  1. hi all my plants now about 6 weeks old about 8 inches tall 10 sets of leaves. got 70 watt hps and 200 watt cfl. been growing rapidly. i think i may of moved my hps to close yesterday. the top leaves have drooped and gone dry. so i have sprayed leaves and turned hps off for today. should she survive?

    any ideas or tips greatly appreciated

    cheers all
  2. yes, they should be survive for few days. the distance between tops and the hps should be 15 inches min, for hps 400watts should be about 20 inches, the cfl shouldn't does wrong of the plants, but they didn't be to close of course
  3. How close was your 70 watt HPS from the plants? 70 watts can be pretty close. I have a 400 watt light 12 inches from the tops of my plants but, I have a fan directly blowing at the tops of the plants towards the light and temp does not go above 84 egrees.
