OK, due to tight finances, I built my own 200 true watt LED Full Spectrum Grow Panel using 2500K to 3500K for flower 3 to one with 5,000K to 6,500K for veg. The color of the flower LED’s is a warm yellowish color, and the veg lights are kind of a whitish very light blue color. (Side note: my neighbor got on a tall ladder to spy on what I was doing and saw my outside grow shed behind a tall wooden fence. He was thrilled, thank God!!! So much so, he invested in a Mars Reflector 96 Series grow light to supplement my own light. So, don’t depend on tall fences for security!!!).
However, the Mars is really, really blue, red, yellow, and white; so much purplish light you could hardly see after looking at it! Mine is twice the true wattage, but looks more yellowish/white. Now, I have two of my plants under the Mars, and two under mine. They are both growing the same, even though the Mars is perceived brighter and purplish and has less true wattage than mine.
So, why the perceived color difference?
Why is mine with twice the watts growing the same? ( I also built 150W CFL bulb and a 150W LED bulb full spectrum grow lights with the same colors as the LED panel lights for isolation and/or clones in 50 gallon trash cans.)
Will the perceived color difference with my home made LED panel, and isolation grow lights cause me trouble later?
I am ten days into flowering and just wonder if they will continue to grow/flower? Since this is my first indoor grow, I am a little nervous now that I have seen a store bought LED Full Spectrum Grow Light compared with mine.
