How far away should my CFL grow light be from my plants?

What is the appropriate distance without burning my plants while still maximizing the penetration?

CFL lights may, will, and do burn your plants if they are placed too close to your plants. So you want to position your grow light to penetrate as close as feasible, but far enough that it won’t burn them.

You should be able to place your CFL grow light 2–5 inches away from your plants, depending on the wattage.
