Supplemental Lighting Suggestions for UV A/B Exposure

Discussion in 'Advanced Growing Techniques' started by HydroGanic, Aug 13, 2008.

  1. I'm looking to maximize the medicinal content of some Sativas in an indoor grow.

    The search function won't let me search for things with UV and I'm coming up with way too many results for supplemental lighting LOL

    1) What type of UV A/B lighting have you used?
    2) How did you use it?
    3) Did you notice any difference(have a control group of some sorts)?


    Thanks

     
  2. So I've been searching other sources of information on UV A/B exposure when growing indoor Medical. In just about everything I've found there's been a definite effect on potency when added to the spectrum of the grow.

    The most commonly used lights have been those designed for reptiles.

    Florescent tubes
    Compact Florescents
    and also
    HID Mercury Vapor lamps

    Still curious to find anyone "live" that I can chat with about this that has experience with several types.
