    Hello, you are using the metal stand legs right? Not hanging correct? It's a 200w light so you probably need to have good plant density.

    It will help if you have the PAR readings at different height with the reduce intensity. Another option is reduce the photo period to 6-7 hours. But that also depends on plant density with types of plants that you have.
