 I always figured if nothing else, our "debates" would trigger others to do some research.

If for no other reason than to see which of us was right,  lol

Not saying you should.

Already gave my opinion, 50% and go from there.

CPW (RIP) could've told ya  "It's easy to torch a harvest when rushing with a new light."

Idk about LEDs, but HPS was less efficient, at less than 100%.

Been at it so long, I had to re-wire my first grow light from a parking lot floodlight.  lol

Hell, we didn't even have the internet, so you made do with local stuff.

I'm a lazy old fart, so once I'm in veg, I set my lights as high as I can, and turn them all the way up.

That way, as the plants grow and need more intensity, they're getting closer to the light. And thus getting the more intense light.

 May not be "optimum", but it works well, and it takes a lot of worry out of my lighting.

700 watts, in a tent??  WOW

I'd hike the lights up, and put your light at 50%, for now. That's where I'd start, and adjust power (not height) from there.

But that's just me, and like I said, Ima lazy old fart.  lol

When I switched to LEDs, I took down a 2000 watt hps setup, cooltubes, fan, ducting.

Now it's all in a closet. lol  My wife wants me to sell it, but it's kinda like an old friend.

I hate to part with it, even tho I'll never use it again.

LEDs definitely cleaned up the top half of my grow room.  

Check your flower calyxes. They usually give the most accurate "reading" for trichs.

5% amber, the rest milky, is about as far as you want them to go.

Personally, I quit using Grow altogether.

I give 1 tsp micro, and 1 of flower in veg, and double the flower, during flower.

Grow provides N only. You still need micronutes during flower.

But, that's just me.

SHE loved it. Me, being the one to work on it, not so much.  lol

Now she gets to drive my beater Silverado.

She's fine. Seatbelt left her with bruised boobs, but other than that...

Nobody got hurt, so I considered it a good day.
