Is it the same with 315 w CMH bulbs?
CMH is much more white looking so pics should be fine under those. I have a 400W Philips CMH that runs off an HPS magnetic ballast and colour looks like sunlight in pics.

Blurple and other LEDs are usually off but some of the full spectrum ones are OK. Most HPS suck tho. MH is fine.

:peace:

If you take a picture of a white piece of paper under those lights does it look white? The answer to that question equals the answer to yours ;)
The digital Nikon Coolpix 20.1mp camera I have has manual white balance. I just put a sheet of computer paper under the light to have it calibrate to that then the pics look fine under HPS or blurple even but I don't have one of those.

Hi friend. Is it possible I can ask u sir?
I can give you more details
Are you using soil or hydro?

Assuming it's coco what ec are you using?

Are you feeding each time until you 20% run off out of the bottom of the pots?

What are your temps and humidity?

They clones started in root riot that transfer to 1gal pot. After 2 weeks I gave a feed with plenty of run off. Then day after all had red stems and unhealthy.
Maybe pH is off and can't uptake properly.
Thank you for Ur time friend

I have grow light glasses that filter out all that red from hps. Put them infront of my phone and its like I'm taking a picture in natural light. They were only like $15 too.
I used to do that too with some VIVOSUN shades (works great). They have green lenses meant to correct for blurple lights. I upgraded to new light. I no longer need to use grow light glasses for photography, but I sure need them for my eyes now. I've had 15-30 minute spells where I sat my computer desk and couldn't do much because my eyes ached so much from exposure. I'd recommend glasses like these to anybody.

I'd like to get a pair myself but need some that work over my reading glasses or I can't see shit close up. I found a pair once but they cost an arm and a leg. My Nikon CoolPix L32 20.1mp digi cam has manual white balance so I get great shots under any light after a quick calibration. Mostly HPS for me.

I can still see OK after working under the light but everything is colour-shifted for while and annoying. I'll wear a ball cap pulled down in front to cut out the overhead light a lot.

:peace:
