You will need 3000 lumens per square foot of plant canopy to bring a chile to fruit.
Chinese leds are about 100 lumens/watt
The LED grow bulbs in the enclosed link are 9W (they are mfg in China). So, based on what you are saying, I would need about 3 of these bulbs shining on my desk chile plant in order to bring the plant to fruit?
Question: The specs on the Feit Electric A19 Full Spectrum LED Plant Grow Light Bulb that I could pick up from the local big box store state the following:
Energy used: 9-Watt (equivalent to a 60-Watt standard incandescent light bulb).
From your comment it seems a single indoor ornamental desk plant would need a 30W lamp in order to survive and grow.
For wattage requirements for the single indoor plant, and trying to determine if the Feit Electric LED grow bulb mentioned above would be sufficient for the plant, should I go by the 9W energy used wattage level, or the 60 Watt standard incandescent bulb equivalence level?
Thank you for the replies. Looks like Ive got a long way to go with my understanding of LED grow lights.
I guess I just need the LED grow light selection process to be simpler, like when I first started growing seedlings under flourencent lights. I just went into Home Depot, bought some shop lights, and installed the recommended bulbs. Easy.
Perhaps for my one indoor ornamental Chile, I should just go to Home Depot and buy this LED grow bulb:
