Light's would work. Best Roll an old car/truck into the garage to help justify odd lighting schedules and frequent trip's in/out.
It wouldn't be problematic. It wouldn't go through any transition.What interests me is if the transition to the more traditional white light would be problematic, or would it be similar to emmersed/submersed transition where new leaves grown in the new conditions are suited for the light they're receiving
Wow. You blew my mind. I know exactly what I'm going to do now!! 😁Yep, totally will work, better in fact than any "planted tank" light. It gives the plant the exact color spectrum it needs to grow. It just doesnt look very pretty... but money is pretty... so... it all works out
If you grow the plants emersed (out of water) you (almost) cant give the plants too much light. Check out my video here showing how I had success with growing plants.
Sweet, just remember me when I come to you for plants haha 0Wow. You blew my mind. I know exactly what I'm going to do now!! 😁
This means? I have never heard the term, sorry.No green light = no elongation of internodes.
Area between the "nodes".This means? I have never heard the term, sorry.
https://scholars.opb.msu.edu/en/publications/blue-light-inhibits-stem-elongation-of-chrysanthemum-3the blue LED NI inhibited internode elongation by approximately 60%. The inhibitory effect of blue light occurred during the night interruption and in the subsequent light period. These results indicate that blue light could be used to inhibit extension growth and therefore could reduce the application of plant growth retarding chemicals.
Impatiens..Could LEDs replace plant growth retardants?
Researchers at Michigan State University used LED lights to produce compact flower and tomato seedling plugs.
No green light = no elongation of internodes.
Sooo... We want elongation of the internodes?Area between the "nodes".
Between leaf attachment points.
Heavy blue light leads to little expansion of th internode area creating compact, yet bushy plants..

Old style Apogee quantum sensors are not very good w/ those types of lights especially if using 660nm reds....I'm thinking of setting up a tank inside my garage to grow some plants to make money on the side and I'm wondering if a horticultural LED grow light would work? I know in the SW world they are popular in refugiums.
I was actually looking at some other bulbs and they were tested to be 150 PAR at a height of 24 inches...
Something like this:
In our study, anthocyanin content was significantly increased in 24 ～33% with supplemental red and mixed red light treatments
In contrast, blue light increased levels of anthocyanins in tomato (Giliberto et al., 2005) and Capsicum annuum (Azad et al.,2011). More studies are needed to clarify the mechanisms of
