I guess I should add that I'm growing with 6 QB648 in a 5x5 to test and so far EVERYTHING has been flowering very very fast....even large plants that usually pull 1lb are pretty small and flowering under 30 days..... My setup is similar to these. https://horticulturelightinggroup.com/products/hlg-scorpion-diablo

I stated to use them so i could run the lights very close and keep the power down while still getting a very high DLI.....I'll do one more run with stuff I have logs of.... sooooo your results might be better than mine above.

I switched from a SpiderFarmer 2000 to AutoCobs at flower. Like yours, I am pretty sure my abused plants are now finished two weeks earlier than anticipated (I plan for ten weeks above ground as a general rule of thumb for myself). Since I do not have an output adjustment on my setup, would you adjust for this increase in DLI by going from 18/6 to 16/8?

Being autos you can keep your lights on 24/7 if you want. You can buy a cheap camera light meter to get a rough idea of DLI if you don't want to spend the $700 on a pro style meter like im using. In my case these full spectrum LEDs aren't optimal for VEG IMOP. I keep grow tiny plants when i was growing monsters before them. I might switch to some HORTILUX BLUE Metal Halides, turn down the power and see how close i can run them in VEG....or just go back to platinum LED burple lights....which I've already given away to a bush grower here in Alaska. I usually run very low power (2amps) total for my tent. These HLG leds everyone raves about just aren't performing like previous lights. Size is smaller and quality isn't any better. If I had the room id just add a few more plants to make up for the loss but i'm out of floor space.

Thanks for the light meter tip! This I should do.
There’s never enough floor space for any one of my hobbies, let alone all of them at the same time... lol

Are you 100% sure it's the lights? I have 2 350Rs (same borads right?) in my 5x5 tent (2 less than you) and I get pleanty of stretch/branching on some of Rocbudinc plants and my PRolex looks damn near the same except green and 4-5 weeks behind that. But I had another Prolex a couple months ago...same thing. Not any of the automix (3 so far) or Passion Punch. Those grew out ok. Now I have a God's Breath and a auto Blueberry Slushy so we'll see if that pattern shows on those but none of my Meph/Fastbuds or Night Owl have that single stick growth style under these lights FWIW.

Its the only change I made to the environment. You're correct , the 350R seems to have 2 648 boards.
I tried getting them close as well and pushing the intensity and most of my autos turned away from the light. I raised them back up to the top of my tent started backing it to under 200 ppfd (admittedly using a phone app) and they seemed happy. I wonder if PR just has a midget pheno. Were all your other plants the same?

Purple Rolex - Same general shape, 1 wasn't purple.
Looking back Roc-it Fuel grow mostly the same and looked the same.
Purple Moon Rocs on the other hand has lots of branches. All Moon Rocs look different but the general structure is the same so far.
I don't usually train plants because I like to see normal growth first. In the old days it was out with the needy.
I personally like SPEAR shaped plants. Super easy to handle and harvest. 21grams per plant though isn't ideal IMOP.

Please everyone post your Purple Rolex pics. Thanks.
