over watered and over feed with some def showing up in leaves in the middle. The def could be Calcium related but need better pictures to help.

pro mix moisture control potting mix temps stay between 69 to 83 when it is 83 it isnt there long it stays around 76 to 79 most the time
What are you feeding ? And how often? Ph in ph out? Ppm of runoff ? Looks to me like a cal issue but prolly too much of something else creating a uptake issue - and just foff red the record underwatering symptoms are almost identical to overwatering. Anthem has got the knowledge you just need to give more info- again for the record most problems come from watering/feeding habits

Yes 100% at 12" is to much. Make sure the plant are getting g good airflow through them also.

Set at about 45k and see how they respond. I would suggest as high as 64k but for that you need to have everything dialed in or you will get issues.

To calibrate your meter app, go outside on a clear day with full sun at it's highest point of the day. Measure the light. For me it was 94,000 lux.
So, I know never to exceed that number. Ideally, I want about half of that at the top of my plants. The better fine tuned my system is, the higher I can go. 75% is pretty much the practical limit. This is based on my research and that of Dr. Bruce Bugbee.
Take the same measurement every month and you will have the annual light curve for your area and you can mimic it at a lower level.
