Q: How close should my light be to the top of my plant canopy?
A: We recommended hanging height above our plants is 18”-24” (Aurora 320/630) &
30”-34” (Aurora 630 plus/1050 Plus). At least we recommended that the light not be set closer than
Q: Can I transfer plants from HPS or Fluorescents straight to
my new PROBUDS LED?
A: Yes, you can, but it will take a few days for your plants to adjust to the
new light. Space permitting, to minimize the adjustment period, set light
height higher than recommended, gradually lowering over 3-4 days until
your plants are used to the new light.
Q: How can I find my light’s sweet spot in terms of hanging
height above the canopy?
A: Space permitting, we recommended starting with the light at 36” for the first
week. After this initial break in period, the light can be lowered down, 6” at a
time, until you reach the recommended height. If any discoloration or
twisting happens on the leaves, please raise the light back up 6”. This should be
the height you maintain through the whole plant’s life cycle.
Q: Some of the new leaves on my plant seem to be twisting or
appear to be bleached. What’s growing on?
A: This could be your lights are too close to the plants. Try
moving the light up about 6”-12”.
Q: The footprint of my light does not look as big as the
advertised footprint on the website.
A: Our advertised footprints are achieved only when the light is hung from
our recommended hanging heights. The closer the light is to the canopy, the
smaller the footprint will be. Our stated footprint sizes are for average light
use plants. If growing high light use plants, the effective footprint will be
Q: Can your lights run on 240v?
A: Yes. PROBUDS LED lights can run on voltages ranging from 100v all the
way up to 277v.
Q: Should I be wearing protective glasses?
A: We recommend that people use protective eyewear in any
indoor gardening room. HPS, MH, and LED all emit huge amounts of light,
and just like the sun, can be hard on your eyes.
Q: I’ve heard LEDs require slightly higher room temps, is this
A: Yes, the surface temperatures on leaves under LED lights can be 10-15
degrees cooler than compared to HPS. This can cause transpiration rates
and metabolic processes in the leaf to slow down. Raising ambient room
temperatures up to 82-90 degrees will allow the plant to thrive in a perfect
Q: Can I still use CO2 in my room with my Probuds LED?
A: Yes! One of the greatest benefits of higher room temps when
growing with LEDs is that the plants ability to assimilate CO2 greatly
increases when temps are raised to 82-90 degrees.
