So I feel like my flytraps have been under this yescom 225 panel enough to give some solid results of before and after, its really a night and day difference in terms of color! Keep in mind these are the blurple lights! I haven’t seen this deep of a red before! The pictures where they’re green are before and the redder are now, night and day difference im absolutely loving it

Nice! I was a strictly outdoor grower for years, but the weather here Maryland has been really crappy the past few years. Yescom panels saved my collection. I let some of my new cultivars skip dormancy and stay under lights this past winter. They looked amazing! I placed them outside the beginning of spring and of course they now look like poo. They can’t handle the up and down 90°/30° spring weather. The ones I kept inside (Alien-types and red traps) still look very nice. Red flytraps will be almost purple black under Yescoms. I have the blue/whites and am loving the results.

I’ve had very similar results with the same type of lights. Yescom 225 blue red panels are not a joke. I’ve had the best results with these. Until the driver put on a light show of sparks. I woke up thinking someone lit a sparkler in the corner of the room, well it was worse. My yescom 225 led driver had gotten water on it from a leak in the window after a bad storm.

So do you leave the Blurple lights on them all of the time or just a portion of the day? Also, Would you mind posting a link to the exact lights you are referring to? Whenever I do a search for Yescom 225 I get various mixed results. Thanks

I left mine on for 18 hours. So it turned on at 7am and turned off at 1am midnight. It was the blurple lights. I never used white lights in the past.

Unfortunately, the Yescomm 225 are out of stock everywhere except for the red LEDs. I haven't found an equivalent at a similar price.

Dang! Well, I always check plain old google too, just to be sure.
