UV LIGHT IN THE GROWROOM

7 posts in this topic

Question: Is it a good idea to put some UV light (for example - a 36 watt) in the growroom to the plants !? i thought at defending the plants from pests using the UV light! 

Please tell me what do you think! I would appreciate it very to hear your opionion!

Hello,

 

Actually, the UV lamps are used to increase the production of trichomes :). But .... they are also very good to prevent fungus.

 

What model you use?

 

Cheers

I had used two 18Watt and two 36Watt fluorescent UV "black lamps" in my flower tent in addition to my normal bud-lamp set-up: (two 270Watt multi-wavelength LED lamps and two 36Watt fluorescent grow lamps).  I didn't have any mold issues, but I also didn't notice any other advantage.  Maybe "black lamp" produces the wrong wavelength for MJ, so recently I was able to purchase a 36Watt UV-B 2.0 fluorescent tube (for reptiles) at half price.  I'll give it a try when the Northern Light clones move to the bud tent.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
