    Question What Effect Do UV Rays Have On CPs

    Noticed my UV index is usually high and was wondering what effect it could have on my plants, if any.

    It causes intense coloring on CPs, it causes them to make lots of red pigment as a form of sunblock. It can also stunt growth and cause UV burn in some plants that aren't accustomed to it.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I'm using the nuclear reactor on NC State University's campus. It's part of my undergraduate research project.

    I'm not joking. I'm a student at NC State and that's part of my undergrad research project. I'm trying to develop new cultivars via irradiation and oryzalin treatment
