Salvia Grow Lights
    #3176665 - 09/24/04 10:08 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

With fall coming I need to move my plants inside soon... I'm thinking about picking up two 48' fluorescent fixtures (each holds 2 tubes). I know fluorescents emit blue light - which is better for leaf growth, which is what you want with Salvia. However, I'm wondering if this would be enough wattage to keep my 3 plants happy. Any suggestions appreciated...thanks...

I've heard that just spraying the leaves a few times a day will be enough. No?

Don't waste your money on the specialty grow light bulbs. Go to home depot and get the daylight flouros. They are the same thing and only cost like $6 each.

What you need to do is check out the degrees Kelvin that the light emits. The daylights are around 6500K which is close to summer grow conditions.

Hope this helps.

A hps would be good for indoor growth.

Can you really just spray the leaves twice a day? Or does the plant need more humidity. My ambient humidity is around 25-30%.

Peace

you don't need an HPS for indoor growth.
