A photo of the plants and light would help. How many square feet do the plants take up? (I.e., How much space are you covering with the LED fixture?) Is that 450 actual watts? If not, what is the actual watts? (If you don't know, do you have a link to where it's sold?) How far is the light from the plants?Hello I am new I have a question. I started my plants on the first of this month. I thought it would start buds by now at least better than they are. My light are LED 450w use cal mag. They have grow about 8 inches since then. Am I just in a hurry or should I do something else.
..you're just in a hurry! :) This hobby is required much patience;Hello I am new I have a question. I started my plants on the first of this month. I thought it would start buds by now at least better than they are. My light are LED 450w use cal mag. They have grow about 8 inches since then. Am I just in a hurry or should I do something else.
I wouldn't change anything. What LED fixtures are they? If it's LEDs mounted in relectors and/or secondary lenses, if you move them closer they can stress the plant. But, if they're just mounted on white backboard I might move them closer later in flower.It seems to be. 3 lights covering. 6 feet. One that is the highest is at least 6 inches from light seems to like it. Should i move lights a little closer. Thanks
That's 25w/sq ft. If they're really good/efficient LEDs then that's about right. If they're Amazon stuff, probably need more light.It is 6 feet by 3 feet. Thanks i will leave them. Do they need more light when blooming
Those are sold on Amazon. But, I don't know if they're better than the mediocre stuff. I haven't looked at LED grow-light fixtures for 4-5 years. I don't know what's what.They are vipar spectra reflector series. They have a switch for veg and bloom should i just use the bloom or both like i have.
This can be a complicated topic. But, the big deal about ordinary household LED lightbulbs is that the LEDs are surface-mounted to the base. They all point "up." If you cut the diffusion globe off, you have instant directional light (without having to find a reflector to direct omni light where you want it, with reflection loss, etc.).Thanks for side lights i have some of those
