought one their products has felt that they got their money’s worth. While they’re not perfect, nothing really is, it’s a great base to start with. If they don’t suit your needs, you know what to look for in your next light.

To get the most out of these lights, you should do research on what your plants need for light. Because there is a huge spectrum, it would be easy to accidentally buy the wrong one. You want to give the light and your garden the best shot it can have.

Because of their price, willingness to talk with their customers, and that they are growers themselves, Viparspectra is the perfect partner for any beginning gardener.
