Our girl is 5 weeks old now and still going strong. The main grow cabinet has been emptied due to the latest harvest so I have now moved the Critical Auto out of the propagation box and in to the cabinet. I left the LED at maximum height which is about 65cm (25") from the canopy and she seems to be pretty happy but I'm not sure if I should start lowering it. In the past I haven't seen too much reaction from the plants when moving the light closer or further away, however in the last grow the plants got a little out of control and ended up within an inch of the LED. I would have thought that would do a lot of damage but the buds seemed to thrive and get larger than I have ever had before.
So I'm wondering if I should keep the LED a lot closer than the normal advice for a LED light? What do you guys think?
Feel free to check out my previous journal to see the plants almost touching the LED and the results of that, I thought it quite interesting. But yeah, any advice on this would be great as I'm quite unsure. Also, I have only one plant in the cabinet this time so it has more room than it should need to grow and being able to get things like lighting right would be a big benefit.
Topping has produced some great results so far. Heaps of colas springing up all over the place! I have tied a lot of them down to try and train the plant as evenly as possible but she has so many now it's getting hard to control. Loving the challenge though
As always, love to hear what you guys think!!
Yes I am as I still wasn't sure what to do however I was planning to lower it tomorrow. I just didn't want to affect the stretch by lowering it too much. I will try around 19" as you suggest though, thank you!Are you still at 25' above canopy? Before I lost my mars hydro 300w to a flood in the basement I had it 19' away. My plants loved it, no light bleaching or anything negative being that close.

Thanks mate.nice job training that.... I would hang a towel in front of the fan.. Have the towel hanging in a wallpaper tray full of water. That should help bring up the humidity a little.. 70 max..
Thanks dude, great to have you here!Looking awsome 5 mate count me in.good job so far
Thanks mate, that's a good idea but unfortunately don't have large funds at the moment. I would love to have a proper semi pro setup but funding dictates these thingsI hear people are grabbing 10 x 10 grow tents and sticking smaller tents 5 x 5 inside them and controlling the environment/odor 100%.. Your looking at 2g for the 2 tents.. But that would be pro level.. You would have a 5x5 flower room and 5x5 space for your vegging plants with plenty of space for a portable ac and humidifier.
