    More light doesnt mean better plants. They can only handle so much .

    Ideally a 600w light covers a 4x4 area at a height of about 2 to 3 feet higher than your cannopy .

    People make new accounts and fuckaround . You wouldnt be the first.

    Get some pics if you expect people to help.

    And convert whatever measuring system your using to inches and feet please.

    If they bump they will probably shatter.

    Youll get way better effiency if you spread them 4 feet apart

    Why arent the reflectors dimpled ?
    Were you getting hotspots?

    hi man,its an old shade i got 10years ago haha so i didnt really know about dimpled shades etc,i have some,these i just used to test this out,yes i did notice just then sum curling but i assumed it was from the bad cuts i got given but now im thinking theyre from hotspots,i am baclk to one now,the temps have come down alot to,what do you think about the whole two light thing,im really not sure and would like to do a side by side next to a normal light,no one really knows who i have talked to if its good or bad so i thought id have better luck on here

    I think its a real waste of time buddy.

    Youll get more than enough light with just one .

    Spread them out 4 feet and youll have way bettrr spread of light more planting area and less burning

    Yeah i think the only practical application might be to light one 10 ft tall bushy sativa plant If you had a 14 ft cieling .

    And still i think most people would say go buy a 1000w de gavita

    Man what kind of grow space are you in ?

    You know these big lights make alot of heat right? And they need a good 2- 3 feet of space between the light and plant tops
