Grow Tip: Growing Cannabis Indoors With Purple LED Lights

Dude Grows Grow Talk clip 888 Scotty, Guru and Dude Talking about the use of purple LEDS in the grow room while answering DGC Member Jga632, who …


  1. What about CRI metrics? I rarely hear anyone talk about a light's CRI rating? The higher the CRI the better, in my opinion. Which LED grow lights provide the highest CRI? Thanks

  2. I have 19 different grow lights of which half are blurple and half are full spectrum White. I am going to tell you now that I have had just as good of results and success with the quality blurple fixtures that I own as I have with the full spectrum white fixtures I own. The only real advantage to full-spectrum white light is simply for inspection of your plants. That and green light helps to penetrate through the leaf canopy if you're one of those little girls that scared to learn how to prune their plants appropriately. Now while I do not necessarily want to use blurple fixtures that have only blue and red, having that purple or in some cases even an orangish or reddish tint to the light is not an issue and does not affect your growth. In fact Studies have shown that the red blue fixtures tend to produce slightly bit more in terms of yield but I'm not sure about quality. This is even backed up by dr. Bruce bugbee and his research. Before making dumb claims about blurple lights sucking, you may want to talk to The Experts and I guarantee that's not The Dude Grows. Not if his first comment about blurple lights is they aren't that good. That shows a major lack of knowledge.

  3. Purple leds good for veg. PINK or white is best for flower. Please if your going to talk about led colors talk about the three main type aka blupurple,pink and white.

  4. There are definitely quality blurples, clw ss 1110 is an amazing light. Guru does have a point, youll need more watts on a blurple to match a white led in terms of hp. Personally i would rather have the control over the plant morphology with the spectrum controller, and as a result losing a little bit of efficiency. The view mode which only turns the white leds on -is a really nice feature with the clw. I am not sponsored by clw and i definitely would have went a different route if i hadnt bought this light when i first was doing research a couple years back, but overall i like the fact that it has the uvb bulbs and you can run a full grow under it having the blues, whites and reds.

  5. Is gavita not made in the US? They've got a crazy LED model out, kind of a rip off of the Fluence spyder. Efficiency is up at like 2.6 – I think the GrowMaus light must be cheaper per photon though.

  6. I run both in different rooms….. my HLG 550 R2 is kickass, but my Blurple grows just as good to be honest and they’re Cronus LED With Bluetooth, remote, can take the red & blue out if you want and make it all white, pretty kickass

  7. The phytomax 2 has yet to disappoint.. is it the best no. But if you have it use it.. no need to buy another especially if it's just personal use … besides LEDs now days are like pc.. buy one today out of date tomorrow.. folks always say ohhh they good for 7 years.. who waits 7 years to jump on the next one…..with that logic why do
    Drop new ones with "upgrades" if the one you just got can go 7years.. end rant hahaha love the show keep it up dgc
