It shows. Faster to flower set and harder stacking than my other leds. My other commercial popular brand led I like to put my old hps on angled from the side for a few hours end of day for the first couple weeks because it is slow to start. Not needed here with this mars hydro.
That makes it excellent as a veg flower combo. This one can do it all at a high level and a great price.
I'm keeping mine about 24 inches away.
I can check how long the ballast cords are but to be honest these do not get very hot at all! At dimmer settings they are warm to the touch. At max you can hold your hand on them for awhile.
I have a much bigger space but this light would do a 3x3 or 4x4 if you wanted more room to work with very little cooling or none and also ventilation will mainly be for air exchange not temp control.
Also when I switched to leds I found I needed more heat ha. Easy light to keep a space at optimal temps without a lot of effort or headache.
My veg went great, flower looking great too!
I'd like to see an old heath Robinson style tree grow with a horizontal overhead and a couple of these vertical on the sides ha.
