What are grow light hangers?
Grow lights need to be adjusted in height throughout the life of the plant. To provide ample lighting without burning the plants, grow lights need to be hung within the optimal range, which will depend on the type of lighting you employ.
There are a number of ways to hang grow lights, such as using chains, but the simplest method is using adjustable grow light hangers. These allow you to quickly adjust the height of your grow lights, ballasts, reflectors, and even carbon filters.
How high should lights be above your plants?
The distance you need between your plants and your grow lights will depend on two things. The first is what type of lights you have. LED grow lights burn brighter than MH or HPS lights, and thus you will need to give more space between them and your plants.
Another consideration is what stage the plants are in: vegging or flowering. During vegetative growth, plants will need a little more space from the lights. Once flowering begins, it is recommended to move lights slightly closer, to provide more intense light and generate heavier buds.
The best way to tell how high to hang your lights is by consulting the information from your manufacturer, or reading our guide on how to hang your grow lights! If you still have any questions, don't hesitate to call our experienced growing staff today at 888-815-9763.
