How to Hang an LED Grow Light

Serving clients worldwide

When configuring your indoor grow space, it’s important to properly hang your lighting system so that it is secure, easy to access, and positioned correctly in relation to your plants. A poor setup could reduce the productivity of your setup or even lead to hazardous accidents. That’s why at ESTtech, we’ve put a lot of care into creating lighting systems that are easy to set up in your grow space. To learn how to hang an LED grow light, watch our video for detailed visual instructions.


How far should LED grow lights be from plants?

Generally speaking, LED grow lights should be placed around 12-36 inches away from your plants. While this range can be a helpful starting point, remember that each plant species and setup is different. We recommend carefully experimenting with distance to determine what gives you the best results.

How do I know if my LED grow lights are the right distance from my plants?

Incorrectly placing your LED lights could jeopardize the health of your plants. To determine if your LED grow lights are the right distance from your plants, look for these signs:

Your light source might be too close if:

Scorched or bleached leaves
Uneven tan or brown spots
Frequently dry soil
Brittle vegetation
Uneven growth

Your light source might be too far if:
Leaves dropping excessively
Long and thin stems 
Stems “reaching” toward light
Uneven growth or failure to flower
Pale green or yellow coloration

How far apart should my grow lights be?

In most indoor grow setups, the LED lights should be placed approximately 4 feet away from one another to ensure all of your plants receive thorough and even coverage. That said, there is no set rule for how far apart your lights should be. Factors such as size, intensity, and space restrictions can all impact your lighting configuration.
