Those panels look to be doing great for you. I have been using Mars Hydro lights for about 5 years and love them. I have several each of their original 300w and 600w panels and they kick ass. For the $$$ and results you look to be doing just fine with what you're using though. Will be interested to see how they hold up for you!
Time to start overindoor cats grow tent led

Very nice plants ! Two things that popped into my head while catching up...
One.... why ADD ferts ?
Two.... I had some trouble with flower drop on a hydro Reaper back in November. While I can't say scientifically what cured my problem, I can think of two major adjustments I made in the tent. The temperature inside the tent and the nitrogen in the nutes I was feeding. My plant was growing like crazy and dropping flowers until I made these two changes. Once I made the changes, the plant literally stopped growing upward, and started fruiting. Pollen flying everywhere !!!
But it ended up a sad story. Aphids ended up taking over the grow, and I had to terminate the project. Today I have a Jalapeno growing in that tent !!

One.... why ADD ferts ?
The potting mix ferts are only expected to last 3 months, and when I first started with it the run off ppm's where around 500, now they're down to 100. I'll probably start at half strength, and see how the plants respond. I ordered the cns17 bloom formula so it shouldn't over do the nitrogen. Been keeping the temp at 77f and the humity around 60%, and the plants seem to be happy.

Very nice so green makes me want to eat the leaves lol
I don't know how good they'd taste, but one of our cats liked them, that's the reason I had to start over. Lol.
I guess having the UV/ir mixed with blue and wideband red LEDs can work really well for peppers. There is just a tiny bit of green spectrum to control growth signaling combined with ir to prevent stretching. The UV is apparent in the young leaves appearing darker and oily/waxy until they get a little bigger.

I got fed up with the orange have not producing so I ripped them out to give the Thai's more room, and they are doing great, producing an average of twelve peppers per week. Out of the 20 plants I started indoors , I lost two completely due to strong winds, never did find the plants, lol. One has a broken stem and had to be staked, but its still holding on. The bells, jalapenos, and Thais are already producing pods, besides the fact that the jalapeños had pods on them already when they were still in the Styrofoam cups under the grow lights.
