Deep Dive into Light. Octopot Education:
Now that we have identified what light is here's yet another one of our chapters (of many) on the very broad topic of light. Specifically light spectrum. With so many options for artificial lighting out there it's important to grasp the various characteristics of the light spectrum. Here we will take look at what each nanometer range (light "color") can do. Learn how all UV light is not created equal and why blue light is important to our plants. Isn't green light worthless to our plants? We bust some myths and discover why those blurple LED lights may not be the best for your grow. We find out which red light spectrums enhance our plant growth, and why those HPS lights may be wasting energy outside the photosynthetic range for your plants. There's a lot of information to absorb so feel free to pause and play the video at your own pace.
