  1. I Have 8 24 Watt Veg Bulbs In It, This Is My Second Day Using This Lamp I Upgraded From Cfl's!! ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1414361494.450931.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1414361503.903383.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1414361514.687651.jpg

  2. You should light only one or two bulbs and keep them at least 6-8 inches away while the plant is that small. As it develops more leaves, you can turn more bulbs on and move the light closer.
  3. Haha. Yeah, its kinda overkill. I'd just move it back 10-12 inches and you'll be fine.
  4. Thanks guys

  5. I like my plants to be a little warm under a fluro ..... 5-6 inches, up to 8" as said above is a good range to put the seedlings at.
  6. Ok Thanks
