Learn What You Can Grow
With the Power of the Highland
Oh, the Plants You’ll Grow!
Plants have been a staple of households for hundreds of years as a source of beauty and nutrients, but the extent of what you can grow has remained limited by both environmental and architectural constraints. Not anymore! Whether you’re installing a grow wall or just looking to incorporate beautiful, green accents throughout your space – the Highland is the light of choice by both horticultural and design professionals.
With the power of the Highland you’ll provide any plants, from fresh vanilla beans to a dwarf Japanese maple, with the photosynthetic light they require while adding a timeless touch of life and beauty anywhere in your home. So choose your favorite plant and get growing! The Highland will do the work; your home will get all the credit.
Determining Distance & Coverage
More than anything, plants need light! Finding the perfect distance between the Highland and your plant shouldn’t be a challenge and we are here to help! Highlands are made with either a narrow or wide reflector. Each reflector determines how the light travels and the amount of coverage the Highland provides your plants. A narrow reflector produces a narrow and more focused that, perfect for plants further away. A wide reflector provides a beam angle that is wider, with slightly less focused light. We know the guides below are a little confusing, so let us know if you have questions!
Need more light?
Not a problem! Double up and point two Highlands in the same place and the amount of light will double. For example, using two Highlands pointed at the same spot would increase the light from low to moderate, or moderate to high light.
Narrow Beam Coverage
The Highland’s narrow beam reflector provides a narrow beam of light and is recommended for further away areas or plants requiring more light.

Wide Beam Coverage
The Highland’s wide beam reflector provides a wider beam of light and is recommended for larger spaces or plants requiring less light.
