How old are and in what stage of growth are you plants?

Flower 3 months

I would have the lights at the very top. But you can also lower the power down if that is a route you want to take.

My rule…if its to hot for my hand, its to hot for the plant.

I have two lights just like that an same size space. if you’re 3 months into flower . I think 21inchs would be a good starting spot I finished up at 18 inchs. At full wattage.

Hey I just put my new light into my tent and all I could say is WOW.
What a difference its like being outside.
Under lightage if thats a word was a major problem of mine and I didn’t even recognize it.
Thank you one and all.
Honestly I don’t know how you would put 2 of these in my 4x4 tent I would need sunglasses to tend to the ladies

I got mine on pulleys so I can do exactly that. I’ve got limited height, so however I can get as much light without hurting them.

I find it easier to move the plants higher

I usually either raise the roof or lower the floor. Works every time but terribly time consuming! Ha ha ha :joy:
