    I wanted to know what is safe distance from my light for plant to not burn it.
    It would be stupid burning own plant to test my theory out so I thought of cheap substitute.
    And came up with conclusion: easiest way is using common plant and most common is grass, and it loves light.
    I will start test today and will try to see if grass will burn within 6h of my little girl "night time".
    What you people think of this idea?

    Please try & post the results. I currently use 4 LED's for side lighting (24 Watts each) + a 600 Watt Tube Grow light. I put my LED's about 16" - 18" away from the plants & ended up with 2- plants getting 1 burnt leave on each. My 1st grow so still trying to figure all this out too. So....you have a good starting point as 18" is still too close.
