Whats got me totally hype is the fact that I'm getting more tops than I initially expected because all the smaller branches are getting direct exposure to the 1000 watts of light that I have over them. Like Tillys (Trainwreck) top left only got 8 Mains but shes gonna have like 13 tops from all the branches in the middle. And Courtney (Chemdawg) 3 Mains but has like 5 other branches that were low as hell that started to get the same stem density as the 3 Mains and started shooting up. and then Danni (Durban Poison) in the middle, I trained her 3 mains outside of the ring and shes got all these branches shooting up in the middle as well. Like I need to get my ass a scale. Can't wait to see how much weight I'll have.

Hey guys question I need to know if theyre done strentching because pistils are starting to come out the top of the 3 main plants and I distanced my light to about 35 inches away thinking they’ll still stretch more but if theyre done. I’ll lower it back to 20 inches away.

It really depends on the strain and the pheno of that particular strain or how homogeneous that strain has become threw breeding. You can have 3 plants of the same strain and one has no stretch and one kinda stretch and one that keeps growing right till the end. But when you notice that they have slowed down you can adjust your light or you can train them a bit to keep them at the same height and then adjust your light. But it really comes down to the strain

The babies are still growing. I've rearranged the plants, you'll see this upcoming friday the progress, that they'll have made. I put Danni and left Courtney in the back since their the two tallest ones so they can utilize the 1000 Watts more efficiently since it's at the top of the tent. Their both about 28" away from the light now. I'm planning on keeping the light where it is, I think they will be done stretching at the end of the week and hopefully be 20" away =]. I moved Tilly to the front and shes got all of the 600 Watts on her and she's loving it and Ashley is in the middle still stretching quite beautifully even though she's short, she's got the focus of both lights now so I'm going to love to see the improvement in the following days. I've lowered the 600 Watt light down quite a bit since Tilly's the shortest one compared to the other two but still 20" away. I really can't wait till week 2 is over and week 3 so I can see budlets form. Super excited. I've notice they are completely taking more water now because I was wondering why they were drooping a few days ago and appeared quite wrinkled which was really scary. But after a couple hours of watering, they perked right back up. They each take about 3 liters of water now instead of 1 every day. Before flowering, they were fine being watered every other day, but now they need to be watered every day with 3x as much water as I've been giving them so it's been a learning experience. Im glad I caught it early when the lights flipped on. God only knows if I wasn't around to take care of my babies 24/7, they'd probably be dead by now. But they are looking amazing, can't wait to post more photos this friday. =]

1600 Watts total. not sure about the wattage per square foot, but the companies Higrow LED the 1000 and 600 models.
The 1000w consumes 400w and the 600w consumes 120w, so total wattage is 520w actual (info from amazon.com). That's a really nice amount of juice to play with in that space!!!!
What size is the tent? Is it 4ft x 4ft floor area?

Well guys, not much longer till friday. I'll be snapping photos on friday for sure. Since I'll be defoliating one last time I'll take before and after pictures. The tallest plants are now only 18" away from the light, hoping they stop growing already because I really don't want to tie them down. Not sure if I see much of a difference except longer more prominent pistils. They're really just long as hell now. Waiting for the buds anxiously. Ashleys so short, I wonder if I'll get a decent yield out of her even though she has 4 tops, I'm hoping they'll be fat and dense. Just started the bloom nutes on them this past monday, no more grow nutes. So far they're getting Mammoth P and Bloom Nutes. Starting week 5 they will be getting those two plus Budxl so super excited for week 5 to come. Then on Week 6 and 7 is when they'll also get the boost nutes as well. Then on weeks 8 and 9, I will flush with Charlie's compost, Indonesian Bat Guano, and worm castings as a top dress soil. All organic =]

Agree it does look like calcium, it's possible there is calcium present that's locked out by a ph that is too low.
If the ph has dipped to low 6s or less then even if available in the medium, uptake of calcium and several other micros will be inhibited ("lock out") 🔒
If you've got a ph meter check the run off ph and ph of the liquids your giving ie ph in and ph out readings to see what's happening ;)
