Hey there. What height and percentage are you running your lights? I have an SF1000 and SF2000 over 3 plants in a 4x4. They just started 3rd week of flower (though I think they’ll stretch a good bit more. I had them at 20 inches and 85-90% and was just letting them stretch into the lights. But they’re getting wider and filling up the tent, so I raised the lights back to 20 inches above the canopy and bumped them up to 100% expecting the plants to stretch another 5 inches when all is said and done. Just wondering if that sounds about right or way off? Most of the info out there is on the less powerful smaller spectrum leds. Cheers.

yeah, you're in a good spot. they say 12-18 inches for flowering. i've got the sf4000 and had it hanging around 12-14 inches and wound up with a few burnt leaves/heat stress. looked at the manufacturer's suggestion and am now following that, but on the farther end at closer 18 inches. hope that helps

Sounds about right.
similar to my setup, plants only 6 -8 inches from sf 1000 and 2000 now. At 100% day 24 flower. I run a fan above, and below lights to keep leaf temps in control tho.
