Cultivate Tech fixtures emit massive amounts of light, but virtually no heat. Because of this the lighting fixtures can be relatively close to your plants. We recommended the hanging height above your plants to be right around 30-36”. Some strains do tolerate closer light sources, but we don’t recommend hanging the fixtures any closer than 24”.
If you are used to using HPS lights, the heat generated from that source is also heating the room a great deal (often times too much, damaging the plants and requiring cooling units to help lower temperatures).
The Bud Boosters are designed to do just as the name implies, boost your overall yield. They have benefits in both the vegetative and flowering stages of your plant and are designed to be placed underneath or to the sides of your plant.
