I didn’t realize how bad lux was for reading values for lights until I put in my Mars hydro (replacing a full spectrum parfactworks) I was getting 30k lux at 24 In for the parfact lights but only getting like 300 ppfd where as with the mars I’m at 18 in getting 16-24k lux reading but the par map has me at 600-700 ppfd
I have a mars hydro ts600 . Im gonna do 1 ata a time so im hoping it will do the trick for now. I also looked at the lux value but haven’t tested.
That’s what I’m saying no point in doing lux reading for such an efficient light your better off doing par judgment my 1 week seedling loves being at full light(600 ppfd) so I recommend for the 600 is start your seed at 18 in (400 ppfd) and up it to 14 inch 1 week in , it might be a little wispy around the edges but you may be able to get through flower at 12 in if you LST them
Thanks!! I really appreciate it!
