O.k. first question is there any validation of using green light during flowering.
Second question i run 2 600w hps i always thought that you would keep everything the same like i use 2050 k but i saw a nice grow room with lights having different k like 2500 and 3000k in the tents with green leds at 4ft pointing horizontally.
I have never seen this before so that is why the question.
I argue with my father often about this point… now let me say i have NO SCIENTIFIC proof of any of this. But plants are green because they reflect from the green spectrum. Thus its kind of a wasted spectrum in comparison to blue n red.
Also he seems to believe since they dont use the green spectrum then it would make a great ‘night light’. Im of the thought: any light is still light. So a green light would keep them awake during necessary dark period. And be too weak to be of anyvalue if used during the day.
@dbrn32 @Aolelon am i thinking right here?
Green wavelengths not a big contributor to photosynthesis, but plants do use them. Disregard McCree here and lookup newer studies from NASA and Oxford. I would highly suggest you get a cold beer or whatever your poison is and a tightly rolled spliff before you begin and take notes lol.
As far as the light thing goes, I’d tread carefully. Something like a low intensity green headlamp for a short period of time on irregular basis probably fine. But I wouldn’t be plopping a green lightbulbs in your grow thinking you can go in and out whenever you want frequently.
Thanks. Long story short. Blues n reds
Thats what i was thinking but he keep telling me that the green lights with the others make it have more oil and resinous trichomes and i know everyone grows different but he kinda of got frustrated when i asked the reason for 5 cob green lights. That’s why I posted this to see if there’s something im missing or a new trick to learn thanks for responding @dbrn32
It’s way more complicated than that. If we were only worried about chlorophyll would be more of a true statement. But the other wavelengths contribute to other processes of the plant.
Thus the reason white LED lights are taking over right now, because they include this green spectrum (along with efficacy). Whereas blurple LEDs only pick the spectrum they want, usually in the 400 and 600nm range.
There’s no leds lights in this setup except for the green cobs @Aolelon
Sorry, that was in response to purpngold.
Your HID lighting already incorporates this spectrum for the most part.
This guys like weird Jimmy he grows weird and does all kinds of shit i have never seen before and acts like it’s the secret ingredient to the bbq sauce when I asked about those that why im bothering everyone on here lol
Thanks for the explanations fellas. Nice tidbits. N now i know a bit more
One of my friend is like that, I stopped talking growing with him because I would kinda get upset at him because he clearly wouldnt listen to simple things like PH is KEY.I only send him pictures of beautiful buds once in a while hoping sometimes he is gonna come back to me and ask “so how do you do that?”. I gave him clones months ago and well they didnt turn nowhere near what I have done of their mother He introduced me to growing and it feels like the “master” wont take advice from the beginner so yeah haha.
People stuck in their old ways thinking it’s best. Everyone can always learn something I dont care who it is.
Yeah, luckily I found you guys cause I only know him that grows!!
See. This makes pops right. Can anyone second this line of thought? Not doubting u fuzzman. Just… doesnt seem safe
So u used them like in the room lighting. Not the ‘sun for plants’ lighting?
Can dig it…
I whas taking to a guy, and he say The Green Light in combo whit adderas Light in par and micromol and thinks i dident anderstand.
He say The Green Light whos The key to beter yeld all over.
Its whos The ower of hellospectra lamps
