Hi guys, im sorry i couldn’t take pictures but ill try to see if it happens again and will take some pics…
The question is :
Could a very weak LED (108w Phlizon 600), placed at around 12" from the canopy do any damage?
What happened is that last night, at the beginning of the lights on, i saw some “sugar” on the smaller leaves around a couple buds, the one who showed more of that is by itself under the Phlizon 600, but this morning, at the end of lights on, i took a quick look at them before darkness, and i think most of the “sugar” seemed to be gone…
Im thinking that maybe the lights dissolved something or something like that…
Im a bit medicated, so it could be just a bit of paranoia😁
Id definitely try to keep her in that 20-24 inch range. A foot sounds dangerously close. But lemme get the light doc for ya @dbrn32 ur services are slightly needed (as usual )
According to the manual, at 12 inches is around 520 umol, in the center, so i thought it should be all right
Also on the manual is the ‘perfect height’. Those lights arent uber efficient and put off some good heat. Like put ur hand at the canopy (top leaves) if u feel warmth, its probably too close. I know u want to maximize intensity. But not at the expense of cooking her
It may have been that light intensity was just increased too quickly. I would raise it and leave for few days. If things are looking good after that lower a couple inches. Repeat that process until you get to desired height
If trichomes go from clear to cloudy, the “sparkle” disappears FYI. Could your plant be close to ready?
I run LED’s and have had them 3" from the canopy and they are pretty high efficacy lights. No issues.
Thanks @dbrn32, that’s probably it as i lowered and rearranged the lights and the plants just 2 days ago, but tonight I’ll raise them to minimum recommended distance again, as i have all 3 lights a couple inches lower than minimum recommended and see what happens
Im less than 3 weeks into flower, so it’s probably the lights being a bit closer than comfortable
