You're somewhat correct on the color spectrum required for vegetative growth. Bluish color (6500K) helps to grow beautiful greens while reddish color (3000K) helps with fruiting. I haven't really grown with LEDs, but I believe it'd be the same as cfls; you really gotta keep the light/light panels a few inches above the plants at all times to keep the plants from getting leggy and toppling over. I wouldn't use an MVB for growing since the heat can be seriously intense.I have a mix of miracle gro(no fertilizers) and top soil, about 4-5 inches deep. The lighting is my 160W MVB and a 60W LED in the cool or blue light spectrum( it appears white and is meant for plants).
not only is it not safe, it is downright dangerousI would like to know if I can use this, everything is all natural ingredients found in the wild, no weird chemical fertilizers.
Sorta a mix of all of this, except the balding.Hmm.. if you have earthworms living in your medium, then the medium would actually be pretty moist I would think. Also, earthworms provide aeration as well as nutrients for plants so I would think adding fertilizers *could* cause more problems. What exactly do the plants look like when declining? Crisping up, flopping over, yellowing, smaller leaves, balding?
