Whatup DGC! Hope ya’all are well!
My question is this….
Using 2 hlg 260 rspec, plus a 135 rspec in a 4×7 area. 5 galln grow bags. 7 plants. 3 Loud Cannagenix Gluelato, 3 T.H. Seeds LA SAGE, and a gifted ExoticGenetics Musty Buffalo. (Shout out to SeedsHereNow!)
What is best – keeping the lights dimmed and lower / closer to the plants or turned up higher / further away? Sure efficiency is great, but does the end result turn out better one way or the other?
I feel like they are staying too squatty and get no stretch because i ran the lights too close early on. I have since raised them and they seem to be happier. Will that stunt them the entire life cycle if i over-lit them early? Im about 3 – 4 weeks in veg…
All i currently have is a lux meter on my phone and have found some reference numbers of around 25000 for veg and 36000 for flower. So i can at least check somewhat for even distribution. Hope to get a better meter soon.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
