Re: uvb and led for hash tips

Hi there

I always use Reptiglow cfs on every grow (1 x 18watt UV bulb per 2 plants). I know that when used in combination with 660nm LEDs and cfs resin production IS better with the UV.

Hi bofin did you do a side by side comparison uvbulb vs non and was this a visual judgement ?

Re: uvb and led for hash tips

Hello HH

It was not very scientific, but since I have always used UV CFs as well as LEDs and CFs.

I had 2 identical cabinets, with identical lighting systems (except the UV), the cab with the UV always seemed to have better tric development. When a plants went really frosty, it was always in the UV cab. I ran like this for 3 complete grows.

I will find some old bud pictures from the LED box with the UV and post them in a mo.

Re: uvb and led for hash tips

Wow, love your shots, BOfin...I was looking at yout LED thread, how far away do you keep the UV bulbs, same distance as your CFL's? I think I see them in the pix co-mingled with the CFL's.

Thanks, CC
