is blue light the best.
    #3488923 - 12/13/04 01:30 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

i have read that for fruiting blue light is the best. is this true. on site said that if the top of your tub is blue plastic you can put a fluorescent light on top of it and it create blue light. if this is true you would not have to cut an opening in the top of the rubbermaid if you simply chose blue as your color. has anyone tried this.

YEs blue light has the best spectrum for a good pinset!

Is shifting the light along the spectrum as easy as 'what's blue to our eyes is blue to mushies eyes'? As in, covered in colored seran wrap would work? or no

Would it make any different if you took white light and made it blue?

Are xmas lights enough? They'd be easy to put on a timer.

yes, you are actualy cutting out a great deal of light as well as blocking part
of the spectrum you want.
