You know, halogen lights are the culpritz,,lol.. im certain, i didnt see those pics yesterday of your indoor setup and the halogen lights , I have used them in a pinch, when im short on hps bulbs or i need to raise the temps more in a room, but they are very hot lights and will accomplish several things when used, increase your electric bill threefold, lower humidity, raise temps and with the clear covers removed crisp up the edges of leaves quite nicely. think toaster oven with photons. and the 500 watts will quite literally catch things on fire. but they do kick out some light and sort of in the range of color your looking for at this stage of the game. use with caution and the way you have your plants arranged within the room matters, the plants that have been closest to the light for the longest time will withstand more than the others , simple conditioning, if you place the plants willy nilly and don't put them back in order you can toast a plant that normally would be farther away from the lights. Just a few lessons that i have learned through the years.

Toasters will emit photons too....black body radiation....the wavelength of the halogens may be a bit to the right(depending on graph, i start with high energy towards the y axis,,). anyhow.. in terms of heat, im fully aware, the shelter is heavily humidified....with temp gauges in 6 spots, low and high....and this is just for sup lighting , just to fill in the missing hours of light...so really as ive said maybe 1 hour in the morning, and maybe 30 min at night, before total blackness...
...i had posted originally because of the colour i was seeing, that in all honesty isnt represented that well in the photos i took... it looked like it couldve been a few things, almost...but nothing 100% conclusive, so i wasnt sure which way to lean, nutes, lights or heat or even possibly pests or all of em.......ive never had issues here in canada with those, but it still could happen....i thought id pop on a forum and see what my "peers" think....kinda like peer reviewing a science paper... sorry, currently studying physics and cosmology in Uni...
...anyways...i really appreciate the attention and response ive gotten here so soon...it has been really helpful...
thanks to everyone.....ill keep posting until harvest just to let you guys know.....at least itll be a bt more info out there for the next guy in my position whos experiencing something he cant really explain or has never even seen before....

So new growth not showing the same issue after raising light?
nope, not at all....so im cancelling out the nute problem i might have had....so the last check off the list is the lighting ....process of elimination ...the lights

Lights are pretty cheap right now. I can get the SE3000 from Spiderfarmer for $300 Cdn...whats that Usa??? $199....delivered and in Canada no tax charged......OR...I found an led light at a second hand shop Value Village and with my 30% senior discount $5 tax in.......Or do you like the light you have if you set it at the right distance? I spend to much time and effort to grow them, I kinda wanna give em what they like.....you know baby them. I can't spend a wad of cash on my equipment

...ive been happy with what ive been doing...i'd like to build and set up an actual grow hut....building zones where i live, and specific to my property and my 2 neighbours, are shit to build anything with more than 3 walls...im 1 of 3 houses that have lakefront property on my street, and because of that, these 3 lots are subject to very strict conditions for building...
...that being said, these halogens are only supplemental...not a primary source...literally just filling in the light gaps....
also i started this grow pretty late, if i had done what i normally have done and plant earlier, i wouldnt need to do sup lighting...at all ...so its not permanent, ive never seen it that way either...but im what they call a "professional crastinater".....i combined 2 words,, professional and procrastination, into a title such as professional crastinater....and when i say "i" i mean fat mike....
