hey there looks like your lights are already too far away, you want to get them in there around 12 inches away. depends on their PAR rate, but basically penetration for LED lights is exponential that means that 2 inches closer is 4 times stronger. Does that make sense ? so why are your grapefruit stocky? probably either genetics or simply they've not been getting enough light since your lights are too far. You'll probably get more stretch this week as the plants mature, some stretch is good because more space for buds right? too much stretch and you'll run into all sorts of issues... just keep getting the lights as close as they go you'll see a good improvement on the growth. Hope this helps :rocket:

I dont agree to Bulbi, If you are having a good 600 W LED your Distance is not to far away. The Girls should have around 1cm distance between the Nodes and later more than this. I cant see how the Distance of the Nodes from GF2 and GF3 are. In my opinion they can have more Distance. But i see no big problem at the MOment. If the Nodes are to near You can rise the Light
