Sounds interesting...who wouldn't want stronger, faster growing, disease resistant plants?  Need to know some more details.  Maybe the extra included article had more info, but don't have the energy for reading right now

From the research I have done which seems to parallel this info, UV, fungal, bacterial, IR and even ultrasonics can and DO have a beneficial effect when given @the right time.... use of UV reptile lights to help increase trichome production has been going on for a couple of decade now...exposing the plant to UV @ different stages of life has different effects.

I can see an anti-bacterial effect for seeds and seedlings....I can see exposure of seedlings effecting some type of genetic kickstart to some growth mechanism within the plant.

 

Perhaps the same may be had for exposure when entering/ending the other different stages of growth.

 

might need to :rollone:  and thinking.gif  some on it. I got a lot of thoughts on the subject but have yet to have a cohesive picture of it in my mind.

I would definitely appreciate the research and your thoughts muA.

Here are some links I have begun browsing through...will be reading deeper into them over the next few weeks.

 

This is not a simple problem to be solved with a yes, no or  checklist.

 

Growth of plants involves complex genetic, metabolic and chemical processes all interacting with each other.

 

I suspect the growing method in the original post will be set exposure times @set UV levels during set time of the plants growth cycle and life cycle.

 

Too much exposure causes damage and sometimes stunting of plants, but in other cases it is beneficial to different plants.

 

A complex can-O-worms indeed! muahahaha Hysterical thinking.gif :monkey-with-glasses-smoking-smi :33zzold:  Knowledge! FEED the BEAST! :meatballs:

I have a couple of research papers on UV-B light...somewhere. Its biggest effects are during flowering/fruiting...

Would love to read em when ya find em, KD...and yes, the last half of flowering seems to be an optimum time for UV-B exposure to really develop trichs....though methinks seed treatment and perhaps a few mins exposure each day for the first week or two of growth will also give seedlings a kickstart to some degree.

Common sense(basically what I have to work with) would tell me if you wanted to prevent disease you should use it when they're young, and then

off and on throughout the cycle for other benefits.  That's a lot of info to sort through muA
