'A grow light to enjoy a lifetime'

“We saw that many light suppliers are focusing on crop-specific technology. We wanted to take a different approach and have developed an overall high-performing light recipe that can be used to grow any crop at any stage. This makes our product accessible for any grower," Dries Bovijn, co-founder of Mother explains.

"Farmers are used to choosing a light spectrum composed of mainly red and blue light, as they believe that it is the most efficient to grow their crops. We have seen a lot of farmers coming back from this, not only is it much easier to work with full-spectrum light as you can spot fungus or diseases in an early stage, it allows your plants to develop deep tastes and colors, and is in most cases just as effective in plant growth compared to purple light."

Durable solutions
“Farmers especially opt for Plant Spectrum when they learn about our durable approach.” The light module is made out of anodized aluminum, preventing the LED’s from overheating and preserving the spectrum. This in comparison with plastic housings, according to Dries, where the heat remains inside. You can already measure a difference in the spectrum after a few months of use. Imagine the difference it makes after a few years.

“Sustainability is one of the core values in our designs. This reflects in our infinity promise, if you buy one of our products, it is a purchase for life.” When the LEDs start to wear after 8 years of intensive use, you can easily replace the LED board yourself. This way you can keep renewing your original installation. A unique approach in the market. As in the past farmers needed to replace their complete light setup, creating a lot of waste and a lot of unnecessary costs. 

IP65 Farmers Kit
“In the beginning, we mainly focused on providing end-consumers with our products, enabling them to start growing their own microgreens and vegetables at home with an easy plug and play system. We soon found out that farms were also interested in our grow lights and came to understand that there is a need for a uniform approach. While indoor farms usually start from scratch and built their own systems, we believe in a one size fits all formula,” Dries affirms. 

In addition to our current offer, we launched the IP65 KIT. A starter kit of 5 waterproof light modules that includes several mounting systems and enables you to easily integrate them into your indoor farms. Mother also launched its own seeding brand last year, providing high-quality seeds at the lowest price in Europe. In line with their mission, they want to encourage everyone to start growing their own food.
