Bring your light down to a quarter the power and lower it to about 18 inches and you should hit between 400 and 600 ppfd depending on efficiency. Raise the light and increase intensity as the plant grows. Try to let the plant dry a fair bit before the next watering and get some humidity in there if you can, it’s not a huge deal but plant will be happier.

Do you have a light meter to measure the Lux and PAR at the top of the plants? I bet it is high. You can download to a IPhone or Android device. Right now you are guessing where that light should be and those plants don’t like it.

I wouldn’t be above 20000 Lux or 400 PAR with them at this point.
Hey just wanted to thank you for that advice. Plants are perking right up now!

Happy for you. The plants are looking much better. Do a little google research on required light intensity for the various stages of your plants growth. Careful not to over water or over fertilize as others have said. You’ll be at the finish line with some nice bud before you know it.

Or contact the manufacturer and ask them, I mean they made it. Unless they redirect you to one of their pre made PAR illustrations and give you actual distance and numbers, it’s worth a shot! I did they and got an ideal distance and dim setting and it has worked out pretty good for me so far

Yes that works too but a light meter in your hand and the plants before you are the better gauge to use when setting your light.
