    During flower, you can put the light above the plants 12~18'', as long as there is no bleaching, you can put the light closer.

    Yes. I've also heard someone say they were super excited to get their hands on "super rare albino weed".....imagine the laugh I had after that!

    Mars hydro lights are good for not bleaching your plants unless they are just about touching. I have 2 x 300w and a 900w and have had as little as a 4" gap between my plants and lights as I couldn't get them any higher and they turned out fine, just make sure you have fans on them as they still get warm and pay close attention to them as they still pull towards the lights. @biggie only twice have I had super rare albino weed on the tips of my plant and I can see why its rare, 'cos its not right good!

    I have a very limited vertical setup and I continually push the limits with my mars 300 and my galaxy 300. Ive been able to get within 4-6" from the plants to the light surface with no ill effect. I do have PC fans rigged up blowing across the surface of the lights though.
