    There are many different green light bulbs on the market for this purpose .. The party bulbs are simply cheap painted bulbs and I do not advise using them ..

    You can get green LED head torches.

    Personally my feelings are that if you have to work during dark hours then your lighting cycle doesn't fit in around your life.

    I run my lights 7pm-7am and do any work that's required generally after 8pm(once my son is settled and asleep)

    ..high man, sorry i didn't get back to you sooner but you know how it is. ...anyway, yes is the answer to this question and if you send me a link to where you have your grow posted i'll come by and take a look although i'm not a hydro expert man, just a hobby grower who's been at it a few years is all, lol.

    ...high man, i can dig where you're coming from as i remember what it was like trying to run a small, closet op with children in the house.

    ...frankly though, i do all my chores under my green light in an effort to be kind to my eyes, HPS light is BRIGHT!

    ...i use a cheap, green, CFL that is probably just one of the painted bulbs but i've been using it and doing all my chores under this green light now for almost a year with absolutely no issues.

    peace, bozo

    yeah man ill pm ya some pics. so that party bulb does work? sweet, i won't have to get a diff bulb but if u think it might matter i can throw down the couple bucks for a better one; i dont mind using that green one somewhere else. but yeah word man ive been working on the hydro issues and still have lots to learn so ill figure some stuff out and send pics in a while thanks bozo and others for all your help. much appreciated.

    ...yeah man, it'd be better if you could post up your pics and your issues in public forum, that way it will be easier to discuss and, because it will be in a public thread you will get feedback from many sources, ...like i say, i'm no expert.

    ...there is also the fact that there are others who may be suffering the same issues and would benefit from reading, and participating in, our discussion.

    peace, bozo

    Word bozo im gonna get things posted up tonight , I have a lot going on and can't afford vegging any more with no production ; I will most likely cut all the plants tops off and clone them and scrap the grow and restart everything

    I've never had a problem with using the party bulbs,

    Though, I bought a green LED flash light from amazon that I use to get into my grow area and check things out.

    If I am going to be in there for a minute or need both my hands I turn on the green "party bulb"

    It just makes life easier

    I don't see the point in going in after dark you got 12 hours to work in your flower room.

    mjjbabel Well-Known Member

    I like going in during the dark period because of the brightness from the hps.

    Dasim22 New Member

    i won't have to get a diff mild but if u think it might problem i can throw down the several money for a better one; i don't ideas using that organic one somewhere else.

    Darn, I wish I would have read this post a month ago. I bought the cheapest green (I am assuming it is a pary bulb, it isn't a CFL) bulb I could find, because my grow area is in my bedroom closet. I use it late at night when getting ready for bed. I keep the closet door closed, so the only possible light leaks are from the green light. I haven't noticed any bad effects from it yet. So the first chance I get, I will get a green CFL, is that correct?

    Another question is, if the closet doors are closed, is it a bad idea to watch TV at night during the dark period? I have a TV upstairs, but it is just so comfortable to watch TV in bed.
