I have some yellow leaves on the bottom of my plant and I feel like I’ve been over watering but would like anyone’s opinion.

PH of water going into soil 6.8
Drainage only took from 1 pot(6.4)
Should I test every pot??


I also am curious about my lights and if they need to be dimmed down or if they are to bright or if that’s even a thing lol thanks fellas

your in soil?
so there’s nutes in it?
if you feel you’ve been watering to frequently than you probably are..
she doesn’t need much water when watering, like a shot glass or so..
all she needs is water when needed, light doesn’t have to be real close, temp, humidity, airflow.. and left alone..

Hi. I'd say wait it out and see. Seedlings do some weird shit sometimes, let her grow. Give her enough light and don't overwater and she should be fine. Not all seedlings are as strong as their siblings......"the stone that the builder man refused, shall be the head cornerstone"

One of those lights running at the top of the tent would help. 👍

Sorry not understanding. Just one light would be enough? Or raise one to the top of the tent is what you are saying?
Sorry, seemed simple.
too much light. Take one out for now Raise one up to the top in the middle.

There’s a learning curve with LED.
takes a while to watch and learn, when to dial up, dial down.
unless you have a proper light metre, best to follow manufacture recommendations.

seedlings don’t want the bright full sun.
that's why Babies cry when they bust out the womb.

I'm just curious, why are people saying to water in the low 6's for PH in soil? I always read to vary your water from 6-6.8, never staying at one PH.
