Distance recommendations for these LEDs

by CpKid » Sat Apr 13, 2019 8:11 pm

I'm sorry if this question has already been repeated, but does anyone have any experience with these? I'm thinking about using them for the usual cps, nepenthes, drosera etc. Also, how far from the plants should I keep them? Thanks in advance!

I was looking it them too but still haven't decided. They don't have a par rating or any information on how much light they actually supply. If you do decide to get them and you don't have a meter best suggestion is to start about medium height and raise or lower based on your plants reaction.

Thanks! My grandmother got them for me, I'll probably just experiment with a few distances for a while.

I'd start at 6 inches above the plant.

Thanks, I guess I just didn't look at that too hard...anyhow they seem to be working well for my nepenthes and heliamphora, my only complaint would be that it's hard to see how wet/dry the soil of the plants are.
