RIPARIUM 6000K

Your riparium will come to life with this LED!

Until now riparium fixtures have fallen short. For example, if you’ve tried using multi-color LED fixtures in your riparium or orchid house, you may have discovered the “rainbow effect.” This occurs when light from the different color LEDs is blocked by leaves above the water: It can produce an annoying pattern behind the plants that looks like a prism of colors. And, if you’ve used fluorescent fixtures, you know how often the expensive bulbs need to be replaced to maintain proper light levels. We’ve eliminated these problems by using a carefully calibrated combination of powerful, 50,000 hour, industrial-grade white LEDs that have the power (PAR) to produce excellent growth rates in light loving plants. With these PAR levels, you’ll be able to grow desert plants and orchids -- or you can use a dimmer (or shading) to simulate rain forest and grow bromeliads or mosses. When used in a riparium, this fixture has the power to provide high PAR readings below the water level, so both your terrestrial and aquatic plants get the light they need for healthy, fast, and robust growth.

Finally, this light will bring your riparium to life -- customers love it and say it casts a “naturally” colored light and “brings out the natural color” of their plants -- both above and below water.

Recommended for: Riparium, terrarium, palludarium and Orchid Houses.
