One light, FOUR reasons you need this:
UVB light (within the range of 280-320nm) is normally received from the sun. When a plant detects UVB at 288nm, it produces the UVR8 protein. This protein acts as a chemical messenger, which signals to the plant to secrete more oils and resins to help protect itself from the UVB rays.
Only Solacure lamps have the UVR8 effect.
Virtually no lamps produce UVB in the 280-320nm range due, in part, to the limitations of the glass. Solacure lamps are the sole exception as they use a type of glass designed specifically for transparency across the entire UVB spectrum.
This patented glass technology, combined with our unique blend of phosphors and high output, is what makes Solacure lamps the most effective producers of UVA and UVB light and the only lamps capable of triggering the full UVR8 effect.
HOW TO USE
The exact UVB exposure time will vary, but a good entry point is to start with 2 hours a day split over 2 x 1hour intervals (within your light on period). Then increase exposure by 15mins every two days and checking for signs of burning on leaf tips - this is when you've hit "critical mass" and find the sweet spot for the amount your plant can absorb.
The total amount of UV will vary from 2 to 6 hours a day in grow tents and up to 12 hours in a bigger room.
Lamps should be used throughout the entire flowering period.
Lamps will last up to 3 flowering cycles for resin production, but you can run them until they finally fail to burn (approx 3000-4000 hours) for the suppression of moulds, mildew and pests.
Note, you should wear sunscreen and eye protection if working in this light.
