For sps I turn the whites down to 50-60% and over a week and a half to two weeks bring it back up to 100% usually up it by 10% every 2-3 days. I always leave my blues at 100%. For softies I don't turn down my lights unless they start to look bad or loose color. And lps I turn down to 50% for a couple days then 75% for a couple days then 100% (as long as they are coming along well) it changes based on what kind of lighting the system they came out of had. Hope this helps

Yea well i dropped my lights from 100 to 40/50 and i think it may have caused tissue recession in some lps!
I dont know why i did it. Always trying to improve it and sometimes it bites me on the bum i suppose!

I know! Its a nightmare int it! But only way to learn i suppose!
I am also way too impatient for this hobby. I turned those lights down to 40% in 24hours which was probably a bit silly looking at it now!

Lights sound a little too high to me.
