So I have a tent, and an AC light. Now this tent is only a bit wider than the light, especially if I use up some of it with an inline fan. It works out ok in one orientation, directly inline with the ducting holes on the tent, but it means I can not lower the light any more. In the future, I plan to use a series of increasingly shorter pot stands… but currently my canopy is like 32” away from the glass of the hood. So my question would be, what increments are safe to raise the plants by, but is still sizable enough to justify material spent on it?
My thoughts were 6” increments. Or maybe just try to slim up the venting by taking out the fan and using elbows rather than flexible duct but… I’m not real optimistic that’ll work. There is also the weird added element of, I’m running 600w in a 3x3. I’ve hand tested the light to maybe 18”-24” so I don’t know. At 32” the canopy has a temp of around 76*F. Moving closer might be a pipe dream for me, but I figured some answers might help someone else too.
