On the hlg website they sell a far red lamp for just 40 bucks and they say just using this 15 minutes at the end of the light schedule, and you are able to run a 13 11 light schedule, is there a benefit to adding this? Pretty cheap if it does add benefits, Would I really one have to use it 15 mins a day? Wondering what the DGC’s thoughts where.
This is what the description is from the hlg website says
HOW IT WORKS
Under normal conditions it can take up to 2 hrs to change Phytochrome state from Pfr to Pr. Flower Initiator helps change Phytochrome state from Pfr to Pr within minutes. This helps finish the flowering cycle faster and also allows for a 13/11 cycle.
