LED’s will cook a plant if too close. 7” is close. I’d back off to about 24”. If you don’t have a light meter you can down load one to your phone. You want about 5,000 lux at this point. The box for your light states it is rated at 25,000. Raising the light will lower the lux at leaf height. Those leaves will not recover. Watch new growth for signs of recovery. Good luck.

I’m not familiar with that app. I use Photone which allows the user to select the light source e.g LED, HID, etc.

Those reading in your pic can’t be right.

The 25,000 is hours of life for the light
The lux within the light is 1200. Will download now

What type of soil are you using? Looks really dense and compact.

My eyes aren’t that good, sorry. If it’s a 1200 max lux led that won’t be enough light. But those leafs look fried. What is the medium they are in and what is your watering habits?

Same with the new app they read about the same. Someone recommended miracle gro seed starting potting mix as to watering I’ve just been making sure the soil doesn’t get dry so keeping it moist basically every 3 hours. Lol I probably messed up so bad… what about keeping a light schedule should I be doing that now these plants were put in about 6 days ago so they’re 6 days old

I’ve heard MG is super hot, could be burning them up...mixed with the mud from outside I’m sure it’s not a good combination and I’d bet that’s where your problem is.

Also, light can be on 24hrs or 18/6 on/off if you prefer. I did 18/6. Then when ready to flower you put them under 12/12.

So how can I fix that I was looking to see if there way a way to rinse out the stuff from outside off the roots before putting into something new especially now before the new tent or should I just start from scratch

Hmm...Maybe you can, but it wouldn’t be worth it to me. I’d just start from scratch since they’re only a few days old and getting burnt up.

If you have other suggestions please lmk I have two more seeds to germinate

1. Coco coir, but then you are going to need to get a line of liquid nutrients or dry amendments, but that defeats the purpose of coco growth.

2. Easier learning curve, fox farm ocean forest soil, will still need some nutrients after a few weeks.
