I just received my Mars TS1000.
The owners manual says to keep it 24" from seedlings, but I have read and seen others with it nearly on top of them.
This is my current setup, intensity on 10.
Too close? Too intense?
TIA!

Thank you.
I was just informed on another forum that 20" is good also. Nice to see some continuity.
I'll be dropping them down now, and reducing power to 50%.

Next I'll be asking about re-potting them and nutes, both of which supplies I have on hand.

Do you have access to youtube.com?
If so you can find all kinds of good videos on all aspects of growing to give you a head start to know what you need to ask and what you can find out yourself, Exploration is half the fun, but we are here to help when possible.

Thank you @ROSTERMAN.
I have watched many vid's, and it seems the more I learn the less I know.
This is fun.
I'll add that since I put in the LED lamp yesterday, my plants are about 1/4" taller this morning :)
I still gotta figure out the watering though.
The cups these guys are in dry out every day here.
I am noticing that on 2 of my plants the first set of fan leaves are turning yellow...
