Also drop your humidity to around 50-55%... cause sure as hell that 75% is making things even worse for the plants ability to uptake.
That isn't the humidity reading. Lol. It just shows the lowest temp it's read and the highest

Regular (plastic) pots properly sized for your plants would help til you get more experienced in the garden.

Proper watering practices and a stable environment will make your life much easier.

Hello everyone. I noticed that my plant leaves are starting to curl. I have 2 led lights right above around 12 inches away. ive always noticed this plants leaves never would pray to the light. Always have been a little thin and clawing downwards . Is the clawing a sign of the light being to close? Or something else.
I do have a intake fan that is pretty powerful and it's constantly blowing light air on the plants. Could that be it?
No. It's most likely the lights, but it could also be too much fertilizer.

I just wanted to say that if you still have them in fabric pots, and are willing to give it another shot with them, the best practice I have learned where I live, and it's bone dry here as I live in the freak 100 degree desert. I still use fabric pots though because of the air penetration.
Personally I see nothing wrong with letting the top of the soil get hydrophobic, yes it does make it harder to water properly but it also ensure the roots get their dry time, which is just as crucial as the wet time, at least here in the desert. When they get hydrophobic the water will run of the sides, so just put about a liter in them at first, going down the line hitting every plant. Then wait 5 mins and come back and do the same thing, if the water still runs off the side of the fabric pots early (it shouldn't run of the side of the fabric pot at all actually, only a little at first) then wait another 5 mins and do the same thing. Eventually the water will quit being hydrophobic and you can water like normal. Also having a saucer under the plant to catch the runoff that does go over the side is crucial, just let that water sit there in the bottom of the saucer and the plant will suck it up. Get use to lifting your pots 100% soaked with water, so you know what it feels like.
I will even sometimes let them stay dry so long as they droop over, just to see how the pot feels with them completely dry. Then use this method to see if your pots need water, walk through and lift the pots. Get in there close and blow 'em a kiss, A kiss a day keeps the bugs away.
Of course if you can't get to them easily or if they in far to large a pot for that then clearly this method won't work :)
Also, I would totally move the light up, specially if you don't have a way to lower the brightness. I run anywhere from 20 to 40 inches away, and according to some people that is still to close. If it's a 50"- 60" tent, all the way to the top, below the air outtake, or if it's a 72" (6-foot) tent then....still at the top :). Good luck to you!

you say you have a fan blowing on them, is it blowing down on them? if so, that is a problem, the hot air is at the top over the lights, if you have a fan blowing the hot air down on them that isnt really great.

I have the intake fan all the way at the bottom but it is hard to get it to not blow air straight on the plants. And I have another small clip fan towards the bottom facing up at the lights
