Mixing colors with lights?

Hello all,

My plant is still vegetating, my goal is to use it as a mother plant. I just put a new fluorescent light that covers more area than the previous one. It has 6 fluorescent tubes. 2 cool white, 2 blue and 2 red. Am I inducing flowering with those colors or is it fine for veg?

Thanks,
:Namaste:

Flower is based on the amount of light received over a period of time. The colors will not make it flower.

Do you have T8 ?

T5 It seems like the output of all colors the white predominates. (At least to my eye) Btw is white widow. Light is on 24/7

Thanks

I'm not so sure that the cool-white has much benefit to your plants. Hosebomber is a good person to chime in and either agree or correct me.

Are you using high output T5?

You want 6500k and 2700k

A mixture works for flowering or any stage. I have used the Quantum Bad Boy's for a while with great results. I would usually mix 80/20
