How long should I keep my lights on?

For vegetative plants, keep your lights on an 18 hours on/6 hours off cycle. For flowering plants, switch your light timer to a 12 hours on/12 hours off cycle to stimulate flower production.

How much light do I need for my indoor garden?

Most flowering plants grow best under 20-30 watts of artificial lighting per square foot of plant canopy. It is important to be careful not to go overboard, as too much light can cause burning or bleaching of the leaves and flowers.

Example: 5’x5′ plant canopy = 25 sq. ft.
25 sq ft growing area * 20-30W = 500-750W

Recommended to use between 500-750W for a 5’x5′ plant canopy.
