    Hello, I have a 3x3 tent and 400w HID.

    I want to downsize to a 2x2 tent with a mars 2 400w. I purchased a 24" x 24" x 48" tent.

    I'm concerned that I won't have enough height to keep this light from burning my plants.

    My goal is to just grow 1 plant at a time. Either an auto or a well trained photo.

    Is 48 inches of clearance going to be sufficient? I'd feel better with 60 inches I think. Figure the grown plant takes 30 inches of height.


    Please give me your thoughts.

    Hi Sunny, we often recommend the hanging distance is:
    seedling: 18' above the plants,
    veg: 15'-18' above the plants,
    flower: 10'-15' above the plants,
    so if your tent height is 48" that should be OK with the Mars II 400
