      • I'm no light expert but...Maybe it does, well probably it does . Definitely rather have too much light, than not enough. Quality and light spectrum have a LOT to do with it too. With these new LED's the sky is the limit.

          • I think light is a great subject, and a subject maybe still very misunderstood.  My confusion lies where, why is it in growing weed, it seems like the buds that don't get light get fluffy and larfy?  But in nature let's say avocados, I got avocados on my tree that are buried under branches and leaves at the bottom of the tree, getting no sun and they are huge?  I guess my question is to outdoor growers, does the plants grown outside act the same?  Or does the sunlight somehow penetrate and all the buds are dense?  Another question is why is it when you see a lot of commercial grows, the lights are like shit, looks like 5-6 ft clear of the canopy?  And I don't think they are using but like 1000 watt fixtures, yea grant it they have a lot but at the light distance increases doesn't the par rating decrease?  So how they run them lights so far away?  Just some things that I have pondered on.  Happy growing.

            • i think spectrum has alot to do with it moreso than intensity. Ive seen really great harvests with T5's and lower end LEDs like Mars and Viparspectar

              • Spectrum has everything to do with your grow you Need your red your white and your blue I feel and also your uv at the end it makes a difference on on your buds LED are the way to go I’ve used solar storm 1000 by California light works for the last 5 years and have been very happy and just purchased a solar system 550 i love it it’s as close to outdoor lights as your going to get

                • More light bigger budds  is the old saying  and is true if you have the light intensity dialed-in and good ventilation (fans, ect)
