I've had these leds laying around from my old reef tank, and I was curious how well if at all they would grow plants.
Each unit has 2 channels, a mostly white channel and a blue channel that are adjustable from 0-100%.
I have one set to 20% white
and the other 20% blue ( I know, will most likely not work but I'm curious of the outcome)
I put the leds right next to each other so that the plants on the left get mostly white, the plants in the middle get a mixture of blue and white, and the plants on the right get mostly blue.
I chose radishes for my testing plant since they grow so fast and I have tons of seed. I planted 48 seeds across the shelf.
If they do work I want to try and dial them in to optimal plant growth by adjusting the brightness and color ratio and seeing how the radishes react.
A few pics;
Thanks for looking!
I am excited to see how this plays out.
