Optimizing Sunlight For Cannabis Vegetables Ornamentals Leafy Greens

A Sun Powered Layer of Light

UbiGro® is a luminescent film that optimizes sunlight within your greenhouse. This layer of light uses clean nanotechnology known as quantum dots to improve the quality of light in the greenhouse. UbiGro’s layer of light leverages unused parts of the sun’s spectrum, UV and blue photons, and converts them into orange, red, and far-red, giving your plants more of what they need to thrive.

From the moment the sun rises above the horizon, UbiGro is activated, illuminating your greenhouse with optimal sunlight and diffusion. Growers who use UbiGro in their greenhouse experience healthier plants and gain up to a 20% boost in crop yields.
