If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is a video worth?

At Black Dog LED, we think they are worth a lot. We also think there is nothing more mesmerizing than watching a plant grow using stop-motion photography.

Black Dog LED PhytoMAX 800 vs. Kind K5-XL1000 LED Grow Lights - Part 2

Part 2 of a side-by-side Cannabis grow comparing the Black Dog LED PhytoMAX 800 LED grow light against the Kind K5-XL1000, each in a 5X5 tent with 5 Blue Dream clones.

In this second video of the series we cover more of the test parameters, as requested by our viewers, and look at how the plants are developing through week 2 of flower. These lights were selected as each claims to be a replacement for a traditional 1000 watt HPS and to cover a 5X5 area for flowering.

Best Commercial LED Grow Lights -- 10,000Watt -- Time-Lapse

This time-lapse documents a case study done by a commercial dispensary in the Denver metropolitan area comparing the PhytoMAX 800, the most powerful LED grow light at the time, to SE (single ended) and DE (double ended) HPS grow lights. The PhytoMAX 800 was later supplanted by the PhytoMAX 1000 as the most powerful LED grow light. In the case study the PhytoMAX LED grow lights yielded 15.36 pounds using 9600 watts compared to 13.4 pounds with 10,550 watts of Gavita DE and 12.24 pounds for 12,300 watts of ducted SE HPS. This video along with the case study proves that with the proper LED grow lights it is possible to yield more overall Cannabis and increase profits while still having a smaller energy footprint.

200 Watt 7 Ounce LED Cannabis Grow

PhytoMAX 200 in 2.9 square feet (25" X 17") yields 7 ounces of top shelf Blue Dream. The 12 plants were cloned and immediately flipped once rooted for a true Sea of Green (SOG). The original goal with this tiny cabinet grow space was a quarter pound (112 grams) so the final 196 grams blew us away. Not only was the footprint very limited but the height for growing was also limited to 24 inches. This cabinet shows off some of the real-world benefits of Black Dog LED grow lights and proves that they can flower top shelf cannabis in spaces what were practically impossible to grow in, before LED. The proprietary Phyto-Genesis spectrum including UV from the Black Dog LED PhytoMAX 200 truly shined in this test grow.

The Ultimate LED Grow Light Indoor Garden

At Black Dog LED we are passionate about gardening, especially indoor gardening with LED grow lights. We wanted to show visitors to our headquarters what our LED grow lights could do by creating the ultimate indoor garden. The garden in the Black Dog LED showroom is the best example of a high quality and well-designed indoor garden you will find in any grow light company office and possibly one of the best in the country. Our garden is an excellent way to see the our grow lights in action and see plants that have been grown exclusively under our plant lights from months and in some cases years. The most powerful LED grow lights available and the efficiency of our Phyto-Genesis spectrum allows us to grow tropical fruiting plants that are unable to fruit under any other lighting technology.
