When looking at your pictures is clearly shows the out side area of plants are actually taller and as you get into middle of room or right under the fixture there is a considerable different's in growth ????
have you considered possibly placing some Gavita's inbetween them ?? That is what your missing from looking at comparisons there fixtures are the same , bulbs are identical but performance Gavita clearly kills it ??
Just a thought nice grow other wise
I heard some things similar about them being used as supplemental lighting. but along the lines that they increase an decrease to hit a certain lumen in the greenhouse. if the sun is full they will be auto adjusted to dim an hit that certain lumen or whatever. On a cloudy day they may burning brighter to hit that lumen. or on in the beginning or end of day to extend the day. Truth is I dont know fully actually. either way they are bright as hell. Some are still on 600, others are on 825w
as for the centers being taller. The pic is deceiving, there are completely different genetics within a 6x6 foot print. the Sour bubble are tall & chacos soud grapes (sd x bx) . the stars are more bushy. i think thats what your seeing.
everything was not the same height or age in veg when they went in. there are 5or 6 different genetics throught out the room. Sour bubble, star dawg corey, 3 different lavenders, Karmas sdxbiker an there maybe a sfv in there and chacos sour d bx. some pics are deceiving, especially the panoramic one.
an johnny blaze, they are 70% happy on some, an others are like 90%. Still getting yellowing on older fans, even at upper canopy levels. the sour bubbles are on point. the stars are hungry an the lavenders an karmas sd x biker
