Lavender flower?

Hi


I have an Ultra cfl and i am trying to grow lavender. It took awhile but came up nicely but not standing tall. Also it never flowered. I have 2 thoughts on a possible so,lution.

1. Since there are other taller plants in the Aerogarden I can't put the lights close to the plants.

2. Since I am using cfl bulbs there is only "white" light not the red and blue spectrum lights which are needed for flowering.


Any of thoughts on this matter? Would adding an additional red/blue spectrum light solve my non-folwering lavender?

 

Thanks

John

Welcome, John.

Welcome, John.

I just googled "how long does lavender take to flower from seed." According to that quick, shallow research ;) lavender a.) doesn't like wet conditions, and b.) could take til 2nd year outdoors. So, it's slow. Real slow.

Bringing the lights closer will help, but not a lot, unless the plant looks ill on the lower half.

White light includes all the red and blue. Extra light might make plants grow faster. But stick with 6500K daylight-color light.
