Light Distance during flower

  1. Hey all, 
    About to start Flower and I'm wondering how far from the lights I should keep them. It's CFL so should I follow the same procedure for Veg and just keep them as close as possible?

  2. Yes, with cfls you will want to keep them 1 - 2" away.
  3. From all the reading I've done on these forums in would say keep them as close as possible
  4. Yes, close as possible, without touching 
  5. +1 on all above posters, as close as you can throughout the process.
    (Think of getting a HPS, in 2 weeks it made a very noticeable difference going from CFL to HPS, same wattage, buds were almost twice as dense as using CFL.)
  6. Place CFL 6-7 inches above your plant. I believe CFL is best for veg and HPS for flower.
