December 4, 2023


The ideal wattage for grow lights depends on several factors, including the type of plant, the size of the growing area, and the intensity of light needed. However, as a general rule of thumb, you should aim to use 20 to 40 watts of LED plant lights per square foot of growing space.There is a wide range of plant grow lights available in wattages between 20 and 2,000 watts. The amount of wattage you need will depend on the size of your grow space, the type of plants you are growing, and the stage of growth of your plants.

Wattage for Different Types of Plant Grow Lights

Leafy greens and herbs: 20-30 watts per square foot

Flowering plants: 30-40 watts per square foot

Fruits and vegetables: 40-50 watts per square foot

You can also use a PAR (Photosynthetically Active Radiation) meter to measure the light intensity in your growing space. The ideal PAR level for most plants is 300 to 600 µmol/m²s.

Choosing the Right Wattage Grow Light

Consider the stage of plant growth. Seedlings and young plants require less light than mature plants.

Use a dimmer to adjust light intensity as needed.

Place grow lights closer to plants for higher light intensity or away from plants for lower light intensity.

Experiment with different power settings to find the one that works best for your plants.
