Light distance from cuttings, veg and flower

Hi Guys,

I have 20 blue cheese cuttings that I' am potting tomorrow but I' m unsure what distance to keep that lights at throughout the grow (newbie)

I intial thoughts are roughly 1 meter after potting the cuttings, then after a week moving it down to roughly 50cm for the rest of veg and flower. I will be using the 'back of the hand' test at this point as well ;)

What distance and for how long do you keep the lights from your plants from cuttings, during veg and flower?

Cheers

ps I' am using 4 x 600w lights!

are they in cool tubes or hoods with fan is so start at 18" good rule of thumb is stick your hand under for a min if it burns your hand or gets hot it be to hot for plants as well

Id probly suggest quite high at first (4/5 feet) until they get sum legs, and in my experience they dont like/need that much heat/light at such a young age....

After theyve doubled in size, i would lower them a tad to maybe 3/4 feet depending on how tall u actually want to take ur plants...

There is probly a lot more qualified/experienced people on here that could/would maybe tell u diff...

Key is, find what works for u, keep it simple, and when ur more experienced venture out of ur comfort zone

Stay green folks
