Hi everyone.. I have never flowered with an HPS cooltube and am getting ready to do it.. How far should I keep the cooltube from the canopy of my plants so as not to burn them? Thanks Hero

Put your hand below the lamp. When you can have your hand below the lamp more than 10 seconds without feeling too much hot is good.

The cooltube is good because you can have your plants really close to the light. The only problem is the dispersal of light that isn't that good.

Good luck :aok:
