A few things you can try doing here to speed up the new growth so it catches up quicker to whats already pre existing . You can lower the lights by a little bit as well as do some LST or HST the reason I say this is because you will get more light exposure to the new grow/tops that are trying to form under your big thick canopy ! Another thing you can try is to trim away all the lower big big fan leaves , they are here for nothing at this point and drawing energy away from the new growth/tops that are trying to form . If you choose this method i would advise to take a bit off then wait 4-5 days to see how the plant reacts and then repeat this process . The plant will do 3 things for you with that method firstly being shaped how you want her to be shaped , allowing more light to reach the new growth/tops as well as promoting new growth and tops . It will do that because it thinks its getting grazed by an animal so it kicks itself into overdrive in order to make up for what it has lost . I hope you find this information useful -Happy Growing!

Hey red, so i did a strawberry cough this year too and her leaves were definitely the more long fingered skinny leaves. I see the additional light added, thats some seriously good strong wide coverage they must get, did you notice a shift with adding more light? If so you could remove until a little further on, or possibly raise the light slightly, maybe up to 18 inches. I know checking the manufacturer's suggestions are always helpful, just to make sure were in the good zone.
Happy growing, i cant wait to see the end of these strawberries. :heart::strawberry::v:

3000 Watt is alot that "pretzels" on your Girls. In this case it could not be lack of light . Are you sure of needing so much Light=? i will follow up to see how it is going on. If your Plants begin to Dwarf and not stretching a lot and growing very dense you know its to much light/ to near to the plants

Hello ! Strawberry Cough is a cross between Strawberry Fields and old-school staple Haze :point_right: thin leaves could be a sativa trait. I hope it will help you :grin::+1:

hey there RedDirt, it's pretty normal to have the new growth being lighter and thinner, simply because it's newer and takes time to reach darker and broader mature levels. Other times if you have small pots the plants take up the pot and start showing pre flowers because they've reached the edges of the pot. If you can transplant them and give them more room you can probably veg them much longer if you want. If not those new growths might turn into flower nodes once you flip to 12/12 and stretch into colas... Put some pictures up just be sure though ! hope this helps ! dassit! :rocket:
