The Greenception GC 9 was designed as the perfect medium-budget LED lamp for ambitious hobby gardeners and has a switchable, particularly broadband light spectrum (including near-UV and far-red) that is optimized for plant lighting. Due to the design, square base areas up to 100 x 100 cm are optimally illuminated. The Greenception GC 9 was developed as a 1: 1 replacement for 400 watt sodium lamps.
Switchable spectrum: The special thing about Greenception LED lamps is that the light spectrum is not fixed, but can be adjusted by the user by simply pressing the 3 toggle switches to the respective crop phase of the plants. In this way, both the quality of light (light spectrum) and the quantity of light (amount of light) can be adapted to the needs of the plants. This is particularly important because plants often need a different light mix in the growth phase than in the flowering phase. For example, a blue-heavy spectrum in the vegetative phase leads to a more compact growth form, the reddish spectrum in the flowering phase promoting the formation of the flowers. Since the spectrum of Greenception LED lamps is variable, your plants are optimally illuminated in every cultivation phase.




Module details: The module groups can be switched individually:
  • Module I: Seedling / cuttings (growth) 1 x 32 W
  • Module II: full spectrum / vegetative 4 x 32 W
  • Module III: flowering 4 x 32 W.
Module I is optimized for seedlings / cuttings. A relatively high proportion of blue and white ensure a compact growth habit. The integrated near-UV light ensures faster root growth of the seedlings or cuttings. Module II is suitable for both vegetation and flowering. Full spectrum for an optimal supply of light to the plant. Module III is optimized for flowering. Very high red content and additional far-red ensure faster and more pronounced flower formation.
Suspension and operation:  Greenception recommends the GC 9 for a floor space of max. 100 x 100 cm. An area of ​​80 x 80 cm is optimal.  
The height of the lamp depends on the culture and phase. At full intensity, Greenception recommends a general minimum distance of around 40 cm between the lamp and the plant tip in order to achieve the most homogeneous illumination possible and to avoid light burns on the plant.
Use of the switching stages: The toggle switches serve to determine both the light color and the light intensity. The switching of the clusters is planned in such a way that the toggle switches for the respective culture phase (1st seedling / cutting 2nd vegetative / growth 3rd flowering) are switched on without switching off the already activated switch. Accordingly, the first switching stage (seedling / cutting) can remain activated from the start of cultivation until the end of the flowering phase. This is recommended by Greenception due to the included near-UV light, which brings many advantages both in the cultivation and in the flowering phase. In any case, it is recommended to activate the flower spectrum at the beginning of the first signs of flowering and to have all switching stages in operation during the flowering phase.

Note: The near-UV and far-red LED chips emit light in wavelengths that are very difficult or even impossible to see for the human eye. It can give the impression that the LED chips are not working. You can photograph or film these LED chips with a cell phone camera, for example, to check whether they light up. For even more control on areas up to 75 x 75 cm, we recommend the GC WiFi , for areas from 100 x 100 cm the GC Bar 8 . These LED plant lamps can be controlled automatically over the course of the day via an external controller ( GC signal ) on 5 or 3 channels with light recipes. The spectrum and its intensity can be controlled automatically over 24 hours and adapted to the plants in even more detail.
