Green Lights for Marijuana Growers

Green Lights for Marijuana Growers

Q: Hi. Some growers use green lights to work in their grow when the lamps are off. Do you see any issues with that?

Green Headlamp for Marijuana CultivationA: Indeed you can use green lights if needed to interrupt the dark cycle of a plant. This should be done more on more of an as needed basis than regularly as I’ve heard compelling arguments that plants do indeed process the green light though much less rapidly or intensely than red or blue.

I would also point out that some “green” lights are simply white lights with a green tinted cover on them. The light to use would be a green led headlight. I use this one as needed for pre-dawn foliar feeding, or to switch laundry during the night cycle at former house!

Whether you’re growing your cannabis indoors our outdoor in the Colorado sun, from clone or from seed, it’s all about the light, so make sure you’re as informed and careful as possible. –  Sam
