Need some help with dli

What is the proper dli for a seedling and or how high should my light be

Seedling DLI should be 15-20, these numbers will determine the height. Raise, lower or adjust the intensity to hit the 15-20 :love_you_gesture: I’m generally around 24” at 30% for the small 100 watt light I use or I also use a T5 fluorescent for the 1st two weeks. You can always fall back on the manufacturer’s recommendation

Nice, watch for stretching at 30”. Is the light dimmable? If so you can always lower the light and intensity if she starts stretching too much :love_you_gesture:

Questions. I notice alot of people say they are at that height. Mine started stretching crazy so i put them under my desk. Under a blurple light on blue only i think. May have been both. but only 6 inches from top if plant. Placed light on these as stands.

And they became monsters


Why does everyone say so high so weak ? Jw

Height doesn’t really matter much if you use DLI.

I run a MarsHydro FC-E4800 and keep the light at 50% 30in. from my canopy and don’t seem to have issues with stretching. I drop it to 12in. During flower at 100% obviously. :man_shrugging:t3:

Nice plants definitely. I’m definitely going to look forward to watching them mature here. The best grown is homegrown! Green👍🏻
