Leaf offset

If leaf offset is -5f does that mean my leaf surface temp is also -5f. Or does the off set work differently as in a leaf offset of -5f Wud calculate to a leaf surface temp of + 5 f. I ask cuz when I check my canopy leaf temps and my ambient the leaf temps is lower usually. Cuz I hear hps creates radiant heat meaning leaf surface temp will be warmer and with led lights cuz heat goes up that leaf surface temp will be cooler then ambient. So when I set my off set Iam at a +5f. When I think I shut be opposite. Not sure tho

Hi Justin, your leaf temperature offset would be +5. It depends on a lot of factors, perhaps your LED lights have a significant amount of infrared in their spectrum?
