I have two 240w quantum board LEDs for my 4x4 tent.  Is there a guide somewhere on how to use these?  How to set dimmer and distance from plants etc???.

@deepstuff Morning As far as the Led Quantum boards go, I usually start mine at 36" above the plants when they are young and work the lights down to 24" as they get bigger in veg. I use node spacing as my guide  it the spacing is more than i want I will lower the lights some while watching for signs of light stress.

As the plants go into flower I will stay at 24" through the flower stretch period (first 2 weeks of flower) then i will slowly lower the lights to 12" - 16"  while watching for signs of light stress.

some plants will let me get to 12" from the canopy some will not.


Sativa to change the things I can, Indica to accept the things I can’t.

Do you use the dimmer at all after plants are past the seedling stage?
