Cultivate Tech fixtures emit massive amounts of light, but virtually no heat. Because of this the lighting fixtures can be hung very close to your plants. We recommended the hanging height above your plant canopy to be anywhere between 12-36”. Keep in mind, the higher a fixture is hung the greater the footprint but lesser the intensity so it is best to find the right hanging height that suits both the lighting needs of your plants and also the footprint you are looking to cover.
All Cultivate Tech fixtures have the ability to be controlled via mobile devices. These controls include the ability to change the light intensity. Our Original Growtech Series (Growtech160 and the Bud Booster) are controlled with the free Cultivate Tech App via Bluetooth. Our Growtech X Series fixtures are controlled with the optional Gateway/Controller system (sold separately) that works similarly but with WiFi.
Controlling the light intensity has several purposes, especially with higher output fixtures. Dialing the light intensity down can be useful when growing from seed so you are providing too much light to seedlings. Vertical farming, where getting the light as close to the plant canopy has possible, is another reason having the ability to dim your light fixture is useful.
