Light questions

So I just received this baby right here


And I was wondering my girls are 6 weeks 5 day in bloom. Should I wait till harvest and throw it in with the batch I’ll be doing next or should I throw it in now and get rid of the old lights?

Adjust to the lowest light intensity and switch them out. The HLG lights need to go in. Especially since you still have time to grow this crop. :+1:

Look at that black rubber circle on the one corner of the Meanwell driver. That is how you adjust them. :+1:

Pop this rubber seal off. You use a pretty tiny Phillips screwdriver. Turn counter clockwise you will go till it stops. I think that is when the light is around 50%.

So I don’t need it at high? Why low?

Turn them on full blast. Make sure you have awesome sunglasses that can block out the light. You will understand what I mean when I say its like having the Sun in your tent.

The plants won’t be prepared to take a blast right out the door.

So that’s why I should do it at low at first?

Do low as stated and turn up a little each day until it’s up to OMGICantSEE

Be sure to not look directly at light. It can and will damage your eyes.

Good deal @ZigZag I am happy for you I would pick up a set of LED protective glasses you can get a set for about 10 bucks. As mentioned I would definitely install right away.
