Sorry I should read things more thoroughly before responding ppfd
That's low my dude. Your plant is calling for higher sun beams. Check out phlizon. There on the farm. Anything over 200 should get you a pretty beastly light. Spiderfarmer is the best in the game. But if you can't drop 4 hunned phlizon is pretty beast for the money.
I'm flowering 6 plants with the pl-4500
No problem. 220 dollar light

I'm thinking leave light where it's at.
Remember your last water and shoot for at least 7 days between. Water 20% your pot size. 3 gal 1/2 gal water. 5 gal 1 gal water. Water slow af. It takes me over a hour to water 6 plants. Make sure you saturate your pot. Than let it dry out till it feels like Styrofoam. You can always wait till your plant wilts but if you let pot dry out till Styrofoam weight you should be good. This is thee biggest thing I've learned so far.

Keep your humidity around 50%
I kept my lights at 75% around 3ft away for whole veg. I think I was going hard on em. Next run I'm only running veg light 50%. I'm still learning and have found that they don't need as much light as I think they need. I always want to give them as much light as my lights allow. I'm in flower and still haven't hit 100% my plants are happy at 80%
I still want to give em the whole power.
Find out how to use this site. Find a grow setup you like and try to copy it.
I've learned a lot in under a year.

top soil layer look rather dry.

so look like it's thirsty to me.

did you water and moist the whole soil at least once or did you just water small amount of water ?
So when it started turning I moistened it pretty well and added the humidifier.. a day after that a friend who grows was saying it looks thirst so water it and transplant it which I did and it just tanked and turned into what you see today I’ve been picking up the pot and checking the moisture levels and there is still a bit of heft to the pot and the moisture level is reading “moist” so I’ve been trying to let it dry out

K sounds good it’s just disappointing cause I was doing so well with almost no issues and it seems like all of a sudden she took a turn and I’m hoping she comes back but I just don’t know when I’m past the point of no return and I should pull her out and start a new seed… so you live and you learn I guess but it’s just kind of discouraging.

Yeah I was thinking the same as soon as I saw it the way it’s pulled in on its self and shriveled.

Re reading the time line before it was heavily watered your friend was saying it’s thirsty sounds like it went from one extreme to the other leaving it looking like both overwatered and underwatered.

How long has it looked like that do you have a fan blowing directly on the plant

I have a fan blowing directly on it and it’s been looking like that for about a week

How hard is it blowing?
Where's your humidifier?
Where's the mist in comparison to the plant? Not misting directly on plant correct?

How compacted is your soil? Can the roots breath?

You don’t want it blowing directly on the plant even on its lowest setting turn it around so it’s facing the wall and let the air bounce of the wall or have it above the plant.

well it shouldn’t just up and die let it dry and you should be good

One thing them moisture meters can read incorrectly if the soils not compact enough it doesn’t read correctly

The fan is on the lowest setting and I aimed it just above the plant so that the leaves are just gently rustling. The humidifier is about a foot or two away and the spout is aimed at the door of the tent so it is not directly covering the plant. And the soil is not all that compact when repotted it I made sure to kind of keep it fluffy so I’m assuming the roots can breath cause I didn’t really push it down
