Hey! thanks for the reply

What do you mean by bleached? 

Our temperature is at 20 C

This is our set up and as you can see the lights are 48 cm away from the canopy:

Are they too close?

@danizeap

Which SP is that?

You have in mind that even the smallest has more power then the TS1000 ?

Plants are like children - always surprising you.

They are SP 3000s 

Yes I am aware how powerful they are, our grow space is a bit large for just one or even two. So to fully cover our canopy we got 3.

Is it too much light? we did so much research and consulted with experts that did PAR tests for the lights and we decided this was the best choice 

Thanks James!

Pistils can get bleached by a light overload, and those are very high intensity lights, can you dim the lights at all, maybe 80%...however they dont look that bad compared to some

If you have done the par tests and you aren’t above about 850 on the tops, the light is probably ok. Personally I run the SP lights closer to 700 with good results. Burned pistils can also be caused by high EC feed/water, high humidity, high temps, etc. I’d lower the feed if it were my grow because I prefer to leave the plants slightly hungry. What do the EC in/out look like.
