Why You Will Love It!
Built In Timer
The light comes with a built-in timer that allows it to be turned on for 3 hours, 6 hours, 12 hours, or indefinitely.
Custom Light Settings
The lamp itself comes with 3 replaceable LED grow lights - with 5 light intensity levels for each setting. The lights can be controlled so that you have one, two, or all three lights on at once.
Adaptable To Fit Your Space
The HydroGlow LED light can be attached to tables with its easy to use clip. Its flexible neck allows for a versatile range of layouts for all your soil and hydroponic plants.
How It Works
Light from the sun comes in a wide range of wavelengths. Most of the light from the sun is wasted on plants as they just need a few specific wavelengths of light to grow. These useful wavlengths typically fall in the blue and red section of the visible light spectrum (between 400-500nm and 600-700nm). Our grow lights replicate this by using Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) that emit those useful wavelengths. The wavelengths emitted by this grow light can be seen in the picture. When all of these lights mix - they appear as white light to the human eye.

Setting up your grow light
Setting up your grow light is a breeze! It comes fully assembled, so all you need to do is clip it onto a table, shelf or other surface, and arrange the lights over your plants.
Positioning your grow light
Ensure the light stays at least 10cm from any leaves (so as to not burn the leaves).
Adjust the timer to suit your plant's needs
12hrs for plants in spaces with low light levels
6hrs for spaces which receive indirect natural light
3hrs for plants in high natural light environments).
Also consider the natural environment of the plant you are growing - indoor plants may not need much supplementary light, whereas something like basil will need a lot.
Adjust light brightness; we suggest starting on a dim setting and building up to the brightest setting, this will allow your plants time to adjust. If you see your leaves "burning" or browning, reduce the light intensity.
Check out the video below for our walk through on how to setup your growlight! We know the light's purple - but the setup is still the same!
How do I replace the bulb?
The HydroGlow bulbs are screw bulbs, to replace them you can simply unscrew, and re-screw the new one in! You can get replacement bulbs on our website if you ever have an issue - of course faults are covered within the first year of use.
Are these lights suitable for soil plants too?
Yes! Our lights simply imitate the wavelength of light that plants need to grow. That means you can use this for your hydroponics, aquaponics, or soil grown gardening project!
Can I use Australian Power outlets?
Yes! All of our grow lights have Australian style plugs and are RCM certified.
Does the light produce UV light?
Our grow lights use LED bulbs that emit a very small amount of UV light. Don’t panic though, the UV output is even less than most household bulbs and it definitely isn’t enough to harm your plants in any way.
What's the best way to measure the effectiveness of a grow light?
Grow lights are different to normal household light bulbs as they emit the wavelength of light that plants need to grow - measured on the PAR scale (mroe detail below). By comparison most household lights are optimised for the visible light spectrum. To understand grow light measurement you first need to know the difference between the main measurements:
Lumens - Spectrum of light that fits in the wavelength that the human eye can see.
Watts - purely a measure of energy consumption.
Kelvin - measure of "temperature" of light for example blueish or reddish light
PAR - Photosynthetic active radiation, the wavelength of light that plants need to grow.
PPFD - Photon Photosynthetic flux density, or the intensity of light produced in the spectrum required for plant growth.
What's the main differece between the full spectrum and purple grow lights?
This was a great substitute for the natural light my indoor plants are currently lacking. I noticed the plants that weren't growing are now showing new growth, especially my hoyas! I would have given full points, however, the cord is quite short, so you will need to purchase the extension if not near an outlet.
I purchased two "HydroGlow" LED grow lights with three heads and set up my exotic tropical plants indoors for the winter. Waiting to see their growth and development during this time. I had some questions - the customer service was good. HOWEVER, I am disappointed in the construction of the control panel. They both have exposed wires. The ON/OFF buttons don't work properly on both - they have to be pressed several times to work.
The lights arrived very promptly and everything that was supposed to be in the box was there. Easy set up and even within days my plants seemed stronger. The only really annoying this is the blue light that flashes when the lights are timed off. I actually have to turn them off at the power point every night because the blue flashing keeps me awake.
Thanks for the kind review - glad you love your light! Apologies for the blue light on the controller, we have heard this feedback before and will try to remove the feature from future models!
So, I love these lights. I didnt know how much I loved them til I bought a cheaper version on ebay... You cant go wrong with these. I use them on my indoor house plants and they are growing at 3 times their normal rate, in winter! Very happy customer!
These grow lights are great. I’ve used them for indoor plants and raising seedlings and it’s been an unexpected bonus to be able to move them around. They are flexible and sturdy, and the multiple intensity settings give you a fair amount of control. Will definitely be buying more!
Handy little clip on lights. Using them to grow some moss on my bookshelf. Only annoying thing is the controller, seems a bit cheap and had trouble getting it to turn on at first. Also blinks a blue LED when using the timer which is a bit obnoxious at night, a bit of electrical tape should fix it
I got the 3 headed version and it's a great grow light with good intensity (doesn't seem too bright to burn them but strong enough for the growth). The colour seems quite good too and gives off a little more 'yellow' glow than most white ones. The lights are very flexible and stay in their position a lot better than some other ones I have (like the 2 headed one in the bottom of my pic).
The only downsides I have is that It's advertised to have a 3hr, 9hr or 12hr timer but mine only has 3hr, 6hr or 12hr. The 9hr would be perfect for me as 6hrs isn't enough and 12hrs is too long but unfortunately mine doesn't have that setting :( It also seems to have a single faulty LED on one of the heads (not that it really affects the lighting) that I hope doesn't spread (see pic).
