Boosting Window Light
When you're growing in a window that gets morning sun, and you add supplemental bulbs (say LEDs)to the bright sunlight, are the plants getting better light? Or put another way, when you add a less intense light to a more intense light, are you getting brighter light? Do I have a brain? The jury is out.
So if I was going to supplement a morning-sunny window, does it only make sense to use the supplements during the part of the day that the sun isn't hitting the plants, or on cloudy days?
My goal is to change a non-supplemented phalaenopsis-suitable window to a light-supplemented cattleya-suitable (minis, probably) window. Hopefully using LEDs, but I'm brand new to this technology.
