Hi @BennyBrass I was hoping someone with more experience could help, but as not as of yet, he goes.  MH, like other HID lights such as HPS, produce a lot of penetrating light and a lot of heat. I keep 18 inches distance between canopy top and lights with HID lights.  I check my top canopy leaf temperature does not go above 90C (veg, 80C flower).  I use a blue CFL during veg as they produce less heat and I can have the bulb cm's away from the top canopy.  You can place them under MH as soon as they have germinated.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
