Finding the ideal hanging distance for LED grow lights is essential for your plants’ healthy growth. The leaves may receive too much light if the lights are too close, which could actually impede their growth. In this case, the light will burn the leaves, converting them from green to yellow from the top.
However, if the lights are placed too low, they won’t be able to spread out enough to cover your complete growth area, so you’ll need more lights. This can be expensive and not particularly cost-effective.
In order to ensure that the plants receive the optimal amount of light for healthy growth while keeping your costs under control, it’s crucial to strike the correct balance and discover that sweet spot when the lights are at the perfect distance from the plants.
