    Default Is this light ok for a PC grow?

    Hi everyone!

    Can anyone tell me, is the light suitable for a tiny grow space? 110w power draw.
    (See pics)

    Problem is, I can’t possibly get it further than 10 inches away from my plant and my plant is only a few inches tall right now, so when it’s bigger it will be super close

    I’m aware there are better lights out there but I got this one super cheap from a friend. It’s my first grow and I’m not too bothered about yield at the moment, just having fun growing!

    Thanks

    Unfortunately not, you need a good 12 inches, probably 15 to avoid bleaching and cannabis tends to stretch despite your best intentions.

    You will probably need a custom build using led strips so that the light is fairly diffuse.

    You can do it with CFL but heat will need a lot of consideration

    Ah sucks! I’ll have to do some research into led strips then! I’m clueless when it comes to that
