My 600w LED lights have a switch for grow and a switch for bloom. Or I can turn on both grow & bloom and use them together. Is there ever a time that I would use both at the same time? If so, when and for how long? Or should I just use grow during the grow cycle and bloom during the bloom cycle?
I would consult my user manual…
I have one of those lights as additional lighting. I have kept both switches on from day one. Will not hurt in flower or veg.
Thank you. I have 7 of them & I did not want to damage anything using them both ways.
Glad to help. Good luck growing.
Yea just keep them both turned out, it’s just a “full spectrum” light at that point. They utilize it all during the entire grow
With both on it will boost your watts up anywhere from 80-120 watts
My light have the switch also you use the grow only for the veg and then when you turn them to 12/12 put both switches on and use both the grow and Bloom for the flower stage. And you will get a harvest similar to this or better
Awesome looking bud and thanks for the knowledge
I use the veg switch for seedlings. I start at 24 inches and lower it about an inch a day to adjust the plants to the light intensity until I get it about 12 inches away. Then when it is strong in veg with a good root system I put the light back at 24 inches and flip on the bloom switch with veg still on so the plants can get full spectrum.
It’s the same effect as using a dimmer on those really nice full spectrum led lights like the HLG or the Mars Hydro ones.
A 2 cycle light has 2 switches, 1 for veg, you can run both at same time if running autoflowers, if running a photoperid you run the veg switch only then when u flip to flower you turn off veg switch and turn on bloom switch.
I have never encountered this problem or question so I’m glad I ran into this chat. #neveradumbquestion
You can run both together. It will not hurt the plants during veg. I have did it before, and still do, when using a light with both.
