Romantics throughout the ages agree – red roses are the go-to flower to express love. Throughout history the rose has appeared in poetry, literature, and contemporary films, with the red rose being the quintessential symbol to express one’s deepest affection. But while it may be the flower of love, roses are one of the most light-intensive flowers in the world, often requiring 4000-5000 light hours in a year. For growers, this means that in order to keep up with romantic demand, they must focus on the size of their yield and the quality of their blooms. Luckily many have found a solution in Philips GreenPower LED toplighting. This LED system brings more light for the same amount of energy, optimized light spectrum and a significant reduction in radiated heat.
