Keep it all the way up brother. Don’t be afraid to run that light full tilt. :call_me_hand:

Set that light around 15 inches above the canopy and let her rip full power. :metal:

Really?

Yes sir! Full tilt! Trust me on it. @Flipdawg08 @JJ520 @CooterJuice @Tylersays all have the Scorp D. Look at their grows. Give them plants full power.

HLG recommends veg 24" and flower @18" and using it at full power without CO2 added is mainly running up your electric bill. I have one and it is a phenomenal light but is probably overkill for most growers, including myself. I have 3 other HLG’s and like them all.

There’s a big misconception between ppfd and co2. c02 is needed if your temperatures exceed 85° , which is absolutlely possible with the Scorp D if your air flow and ventilation aren’t up to snuff. I’ve never reached 85° at the canopy, in either of my tents during grows.

Your plants do not need c02 supplementation as long as your temps are under that threshold. I hammer my lights full tilt for penetration purposes to avoid larf and or popcorn.
Even adding c02 to your tent will do nothing because the stomata on the leaves isn’t in duress because the temps aren’t a factor.

I have no doubt that’s why HLG put that provision on this light. Technically yes at full tilt you would need c02 if it’s just the lights and plants inside a grow space with no ventilation. Temps would definitely exceed 85°

Get a floor unit just for the room you’re growing in? I use one all through the winter as well. If I don’t pump cold air in the tent through my intake fans from the room. My temps will go crazy high. If I can keep the temps in the room around 68 to 70 degrees. My tent stays stable between 77 and 79. When the lights go out the AC goes out with them. Night time temps range from 68 to 74 degrees. :call_me_hand:

I’ve got a mini split in the room the tent is in so no dramas keeping temps down just the cost of running it constantly in summer. The plants have reacted well to the extra light they’re all most thanking me, they’re pumping just hitting there stretch now and stacking up perfectly going to be some big rods on this one

Don’t hesitate to post some pics of your girls my friend. We all love plant , root, and trich porn around here. :rofl::call_me_hand:

I hear you on running the AC. I have no choice but to though. If you’re in winter see what you can do to pull some of that cold air in. During summer run your lights during the dark period(evening and night). It all helps.

If you don’t mind me asking. Where in the world is it still winter? :joy:

yeah i still run it on heating in winter just to keep it at a minimum 20C overnight and the winter air keeps the tent at an average of 25C and max 27C during lights on.
