Q.Hanging LED And Fluorescent Fixtures Side By Side

Zone Elmoowd Park, NJ 07407 | Anonymous added on February 3, 2021 | Answered

I have 2 grow light fixtures each with 4 tubes. I’d like to know If I can hang them side by side. Here are the specs.
T5 Fluorescent: 6400K 54 watts 20000 lumen.
LED: 80 watts CCT(K) W:6500K R:660-680nm B:460-465nm
Optical properties than 7:2:1 Beam angle >120

If this is possible, can you tell me if the height from the the seedlings top is different for each fixture?

You have the newer fluorescent bulbs that put out less heat and can be placed close to the plants.

I don't know why you couldn't place them side by side. You can lower them as close as you need to for your plants' benefit.
