Even though the blurple light seems "moonish" and dim, the plants will still be getting the wavelengths they need for active growth. Maybe if you dimmed them down to like 5% power it might work...I dunno.The Blurple lights or my normal lights? The Blurple lights I have do not have an adjustment on them.

You asked about using your blurple lights at night.Yes, I did ask about using Blurple at night as I was not sure about them. I bought them but within a couple of weeks I switched to a greenhouse and Vivosun light for most of my plants and a Mars Hydro for my germinating tent. I think I will contact Vivosun and ask if running at 5% or less would simulate moon light. Many years ago they use to sell fluorescent bulbs that simulated moon light.
I've read that the much dimmer moon light *might* have a little more infrared spectrum to it than direct sunlight does. You could try the white lights dimmed down greatly, or if you had a small infrared light you could try that. Infrared security camera light: https://www.walmart.com/ip/48-LED-Illum ... lsrc=aw.ds

However, depending upon the "critters" you are trying to control, something like the below alarm might be a better option. I used a similar one when the squirrels were attacking my plants, until I decided to cover everything with a cage. That works so much better and does not annoy the neighbors .
