LED lighting

Hello everyone,

I need a little advice. I'm growing four Reapers and 4 Chocolate Bhutlah peppers on an A frame grow table. I'm running two Hollandstar 1000w LED per four peppers. What is the consensus on distance from light to pepper? I'm at 22" currently without any curl, but I'm a little nervous of harming them by going lower. What does everyone think?

Re: LED lighting

LED's don't generate a lot of heat, go lower. 8 inches from the top of the leaves is a better distance.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
