    I think that's a hippy myth.

    That is a bogus myth. If you use black lights, you will starve your plants of the true light spectrums they need and they will die.

    there is nothing that can replicate the sun, anything that contains the same spectrums or very close to the same is what you want.... but i dont grow indoors so i really dont know much about lighting and such..... so really i have no bussiness answering this thread.

    Sounds like you know exactly what you are talking about to me. Indoor growing is just trying to replicate the perfect outdoor climate. :)

    I would to ask something about the black light
    I got this large bank of black lights and it gives of a lot of light
    And I would like to know if it would be good to grow but before you all
    say no, please see the type of black light I'm asking about.
    ( SYLVANIA 365 Backlight F20T12 ) - UV & MV Bulbs

    It is not the hobby type of black light; it is very bright to the eyes


    Hope it was OK to add my question to this to this post
