    I've seen a lot of plants do that, they always turned out fine. I figure its just reaching up to the light, usually my strongest plants.

    At least they aren't drooping down lol

    Interesting... I've seen my plants do that somewhat, but not that many leaves at once... I'm sure it's fine - as mentioned, it looks to me like it's just reaching towards the light(s). With the cfls, you could even have them a little closer than 4 inches (if that's possible with your setup) due to the low heat given off by those lights... i'd say 2-3 inches away for maximum light...just a suggestion.

    It looks very healthy and strong!

    Here's a pic from my last grow - my bluecheese plant had a similar leaf-issue..

    I think it's too far away as well. Move them to about 2'' and see if that helps any... Also, the humidity may be a bit much. I know higher humidity tend to make them want to "reach" for the light.

    I've seen them do that when you have high heat and really bright lights. It looks like they're crack addicts trying to rwch for more juice.

    It's called "Praying for Magnesium".

    Willing to bet your plants are deficient in Mg.

    Used to happen to grows with Spice of Life strains all the time as they are very Mg hungry. Heat can also do this sometimes as well, check your temps.
