Hey Starke, nice show! Big things here, that panel seems to be very potent. I agree better to keep an eye to eventually bleaching leaves.
Why you went with 5 plants instead of 6 for example? Legal number or a technical choice?

Welcome El Tigre. Went with five instead of six to make it a little easier to get to the underside of the two rear plants in case I put up a Scrog. The way my tent sits in my room I do not have access to the rear windows/inspection ports above the rear plants. Since I only grow for personal and family use, I'm not worried about the lost yield. Actually thought about only doing four, but then greed kicked in.

Pulled the girls out this morning to inspect for light burn and a little LST. Below are pics of each plant taken outside in natural sunlight. Plant #3 is in the center position in the tent and would be most subject to light burn. All opinions appreciated.

Plant 1:



Plant 2:



Plant 3:



Plant 4:



Plant 5:

Definitely light burn, IMHumbleO. Raise the light up higher or get some greenhouse film and a PAR meter. You can see the light burn in the corners of the other plants that are toward the center.

Even with my dimming unit, I am still having this issue myself.

Once I got them outside in natural light I thought that was what I might be seeing also. Big thanks for the heads up saitama. Any recommendations on a PAR meter?

I'm just using a cheap (by comparison) hydrofarm unit. If you get one, make sure it is around 2000 umols in afternoon sun. My first one was 2400umols in the sun and was defective. Good luck man this thing is a beast to tame. I ended up turning her up because I was losing density in my outer buds and I'm still getting bleaching.

Never expected to be bitching about an LED being too strong. It is one hell of a light.

ahah seems legit man!
I also agree, looks like the LEDs are bleaching a little your plants.
I've experienced in a small scale and I suggest to react quick if you can. For my limited experience CalMag could help.

Just put a tape on the light height and discovered the girls had grown to where there was only 26 inches between the tops and the lenses. Moved the light back up to 36 inches. Did a little more LST and also rotated the plants to different positions to try and help even out exposure to the center COBs. Hopefully this will alleviate some of the light burn.
