Welcome to Percys man, thanks for your kind words
Mixing lights is nt a problem really, and IMO can improve the spectrum and give plants more of what they need. If you have the space for an extra light, add it
In my last grow I ran 4 plants 2 under TS1000's and 2 under marshydro blurple lights the 2 unter the TS1000's were more dense but the 2 under the blurple seemed like they were frostier. I will try again to see if this holds true, So this has me thinking a mix maybe good
Sativa to change the things I can, Indica to accept the things I can’t.
Yeah, I usually like to run my two shitty blurple LEDs alongside my 600W HPS in the 4x4.. and like Twisted said, the plants under the LEDs do seem a bit frostier/tighter. Correlation does not equal causation however so, more tests are needed.. 🧐 🤓
I would say the more light the merrier though.
I have to agree with Twisted. Did a split tent run and the white light were denser but blurple made up in trichs.
BTW welcome to the community, hang around and join the conversations. Love new ideas.

Welcome brooks, I would also say mix is good for them, but definitely no expert in grow lights. Even when u use the sun surly they get different light, cloud cover, rain, bright days, does that affect the parr? I think so but will leave it to the experts(macky, twisted, TempleGrower)these guys have all the right Answers and mess around with all sorts of lights to test them.
cheers for all the replys people my first time mixing lighting types, i have got 2 615watt lumii solar cdms up 2 hps 600watt on digital ballasts and a mitiz 600watt replacement led up. myabe abit overboard? but im making the most of having more space then usual so ive had to mix my lights as i got the 2 cdms recently and couldnt afford to buy 5 news ones so i mixed with what i had already. seeing great results but ive been moving them around abit in veg so i havent been able to monitor the differnce under each light. but i have now flipped and will be keeping them under the same lights from now so i can see the differentals in each, exited to find out so will keep you guys updated thanks for the support. wish everyone the best in these trying times. stay safe any tips on good posts to read on the page much appreciated.
sounds like a great lighting set up mate! Get a diary started so we can see how it goes? That would be awesome
