Lighting is essential to provide light energy to the plants for use in photosynthesis. This is the main process the plants use to capture light energy which is converted to chemical energy. This energy is then used in the dark cycle (night time) to produce carbohydrates, which the plant then uses for growth, flowering and fruit production. Optimum growth and flowering cycles are enhanced with the use of the range of different lamps. In hydroponics, the lighting is composed of 4 basic products: the timer, the ballast, the shade and the lamp. The timer is used to control the day and night cycle. The ballast is used to ignite and maintain the current in the lamp. The lamp is used to provide light energy to the plant and the reflector is used to spread the light energy over a larger surface area.
