Any suggestions as to if my exhaust should stay center, or towards an end. Air flow left to right. Lamp definately fills her up! Lots of cable, wire, rope etc to configure and secure. Still 2 clip ons to go in as well. Beast of a light. I think ive mentioned that. I can slide exhaust front to back if needed as well
Mines the same way but even tighter I’m not worried about it I’ll lift my light right up to my filter if I have too. I think the 15inches is because heat escapes upwards so you want to leave some space for the heat to disperse but I may be wrong haha
I have my chilled tech set at about 30” and I have her plugged into my killawatt meter so I can see my watts and she’s sitting around 130 watts. She started to stretch when I had it at like 3 feet and 100 watts so lowered and turned up a little
Hlg recommends keeping between 15" and 24". Larger space you are in the higher will need to be in order to have light coverage equal to the space.
Depending on conditions the space and particular plants, they may be more or less sensitive to stronger light intensity. So giving you predetermined guidance isn’t always going to give you the best results.
