Use both switches/modes :+1: i do it too :wink:
i learned that the only different is that more blue gives you less strecht and more leafs, more red gives you less leafs and more strecht. But that is only for the first 2-3 weeks, later its depends on the light power (par not Lumen!) As long as you use a full spectrum you dont need to really care about more red or blue. (But more red ist always better for bloom)

so it only depends on the Power of your lamp :grin: if you have enough power (30-50watt 1 saquare feet) only use bloom, otherways use full power :+1:

well they dont call it bloom lights for nothing right? newest science from 2018 says it's average spectrum not specific spectrum that's important. basically thats why all the new lights have warm white for veg and cool white for bloom... i mean when you look at the sky is the sun color blurple? the big idea is that those colors and the infrared spectrum increase the PAR and therefore the "penetration" and therefore increase the plant's metabolism. Does that make sense ? hope this helps ! :rocket:

You can use both switches, i think its common for flowering plants to enjoy the more red color spectrum but will flourish nonetheless . As for bloom enhancement hmmm buddah bloom, big swell, bloom factor X, big bloom...take your pick they'll all do well, usually having amino acids ,humic acids, some form of sugar(sucrose whatever). Triacontinol. Look for those various things and its probably a good option. Happy flowering.

Yes, use both switches of the LED panel: veg an bloom for flowering, the bluer light will help keep the internode shorter and the added wattage will give you better yield. Try to keep the day temperatures above 23°C (73°F) the grow rate slows down a lot below that value.

You should probably check with the LED manufacturer, but most I’ve seen recommend switching both the veg & flower lights on together when flowering. Looking good so far!
