No--black light is still light. Although plants reflect green light, I do not recommend working on your girls at all during lights out.

Agrolite has a lamp of 100watts called DarkNight.

Here the description:
"Plants rich in chlorophyll absorb light at almost all wavelengths of the visible spectrum, reflecting only light around the fringe of 510 nm (green) which do not perform photosynthesis."
"Darknight Agrolite bulb is a high power halogen with a filter specially designed to eliminate all wavelengths respecting this, in this way to work in greenhouses and indoor growing during the hours of darkness, allowing human vision and the utmost respect the life cycle of plants."

Going into your flowering room to work during the dark period is just asking for hermies. I do not care what the hype is on any bulbs, it is simply not a good idea to be going in and out of the flowering room during dark. Most people cannot even enter their rooms without some ambient light entering.

It depends on what needs to be done. NEEDS is the keyword. I wouldn't make it a habit but I'll do it when necessary.

I swear I was having a stoner moment yesterday when I posted that. I literally questioned my own self double checking the section I was in before posting. Was just really odd that I hit 2 in a row about lighting and stuff, being in the outdoor section.... hahaha :stoned:

I use my Android phone with the color flashlight app. ...set flashlight color to green.

Any green light should be okay. ...Try to stay away from the incandescent ones with film covering. They tend to leak other light spectrums.

Is there a reason that you are not running your veg lights 24/7?

Interrupting the dark cycle can and will cause hermies. IMO, anyone who disturbs the dark, even with a green light is just asking for trouble. You can set your flowering cycle to be any time of the day or night you want, so why does anyone need to go into the flowering room after lights out except for an emergency--ie something like water coming from under the door?

i agree...stay away from the plants in the dark...BUT if you have to do something in the room or need to look at them for some reason a GREEN LIGHT does not get photosynthesized or recognized by the plant.

...what shade of green? well now there's a good question...lol :p



peace,

http://www.marijuanapassion.com/forum/showthread.php?t=57761 I think he's OD,.. 'el natural thg ;) but I agree whole heartedly with the darkus interruptus message.
I always figured it easier to explain being out in the woods during daylight, than explaining sneaking around in the dark with a green light.
