Real Red HPS

High Pressure Sodium Lamps

Growlite REAL RED HPS horticulture lamps produce a spectrum with a deep red focus which enhances plant quality during the flowering stage. High Pressure Sodium lighting is still one of the most efficient and reliable lighting technologies for growing plants indoors.

HPS lamps have been the standard for decades due to their ability to shower the plant canopy with an abundance of light energy/photons. A critical demand for plants that requires high levels of light intensity.

REAL RED Double-Ended

REAL RED DE HPS lamps provide growers with the powerful deep-red spectrum in a double-ended configuration. This deep-red energy greatly boosts plant quality when compared to competitive lamps. The REAL RED DE can be used in any DE system yet performance is maximized when operated in the Growlite ARCHON DE system.

DE HPS is the lamp of choice for large commercial growers because of their higher light output and extended lifetime versus single-ended HPS lamps.

REAL RED Single-Ended

REAL RED SE HPS lamps provide growers the powerful deep-red spectral energy to be operated in standard screw-in, mogul base fixtures.

Single-ended HPS lamps run cooler than DE lamps making them a great choice for commercial facilities and home growers looking to reduce heat levels.

REAL RED SE lamp performance is maximized when operated in the OG and CONVEX fixtures.

REAL RED Double Arc

The REAL RED Double Arc HPS is 3.5" shorter than traditional 1000W HPS lamps allowing it to fit in much smaller fixtures such as our CONVEX.

The Double Arc consists of two 500W HPS arc tubes to provide 1000W of light.

This lamp was developed for greenhouse operations wanting high-wattage performance in small, compact fixtures that won't block sunlight. This is a great lamp for light maintenance applications needed to extend the photoperiod for plants.
