Part of the "breathing" cycle is the roots uptaking both water and nutritional elements from the soil, so it's important to let them dry out in between waterings. Too much watering is like taking a giant breath in, taking a tiny one out, and then trying to take another giant one in. The inverse also applies.
Great analogy! (This may be an inappropriate term)

For seedlings I use T-5 ho flourescents at about 12 inches from the tops. Once established i work down to 8 inches.

For flower i start at about 2 feet for a 6 week old plant under 2 600 hps’ and in winter an added 315 cmh. After a week or two the sweet spot in my room is about 18 inches under the glass enclosed reflectors.

Overwater plus I couldn't read that whole thing but I don't see where you're talkin about your pH?
