WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH A PROGRAMMABLE SPECTRUM?

Control Development

Plants use spectrum to learn about their environment and make decisions about growth. Fine tune both physical and chemical development and grow with precision.

Never Out of Date

A programmable spectrum is a flexible investment that keeps up with new reseach. This future proof adaptable technology keeps the competitive edge even as the market changes.

Optimize Process

The Avici grows seed to harvest under one light, streamlining work flow and minimizing labor. With an easy to use controller, changing seasons takes only the touch of a button.

COLOR

IN CROPS

Why chase color?

Darker colors increase bag appeal in crops such as lettuce and cannabis. A darker color influences perception of freshness and quality and purchasing behavior.

How does it work?

Anthocyanin pigments (flavonoids) are responsible for the red, purple and blue colors of many fruits, vegetables and flowers and are influenced by spectrum and light intensity. 

How do I use it?

A spectrum with a high blue content prompts plants to darken with richer reds and purples tones. Cultivators can add blue to an indoor spectrum to drive color development, or to suppliment seasonal deficiencies during winter and early spring. 

With a programmable spectrum, you can customize your crop color, bringing out rich purples and reds and increasing value.

IN CANNABIS AND PRODUCE

If you’re growing something for its chemical content, be sure to grow a potent plant.

How does it work?

A plant’s chemical profile is decided by the interactions of its genetic potential and the environment.

How do I use it?

A fuller spectrum results in better development of cannabinoids, flavinoids, and other chemicals. We’ve attached some studies below.

BUILDING THE PERFECT

PLANT ARCHITECTURE

FOR EVERY APPLICATION

How does it work?

Plants use different wavelengths of light to determine things about their environment. Ratios of color tell the plant where it is in the canopy, which it uses to decide whether to stretch out or remain compact. This process is called Photomorphogenesis.

How do I use it?

The basics are easy. Higher red content makes plants stretch, higher blue content keeps them compact. You can design your spectrum to instruct the plant to grow the way you need it, be that shorter for racking applications, or longer and leafier for greens. We’ve linked some resources below so you can start learning.

The Effect of Red to Blue Ratio

Red light creates longer, ‘leggier’ plants. Red is important to drive growth, but without other colors causes plants to stretch.
Blue light creates short, dense plants. It’s good for shortening internodal spacing and darkening color.

KEEP A

STEADY SPECTRUM

DURING SEASONAL CHANGES

SUPPLEMENT SPECTRUM

Protect against seasonal changes to control plant color, chemical expression, flavinoid development, and keep a consistent product.

SUPPLEMENT INTENSITY

Keep a consistent PPFD regardless of seasonal or weather changes to produce reliable yeild and quality all year.
