Hi guys just wondering what you have your light percentage and height at, I've a migro array 8 Pro red it says when I bought it to leave it at about 8 inch above canopy mine is a little higher then that and my light is at about 35% to 40%. I don't no wether this should be turned up yet or not I'm only about 2 weeks into veg 3 weeks since the first signs of growth. Just wondered what you guys thought or would do thanks .

@buster2704 Iv got an Aray 4, I asked Shane about hight and power for seedlings and this is what he said,You can either have them 40 to 50cm below the light at full power or at the optimum 18cm height and dim down to about 30% for very young seedlings.

Dont know if thats any help for the stage your plants are at, but I think Iv had my light going full throttle most of the time at about 6-8" above my plants in veg and flower. I dont know about the Aray 8 tho 🙂  

In the corridors of power where the talks are in full swing
If you can't say it with flowers Then don't say anything

@buster2704 maybe your phone does not have a light sensor - but a lux meter is also cheap to buy
