Avoid disrupting your plants’ sleep cycle with our Sensor Windows®. All our viewing windows now come with clever technology that won’t wake your plants whilst you keep an eye on them. This means your plants’ energy stores are being retained and not drained, maximising growth.
Green-Qube’s Sensor Windows®:
> Filter out white light
> Allow plants to continue their sleep cycle with NO disruption
> Retains the stability of internal growing environment
> Optimises plants’ sleep cycle so they can effectively and efficiently replenish their energy stores
> Plants fully retain their energy boosting growth
All of Green-Qube, Roof-Qube and LED-Qubes grow tents now come with Sensor Windows® as standard. Our smaller tents just have one, whilst out bigger tents (Green-Qube 200, Green-Qube 240 and Green-Qube 300) come with two.
Plants have a circadian rhythm which is basically a cycle that tells plants when to sleep, rise and eat, thus regulating many physiological processes. A collaboration of researchers from Austria, Finland and Hungary used laser scanners on plants to measure their ‘sleep movement’. Whilst they don’t sleep like humans, they shut down certain processes, such as photosynthesis. When the light disappears, the plant’s focus shifts to delivering glucose throughout the plant. Light and dark triggers tell plants when to produce the hormone auxin, which controls their growth and development.
When plants see light it disturbs this cycle and has a detrimental effect on their growth and development, so everything you open the window or peek inside to take a look at your plants, your plants are ‘woken’ up from their relaxed and recharged state.
That is where Green-Qube’s Sensor Windows® come in. They harness clever technology where by the formulated green tint filters out white light so plants can continue in their current state without interruption, whilst you view your plants. Your plants continue with their vital ‘sleep’ cycle whilst you watch. By retaining their sleep segment, it allows them to reserve and retain their energy store, maximising growth.
We all are a little guilty of being protective-parents, checking our plants a bit too often! Well who can blame you, when you put all that effort in you want to make sure your plants are healthy, well and growing… BUT all those sneaky peaks add up and can really have a detrimental effect on your plants’ energy stores and therefore their growth.
Sensor Windows are AMAZING as you can look as much as you want without doing any damage. Honestly this is a god send if you are just starting out and need to keep an eye!
