That doesn't really work with LEDs. That is a trick for mh and hps. If I did that my plants would fry to a crisp under my quantum boards. I have LEDs I can get the plants 1/2" from and others that have to be 12-16" away. Not a one size fits all situation.

Never thought of that.
Thanks !!

Manufacturer recommendation is usually rather close but varies, or find it by moving it slightly until you see the plant not liking it and move up some from there. And still is a "ballpark" kind of number as it will vary slightly on the Strain, so in example 15" might be perfect one grow and a different Strain it will burn/bleach the tops at that height.

Hi all,

Have seen a few differing posts so wondered if anyone had a preference for distance between LED and flowering plants?

Hey GROWMIE ..

IVE always kept them 18" from tops but depending on light quantity and strength Play it by ear .... read your plants they will usually let you know if there happy or not
