How many lumens?

I saw online somebody said 24" away at 150w for veg and 18" away for 300w. Now I have to adjust my light not to shock them as well. Im guessing the 15" away from light is now at 29,000 lumens (have to figure that out in lux) is to close, especially if im going to crank it up after a bit. Am I on the write path here?
Don't over analyze, it drives people nuts. Watch your plants and they will react to the light, if they show stress raise it or dim it. Lights get turned up as they get further into flower. Learn to read your plants, there is plenty of info out there with pics to show you what healthy looks like.

My autos are just on the small side for their age. Their not bad, just not like the pros. Im just trying to get the best results. How about this, I find out what the max lumens are, div that in half, raise my lamps to 24", start my lamp at 33,000 lumens and keep on going up until I get to that half point. Should I got up a couple thousand lumens a day? Or is that to quick. I will keep an eye on them like I always do. If I see a problem, just adjust

Did they also explain why the 300w light needed to be closer than the 150w?

How old is the plant again? and what light is it under now?

If you have the Kingled.. put both switches on and keep it around 18-20".

If you have the other 320w kingbright dim it half power and put at the same 18-20". or 3ft and full power.

Im using the kingbright. I just switched to that today, thats the problem. Would I be safe at 20" to put it half way, or would that be to quick of a jump.

I know that during the flowering stage the plant needs more power in order to produce flower. I know that spectrum matters as well, but you also need energy.
I flowered with blurples. The only thing cannabis needs to start flowering is a flowering light schedule. Depending on the light, is how that flower phase will turn out.

Shit lighting = shit harvests

I wouldn't even get the new one you mentioned. I have 2 blurples in my closet now... in a box.. not above plants. Recently just upgraded both of my tents to Spider Farmer lighting. Low cost & decent results from what I've seen posted online. Now I'm trying them out myself.

I have one 3 week old today thats 6 inches, and 3 week old thats 5.5 inches, another thats 2 weeks and 6 days that is 6 inches, and a 2 week and 3 day old that I didn't measure

I was looking at the spider farm, but I saw the kingbright is basically the same thing but cheaper and more power. My 600 watt kingled only produced an ounce for 2 plants, and the bud's were super see through . Its good stuff though, I cant complain. Its not the best looking, but probably around low 20%

Well let me tell you this.. and show you how I did with my Phlizon lights. Both "600w" but only pumping out 108w each. I had 2 of them in a 2x4 tent on one plant and harvested 3.43oz exact weight trimmed and chopped off branches before weigh in.

Don't get me wrong.. they work.. but I just wanna show you that they can flower without anything extra being added. Same 2x 108w.

1 plant was removed.. Kept the lights as is.. but made my plant stretch over to utilize the other light more.

Power in the tent never changed. Both switches on the entire grow.

Im not saying you can't, all im saying is kind of late now. I already got a kingbright and kingled. I was planning on using both during the flowering stage... I use the kingled for early veg since it works good. I screwed up at the beginning, couldn't figure out the sweet spot and lightly stretched my guys. They weren't badly stretched, but stretched none the less, so I switched to the kingled and that fixed the problem.

My plan is to use the kingled mabe the first 2-3 weeks. Switch to the kingbright after that, and then add the other when it flowers

I ended up putting the light 22" away. When I read the lumens I think it was around 40,000. So I just cranked it to around 26,000. I know that should work fine with experience from the kingled which I believe read 21,000. I hope this works good. Im just going to keep there if there is no problems until it flowers
