Cut at the net... hope for the best. Probably should have done this when they grew 4 inches of that 4 foot stretch.

Good luck

Google "super cropping". You can still bend those branches over ever so gently and super cropping is a technique used in early to mid flower to keep those unruly plants in check. Its basically pinching the stems gently until they become pliable and bend. Then bend everything over giving you the vertical space you need to finish flowering. Pretty cool how the plants recover and mend the pinched branches. I've noticed over the years certain strains really take to super cropping and yield even more when it is done correctly. Others tend to get stunted and don't yield as well. Guess its just a crap shoot. At this point you don't have much of a choice. Do whatever it takes to lower that canopy and make it even as possible. Good luck!

I'm going to buy another tent and give it a shot

This happened to me on my first grow. Glad I had extra money laying around. But I cut the bottom off my tent and raised the whole tent frame and put on five gallon buckets so it basically put my plants at ground level and gave me an extra 18”. So cost me four five gallon buckets and my tent. Needless to say I have two tents now and learned to top
 
What kind of lights are those
There just some led strip lights that were left over from a job. I built the little rack and attached the light and put a mean well driver on e

If they've started flowering the only thing you can do is raise the lights which you probably can't do, bend the plants over and tie them down, or supercrop. Supercropping would be your best option. Go through and pinch and bend all those tops.

Good luck.
