Daily Light Integral (DLI) Calculator

Proper light management is crucial for every grower to ensure the amount of light your crop is receiving in a period.

Daily Light Integrals (DLI) mol.m-2. s-1 moles per sq meter. per second.

This describes the amount of photosynthetically active photons that reach the leaf area in a 24-hour period, 86,400,000 seconds.

DLI expresses the sum of light measurements in a 24-hour period. Plants use phytochrome pigments to harvest light to fuel photosynthesis. Phytochrome is a blue-green plant pigment which regulates plant development, including seed germination, stem growth, leaf expansion, pigment synthesis, and flowering. Phytochrome has been found in most of the organs of seed plants and free-sporing plants. Chlorophyll is the most common and abundant plant pigment, blue and red mostly. Red 660 influences leaf growth and stem elongation, so red-light plays a key role in flowering cannabis by activating phytochrome pigments.

Cannabis, cucumbers, peppers, and tomatoes love the 660 photons, it trusts it and eats more and in return the plants deteriorate sooner allowing your crop to finish days sooner than with old HPS/ MH lights.

The blue photon is needed, in tiny amounts, to prevent irregular stem elongation; blue light to regulate opening of the stomata pores on the underside of the cannabis leaf to take in Co2.

The measure of the light is the next step to setting up your LED light, now that you know more about PPFD and DLI, and that it is monumental to a plants health and growth.

Vapor - Pressure - Deficit (VPD) Calculator

Room temperature and leaf temperature, if you are a new grower or old school grower you are going to need to heat your room, yes, heat your room, so the next step in growing with LEDs is learning VPD.

The difference of the amount of moisture in the air and the amount of moisture the air can hold, before it becomes saturated.[3]

Correct VPD Helps:
• Reduces node spacing
• Stimulates root and shoot growth
• Increases stem thickness
• Increases flower size
• Increases plant vigor
• Increases nutrient and water uptake
• Reduces susceptibility to disease and pest outbreaks
• Increases growth in general

This is a valuable way to measure your climate in your grow room and is key to understanding how to grow with LEDs.

In Cannabis cultivation, VPD refers to the difference between vapor pressure within the plant and the vapor pressure of the air surrounding the plant.
