Starting up beginner style


#41

I start my seedlings under a 120w (actual) chinese led. I don’t use the quantums until they get transplanted and moved to the 4x4 tent.

I know i sound repetitive, But thanks for all the info, and a respectful shout out to all the expats on these days.
Ok @blackthumbbetty @dbrn32 @SilentHippie @DoobieNoobie can a external fan controller be fitted to the HGL lights to make it easier than the screw driver?

Thanks everyone for everything.

No the type of driver that can be dimmed externally has extra leads and requires a specific dimmer.


#44

I agree, a series dimming doesn’t work that way. You could probably extend wiring a little to mount driver in a place that’s easier to get to though

Hlg 550 is a big light for seedlings, I’d run it high if you do that.

The 320 was almost too much for seedlings. :grinning:. Had to set it at 100w, 28" above. Definitely efficient.


#46

Ok @blackthumbbetty @dbrn32 @SilentHippie @DoobieNoobie got the seedlings under the VIPARSPECTRA Reflector-Series 300W its drawing around the 120w now i watch and wait and adjust the height of the light accordingly.

Thanks everyone, give someone a hug and make the day brighter.
