Seed germination - Red, Blue or both for LED'shi

by pcam86 » Sun Sep 15, 2019 11:31 am

Hi,

I'm new to growing but just wondered which coloured light out of Red, Blue or both make any difference on germinating CP seeds?

As a tester i bought a cheap 18W light so this may not be good enough to make any difference at all. It may also be too far away from the seeds.

I have lights very close to this, if not the same. I know they are probly not the best but my seeds have germinated under them so I can verify that they work. I'm working on updating my set up now but they have been just fine for me.

Thanks for the reply. I did change these to 75W full spectrum white lights now as I ended up trying to grow too many seedlings at the same time so needed more coverage
