    Hi..I am currently growing with an LED light, to be exact I am growing with a Kind LED K300l. I was in the same boat as you at first. I started with the light height around 12 inches. I noticed some stress on my plant so I raised it even higher, around 18 - 20 inches. I had it this height until I started flowering. Once flowering begun I brought the light down back to around 12 inches, the plants didn't seem to stress-out and my temperatures remained stable. So in summary, 12 to 18 inches seems to be a good medium. However, this is just for my current light; your results may vary.

    I would be going for the Star light thats for sale on the forum. Not sure how many kelvins it is.

    But going by what you've said it should be fine at around 3.5/4ft?
    a


    Just measured mine. From ceiling to bed of table 4' 2" so if Star lighting are flat panels? Then yes. However with LED strip lighting, I don't believe they will suffice at that height? The reflection given off by the chrome baffle is very intense and in your eye.

Any industry that works with colour? Printing, Textiles Cosmetics act, view products under 6500° Kelvin (white light) this gives you a neutral light. The panels I fitted fit give this criteria. Five panels with starters cost me £110. If you don't have a suspended ceiling to drop them into? It's a simple job knocking up a narrow frame to support them.

Light is spread evenly, getting under the cushions. Can highly recommend. Playing at my club, is now like playing with the table illuminated by candle power.

    Geoff obviously does a lot of tables and as above says ideal distance is around 5ft

    Might have to look into other alternatives.

    I have also emailed Geoff about this and also what lighting he would recommend - awaiting response as yet

    Hi there. We have LED panels that I fitted in my local club.

    I'm not sure of the exact height from the table, but I will measure next time I am there (which will probably be tomorrow).

    Found the above post from Geoff

    Problem I have is room height is under 7 feet. Lets say floor to ceiling height is 6ft 6inches

    What issues would I face if the LED light is too close to the table?
