This is interesting this see this leaving the lamp up top :g:  I've never done this way and always did a half metre under 600 in the past and now like it's tight in my box especially if I run at 400 but I did notice that with the halide lamp (never used halide in the past and only tubes for veg and sodium for bloom) and got used to it a bit, they absolutely benefit from being further away than sodiums.  Personally I put that down to the photon energy and colour temp of the lamp but I dunno enough about it all tbh :unsure: yeah really interesting this, but think I'm going to have to convert my box to run scrog moving forwards in order to keep the lamp off them enough...I feel some building and projects coming on lol 

I look forward to your trials, man. :yep:

@Golden Syrup -Brilliant thread mate :)

 

To be honest i never have looked into lighting until recently when in conversation with a re-connected friend he also was talking of this science behind the lighting and i thought...stone me G your late to the party ! lol 

 

90`s grower i am so always the 18" above the canopy jobby but after reading your explanations and diagrams it makes perfect sense as to why im not achieving the consistency i require or strive for throughout the canopy.

 

Again great stuff mate its keeping me on me toes :yinyang:

Thanks for the explanation. I run a 4x3 ft cupboard with 600w and I always have trouble with the plants furthest away from the light that don't yield as much. I will be raising my light as soon as I get home today! It was a grower years ago that told me to get my light as close as possible doh
