The FS+UV can be used in conjunction with standard T5’s in a 50/50 mix inside the fixture. Placing the lamps in every other socket within the fixture can maximize the intensity of standard T5 with the spectral quality and UV of the PowerVEG FS+UV.
The FS+UV is best utilized when combining it with the PowerVEG Colors (420,460, 633 & 660) to create customized spectral output for specific stages of plant growth. See formulas below.
Recommend Light Cycles
If running 24 hours ON with standard T5, reduce cycle to 19 hours when using 100% FS+UV grow lamps.
When using a 50% FS+UV & 50% standard T5 light mix – NO CHANGE in light cycle necessary.
When using one of our suggested formulas—NO CHANGE in light cycle is necessary
When using an 18 hour ON cycle or less – NO CHANGE in light cycle necessary regardless of lamp mix.
Recommended Height Above Canopy:
The recommended height above the canopy of plants should be between 8”-16”. The optimal height is 12”.
