Understand the Lighting Schedule
All Gardyns are set up with a default lighting and water schedules that are optimal for growing beautiful, healthy plants. If you are curious, here is what the default schedule looks like for all Gardyns.
The good news is we understand that different lifestyles may require adjusting the lights schedule. Gardyn gives you the freedom to customize your light schedule to fit your needs.
When making adjustments, it is important to be aware of what your plants need. Kelby recommends a total of 14 to 16 hours in Boost mode for the fastest growth.
Boost mode is shorthand for our maximum light intensity. Boost allows you to easily toggle between 100% lighting intensity and a dimmer setting of your choice.
The smiley face is Kelby's signal that your plants are getting enough light. The Gardyn is bright at first, but the light softens considerably once the plants are fully grown!
