  2. I’m pretty sure led lights can be a lot closer to your plants

  3. So far right now it’s 28 inches away
     
  4. How are the plants reacting to where it is right now? If you so desire.....you can drop it 2 or 3 inches every couple of days until they start fussing.....if you are determined to get it as close as possible.......but remember the plants will be growing and getting taller, putting them closer to the light every day

  5. Also with led lights, there’s not a standard distance. It varies so you would want to go by the manufacturer height recommendation.

  9. Yes it is.
     
  10. [​IMG] not to burst your bubble but if you go down to the description it says otherwise
     
  11. It’s a marketing technique

  12. Smh, does this mean I need to buy another light ? I’m a new grower and this is the first grow. Wow smh so what does this mean?
     
  13. Unfortunately yes. Just add another to that one till it dies or use it just for veg and get something better for flower if you have the $$. Looks like a good set up otherwise. Nice looking plants
     
  14. Yeah it’s a ok light for veg or for one plant but if I were you I’d look into quantum boards
