    So 18-24 inches would be fine even though there still kinda young??

    really, I have had mine within 6 inches of my plants, but they were also massively air-cooled, and they would not burn... without a sealed hood and air-cooling, I would say 12-18 inches from the plant..

    again, this related to heat, so if they are even at 18 inches, and they start to burn, pull those fuckers back... 1000w is a biiiig light though, so you might need to keep it higher, such as how mygirls stated..

    yeah.. I got a buddy that runs 4 1000w, all sealed hoods and air-cooled with a huge turbine looking fan... very nice setup... his buds hit the shields on the lights all the time... no problem.. no burns... its all in your setup, though
