    Default Phragenstein var flavum ?

    The side branches are so long now that the flowers are only 12" away from the 400w HPS light.The colour is certainly a lot lighter than the normal flowers.

    The top flowers have still got plenty of colour so the light must be bleaching the colour.Tried seeing how much light it was getting but it is more than my light meter can read.The flowers on the side branches don,t last as long as the top flowers as well , the top flowers are over 3 feet higher than the side branches as the spike is actually growing along the ceiling
