The_Dude started grow question 3 years ago
I am using a 300 Watt LED light with a Veg and Bloom Function. Currently Light is 27" from soil surface and only on Veg setting. I am also using a LUX meter app (not sure how accurate they are. I am getting about 10 500 - 11 000 Lux at plant height. Is 11 000 a little bit too?

Hey there Dude! Yes that is a little high for the age of the plants. but it will be great for them once they get a little bigger until then. you may want to look into getting like 2 25watt CFL lights for the Seedling stage of life they work great for it! if you have the room it doesn't look like you do but i would also recommend looking into a 2ft T5 for the Seedling stage they work awesome but if you don't have the space the CFL;s will do the same. then once they have got out of the seedling stage pop the light you got going now back on and they will love it!:+1: Hope this helps Happy Growing!!

yes its a lot of lux blazin on the youngesters. think about a weker light for the first 21-25 dys... iam using a 2x25 watt led "pipe" for the little ones, very close around 10 cm . or iam using 100 watt in 35-40 cm, but best effects i get with the 2x25 watt. 3500 lux are enough for vegetation and the double amount for flowering
I hope you made plans for topping and LST because your growspace is very low, so the plantbetter stay small.
Do you care to let me know the brand of your lights? i cant believe the 11000 lux....sounds very much to a regular light normally they have 3500
