2 lights with round lighting pattern in a square tent: placement?


Well-Known Member
Just wondering if these lights would be better in the center of the tent or one in each corner?

Totally depends on the coverage of the light, or the covered area

Also depends on where the plants are

I'd say over the plants is best
it's a 5x5 and it's pretty much full. my friend said 2 circles fit without as much overlap in a square better in the corners lol. smart ass got me wondering.

Depend on the light coverage, the coverage is depend on its ppfd that reaches at the edges, plants needs at least 200umol/s/m2 to grow and 500 to flower. So if the light can do perfectly for that area, putting in the middle or corner makes no difference; But if the light cannot ,you might think about add more lights and put the lights evenly in the tent to help the plants get evenly lights. :circle-of-love:
