You can double the dosing. But you might not want the plants to grow so
Good thing you lower the lighting. That is the better way to slow plant
growth down along with exchanging species that do not grow so cotten
picking fast.
I think you now see that plants CAN GROW LIKE MAD without high light if you
feed them well.

This cost less also(initial cost and electric and bulb replacements etc).
