In reply, I do not have a light meter to ascertain the intensity of the light (not sure what PAR means). The 3 plants I put in my small diningroom where I had replaced the standard bulbs in a 3-bulb fixture with the LED spotlights, appear to be doing well (did you get the phone camera photos I had e-mailed to you?). I angled the bulbs together a bit, so they converge on an approx. 3 x 3 foot area at plant level. There is a 12 inch pot of Alocasia 'Lime Zinger' that refused to go dormant after being frost-pruned and brought into the basement, Aristolochia fimbriata that unexpectedly broke dormancy with a cutting of a cool Acanthaceae family vine (I'll find name later), and Miltassia Royal Robe 'Jerry's Pick' that really filled up its 8 inch pot, bloomed nicely, but now shows symptoms of virus in new growths so is being isolated and is expendable for this "experiment".
Will let you know more later.
Bonaventure, thanks for posting this. I'm very interested in LED lighting,
and though I try to keep up on what's out there I hadn't seen this one.
Though these sound expensive, for LED lighting on standard bases that can
run directly on wall power it's really quite reasonable.
Have you actually measured the PAR output from these lights yet?
