Application notes

Hanging declined like shown in the picture if you are  working in a tent. If more than 2 lamps are installed,  hang the outer lamps declined.
This supports diffuse lighting inside your tent.

General tips

Changing from HPS to LED

  • Due to the missing heat radiation, compared with HPS,  less water is vaporizing. Therefore the relative humidity does not increase so rapidly and less watering is required. You will need around 25% less nutrient solution.
  • You may notice that the plant develops faster (depends on strain). In this case  P/K boosting can be done earlier.
  • As the spectrum has a big portion of red light, stigmas may look more brown as  they are. That should not be you guide to determine the harvest date. We would suggest to have a look at the trichomes.
  • As the LEDs have less active radiant heat you can grow at higher ambient temperatures in comparison to HPS.
  • Recommended ambient temperature 24-27 C°
  • For the best results check the VPD (Vapour pressure deficit)

Effect of different light intensities

Etiolation long internodes

Situation

  • plant grows to big
  • too long internods

Solution

  • increase light intensity
  • decrease the distance between the lamp and the canopy
  • use more lamps
internodes

extremely short internodes

Situation

  • the Plant is growing too short
  • Bleeching
  • Light-Burn
  • strange Morphology (weired looking plant)

Solution

  • decrease light intensity
  • increase the distance between the lamp and the canopy
  • use les lamps
bleeching
