U.V. Lights...BAD???
    #3249871 - 10/13/04 12:36 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I just wanted to ask if U.V. Lights are bad for growing with. I have an old Reptile light I want to use. Its not the floodlamp kind its a soft flourescent. How far should I mount it above my PMP? Should I direct the light away from it or just set it right on top?? :confused:

Stick to regular coolwhite or warmwhite fluorescents. Or even one of those compact fluorescents that fit in a regular bulb holder.

Plus reptile lamps are usually hot lamps, you want cool lights for your mushies..them swirly ones are the best :smile:

Oh and I don't think warm lights are the best since they are higher in the red end of the spectrum aren't they? You want higher intensity in the blue region..
