I have an issue I’ve never dealt with before. Maybe it’s not an issue. Not sure. It seems like the leaves that are directly under my light are getting bleached.
In this pic it’s two different plants - one Sour D, one Maui Wowie. The lighter green leaves are from straight under the light, the darker green are from the back side of the plant that’s not straight under the lamp.
The light is a 1000w Double Ended HPS from Yield Labs. It has a variable setting, I run it at 100%. Tops of the plants are probably 12-14” from the light. Using the back of the hand test I’m just fine at that height.
So is this an issue I should be concerned about? If I remove the ratchets and shorten the light hangers I can gain a few more inches. I’m basically 3 weeks into 12/12 and the stretch has all but finished.
