Hello, has anyone used a pink grow light for a cacti plant that doesn't get enough sun?
This bulb I have is Sunlite LED 9 watt, 120 volts, it shines hot pink... just curious if this will help the plant at all.

Thanks!

I don't know if anyone has done any studies on LED pinklight and cactus. Other plants grown under pinklight exhibit different growth patterns than under natural light, mostly they are taller and branch less.

But you are using this as supplemental light so your results will be different yet.
