Mars lights/hanging heights/light intensity

Forum Regular
Points: 4409

Hi guys 

I know alot of Percy Grower's use mars lights and have noticed the odd comments about raising their lights 

I'm currently growing under a tsw2000 and had the light dimmed to 50% when they were babies slowly increased it to 60 now just under 75% and now in flower the light is roughly 26/27 inches away from my flowering plants I have however got a few others growing in the tent along side my Autos on the edge of the grow and showing signs of canoeing I feel I have over the month of using the light I'm dimming or raising light 

I'm wondering what everyone's experiences are with their hanging heights and are they running Thier lights at 100% intensity 

My gorilla girl is growing quickly and noticed her canoeing

I did not dim and just hung the Lamp higher. There is a TS1000 review Grow in the Mars Subforum from me - there is all noted.

Plants are like children - always surprising you.

While canoeing can be caused by light intensity it is more commonly caused by too much heat. Hanging height can influence both heat and intensity. What temps are you looking at in the tent. 

Random acts of kindness make the world a better place

@james ahh yeh that's where I saw about you raising the light your plants looking great  👍 My plants love the light I want to crank it to max lol but don't want to have to pull the light away massively and loose the intensity
