Has anyone experimented using colored flourescent lights to supplement their growing spectrum? I have one of those spirally flourescent bulbs in red, and I've been putting it over my pings during their normal photoperiod (along with 3 tube flourescents) and sometimes at night. The bulb produces almost no heat, and I read recently that the red end of the spectrum encourages flowering. I was also wondering if it could help color up my VFT 'Red Dragon' as well as some of my Neps and Darlingtonia.
Does anyone see a reason I shouldn't do this? Could it be beneficial?
Also, when selecting tube flourescents, which is more important, amount of lumens, or CRI and Color Temperature?
Thanks for any advice,
