I don't have a reader but what you're suggesting is on the right track imo. I typically run ~30w/sq. ft. I ran one round on one end of the room with ~22w/sq. ft. one round. It took forever to finish compared to previous runs of the same clone, yielded really well but too long to finish. imo throwing more at them during the shorter cycles would be beneficial. May even shorten the finish further. Edit: Setup is primarily Tasty Cree 3590's, one 200w bar is Citizen 1212/90cri added more recently. Typically 14-18" above canopy @30w/sq. ft. in ~3.5x8' footprint. Initiators are 35w of 660nm, and 40w of 730nm. Currently running 11.5/12.5.
