Hey guys and gals. I am trying to see if my girl is sick, cold, or just hungry. She’s in Happy Frog and have fed half strength nutes the last two feedings. My next water will have the nutes kicked up a notch. She was just watered two days ago to 10% runoff. It has been down to freezing temps here. Tent is in a metal shed. I have a heater in the tent that runs two separate heat cycles during the night. What do y’all think is going on here?

Looks like cold to me. A heated seedling mat and a towel or something wrapped around the pot for insulation might help. I've also seen people use aquarium heater tube in their pot.

You would be best off getting a small sealed oil heater and a thermostat.

I’ll look for a heating mat I hadn’t thought about that. I have the pot lifted off the ground sitting on packing styrofoam. This is the heater I have in it from Amazon. It runs 2 cycles: 1 for 3.5 hrs and 1 for 2.5 hrs. Should I just keep the heater running all night?

Problem with forced air heating is it drys things out. The heated mat may be enough, if not increase the heater on hours. Good luck 👍

Mat ordered and will be here Thursday. I noticed it has been drying out the air a bit. I’ll have to tinker with everything and see how she does. Once she heals I need to start the LST before flower time. Thanks for your help!

Looks like a combo of cold and underwatering perhaps. As was said, heaters can dry things out quicker. It's possible that your heater is drying the soil out. As far as leaving it on all night, I'd buy a Govee thermometer/humidistat for $13 on Amazon. It hooks up to an app on your phone and will show you a readout of your Temps and humidity from each day, you can look down to the minute to track your environment.

Ugh. Just what I need. Any suggested ways to combat it?
well make sure first., look at the inside leaves at different angles and try to find more of it.
i can only help if you have a 1000watt light or something very intense..
otherwise lots of others here will have ideas for you.
she is still small so it’s worth doing..

though you have to determine if she has wpm? maybe try posting a couple photos by moving branches to the side?
