heatshields ?

hi all, just dropping a line to ask if any of you use the heatshield that is avialable from growell as i would like to get my 400w hps close as possible to my plants without burning them. my only concern is that it would block

out light from directly underneath the light and seeing as i grow in a wardrobe would just be focusing light on the sides of it . if anyone could help i would greatly appreaciate it :yep:

hi Mrchristian,

them heat shields are more for if your plants get to big for your room.............

you wont get any more light than a light hung at the right height.......

i wouldn't use one unless i really needed to..........

Its probably better to use an air cooled light if you want to get the light closer.

You can get some 'bleaching' in the buds right under the light though if you have the light too close. Or at least I have noticed it with mine (600w)
