I'll confess that I do something I'll bet no one else does. I had a couple of extra T8 fixtures (T8s are all I do early veg under), so I rigged 'em up in my grow room on the front and back sides of the main lights. They turn on half an hour before the big boys do, and then turn off when the main lights come on, then turn on just before the big ones turn off, then stay on for another half hour.My LED’s have a UV LED in them. I also have done T5 bulbs with UV and have been happy with my results but I have no side by side comparison grows(nor any lab data) so I cannot vouch for UV either way.
Why? In my head, it more mimics nature. We don't go from pitch black to high noon outside.
Does it have any effect? HellifIknow. Makes my brain happy, anyhoo.
