Stems are hollow because that is how nutrients are fed to the plant. I've had plants that's looked like I could put a toothpick inside the stem. Just means they are healthy :)

Sorry guys, hollow stems are usually a sign of low boron ratio vs nitrogen. Maybe try fertigating one consistently with B at .5-1 ppm and one without then compare. And yes be ready for Ca uptake to increase (add some, but not from 'cal-mag' which is more CaNO3). A Ca+B foliar might work faster for remedial use.

Welp, might as well make lemonade out of lemons, hollow stems are by far my favorite joint filter/crutch.

Hollow stem is normal - in fact some folks use that "hollow" part to determine it plant is ready for harvest. The "hollow" part means that the plant has used all nutrients and that the plant is not up-taking nutrients any more. the larger the hollow in stalk the more mature it is, Generally the hollow part should be similar to what you have or 1/2 size of stalk. Many grower don't know about he "hollow stalk". When flushing one can "flick" the stalk and hear if it is hollow or not. If one harvest a plant with no hollow in stalk - you have harvested to early. Completely normal and interesting you picked up on this. So all ways check you stalks when you harvest and check hollow part of stalk. Remember there is a 14 day harvest window
