    1 or 2 lights

    My son thinks that I should only have 1 light in the tent.
    It is a 2x4x5 tent with 2 - 240 actual watt lights and he thinks they should be raised more but I am in 5th week of flower for the back 2. So I had them around 18 inches for a while maybe a week or more. Any input would be helpful and if I only need on e for flower I can use the other in a 2x4x5 box I have made Thanks

    I stick with the two lights and keep them at the height the manufacturer recommends


      i agree bboy


        Keep them both and just adjust the height if you see bleaching you do not want that.

          Don't know what kind of led light you got, but you got 8sq.ft. they say you need 30-50watts a sq.ft.
          You say you got 480actual watts so you got 60watts a square ft. A little more than enough, if my ciphering is right, been along time since I done any ciphering ,plus I learnt how to cipher from JethroBodine, lol

            My father always used that term " ciphering" when helping with math. He was from Tennessee would be over 105 today if he were living.

Thanks for the input guys After this flowering ends in month I will throw in four plants I have Big Bud seeds now and if they ever come and germinate I will have white Rhino new to my grow being growing khalifa kush for 2 grows and they seemed small.
