Hello @zack1, to use the far red leds as sleep/flower initiator you should turn on your far red leds when your regular grow lights turn off, for 5 to 10min up to 15min, too much of it could stress your plants and promote a bad flowering, so I suggest you take the time to experiment and find the sweet spot. They normally sleep in 2h with this boost you should gain 1,5h avg sleep time.

Let me know your results with it, happy growing!

Hi @zack1! If you're trying to reproduce a natural sunset, then you could start with 1h of red light before the night and when the light turns on. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing! :facepunch:

The plant don't use the green spectrum , that is why the bulbs to work in a box during night time are green. I think some green led can be a good night light option :blush::v::skin-tone-3:

Hey Zack1, interesting question ! very cool lights ! in my understanding any kind of light will awaken the plant, there is not sleeping light, if there is light the plant is not sleeping. anything less and anything more than 12/12 means the plant will not flower. simple as that. does this make sense ? hope this helps ! :rocket:
