Hey everyone, I’ve been reading a lot about far red light, the far red to red ratio, SAS (shade avoidance syndrome), and how accelerating the rate that the phytochrome state is changed can effect flowering.
So I got HLG far red bulbs for my grows. All the fixtures I’ve gotten from HLG all came with paperwork. The cut sheets showed the specs, suggested mounting heights, and any other information you could want. These far red bulbs came in plain packaging, with nothing, no cut sheet, not a single marking on the boxes saying what it is, or even a barcode, lol.
I read on their website to have it come on for 3 to 10 minutes immediately following lights off, so I’m clear on that. I also read not to use them at all during lights on because it could cause severe stretching, but then of course I read some opposing views on that as well, lol.
Anyone know if there’s any benefit to using them during veg, or is it only benificial during flowering? I’d assume it would help them to get better rest in all stages of growth, but I haven’t been able to find any specific info about using them in veg.
Anyone currently using them have anything to add? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
