NorbBOTANIC – Family of Unique Grow Lights

NorbBOTANIC is a Nutri-Orb, a unique white light with a specialized spectrum to support plant health and growth.

Norb’s founder, Dave, is a biologist and horticulturist that wanted to discover the perfect grow light spectrum that outperformed all others. He evaluated 20+ different grow light spectra, in order to determine which spectrum provided the best growth for plants, such as house plants, herbs and vegetables. Dave says, “During the 18 month grow trial, we assessed the quality of the stems/leaves, health and trueness to color, and even flavor – compared to plants growing outdoors in direct sun. NorbBOTANIC offers the leading grow light spectrum for happy and healthy plants.”

Usage

Your NorbBOTANIC grow light should only be used indoors (home or greenhouse), and how you use it is determined by what you are growing.

Click the appropriate tab below to view growing directions for your bulb.

Adjust your NorbBOTANIC A19 bulb above your plants according to the heights below. As the plants grow, simply elevate the light to maintain the distance.

Growing Herbs and Vegetables

Adjust the light to be approximately 10 to 12 inches from the top of the plants.

Run Time:12 to 14 hours. If germinating seed, you may wish to start 16-24 inches from the top of the plants to reduce intensity. Once the shoots begin to emerge, you can lower it. A simple timer can be used to turn it on and off, typically set to run approx. 12-14 hours per day, on at 7AM and off at 7 or 9PM.

Growing Succulent Plants

Adjust the light to be approximately 12 to 14 inches from the top of the plants.

Description

Indoor Plant Lighting Made Easy

Plants are a lot like people and pets; they need proper nutrition to thrive. NorbBOTANIC and NorbTROPIC are designed to provide the light nutrition that plants need.

A Spectrum Designed for Growth

Typical LED grow lights use a combination of red and blue diodes that emit a violet-pink color that is unsuitable for most places that people work, learn, heal, shop and live.

With NorbBOTANIC, not only will your plants thrive; they will look right under white light.

FAQs

We developed two options for NorbBOTANIC PAR38 in response to a need for even lighting across a vertical garden surface (through our sister company, LiveWall).

A wide beam angle spreads the light out horizontally but not as far vertically from the lamp. A narrow beam angle allows the light to travel further.   Thus, we use the 30 degree beam angle bulbs  to light the upper rows of a living wall and the 15 degree beam angle bulbs are used to light the lower rows of plants.

The same priniciples apply to how far your plants are distanced from your lamp.  Use the wider beam angle (30 degrees) to illuminate plants that are 3′ – 5′ from the lamp.  Use the narrower beam angle (15 degrees) in fixtures mounted 5′ – 10′ from the plant canopy.

Use the 30 degree beam angle to illuminate plants that are 3 to 5 feet from the lamp. Use the 15 degree beam angle to light plants that are 5 to 10 feet from the lamp.

Norb bulbs are only for use on 120 Volt, 60 Hz circuits.

Plants need a dark period to rest and prevent metabolic fatigue. Therefore, grow lights should only be run 12-15 hours maximum per day—typically from 7 AM to 8 or 9 PM (to mimic light conditions in tropical regions). The rest of the time, they should be in darkness, or near darkness.

Do not light your plants with NorbBOTANIC for more than 15 hours per day.

Yes, this bulb will fit into E26/E27 sockets—typically referred to as a “medium” or “standard” base. This is the most common size in which you’ll find lamps and fixtures.

A PAR38 bulb is 4.75″ wide, so ensure that hooded fixtures—as are typical in track lighting cans—have sufficiently large openings to fit the bulb. It’s best to check the fixture specifications to see if it is recommended for a PAR38 bulb.
