Just posted about the grow light I got. I have it set up in my basement which stays between 55-75f during winter. I have Mexican flame vine plants that I wish to keep as well as 2 tropical hibiscus plants. This grow light has red, blue and white lights but no instructions as to which to use when. Don't want growth during winter, just to keep plant alive . the Mexican flame vine is aggressive, growing 12" a month. Any ideas on what setting to use on the grow light as far as the colors? I have the option to turn off and on each one. Also, do I use these during the day, we do get some indirect light to that area so right now have timer set for 12 hours of light during mostly daylight hours. Thanks!
