    way too much light, temps too low, humidity way too low, too high EC (you should use distilled \ rain water if possible at this stage).You want the 125W CFL for another week at least, at ~10" above the tops.You want the temps around 27 °C - reduce venting.You want the humidity around 75% (higher is preferable than lower) - reduce venting and if needed use a humidity dome.You want the EC around 0.5 mS. - use lower EC water to begin with.

    yer think i got the wrong info so if i go back to 125w cfl for one more week? having it on 18hours? and 10inch away from tops of plants to light? and feed with just tap water? also how often should i have my extract on and intake on for? also my blue lab truntion doesnt come up with a reading when i use tap water. i woundered why there wasnt doing very much seem a slow growth rate and the seeds are jack herer. thank you for your help really want to get these up and good again as its my first time it all seems to be going totally wrong!!!!

    yes/ yes/ yes/ no- use low nutrient feed with lower EC water / take the meter back to the shop / you welcome / RIU sucks for fucking up the "enter".

    well ive turned intake fan and extract fan off for now! need more info of how to have them on ect!! changed to CFL now and moved lights to 10inch above the plants and put the humidity dome on got the temp up to 23 and humidity up to 83% and just watered them with water! and now the plant has improved its not drooping now. thank you. just checked my ec meter and now it reads from 0.2 EC so if i mix sum neutriants up to a EC of 0.5? and what ph should i have it at? sorry what does RIU mean as im new to this?

    Get your temp much higher and it would lower the RH (relative humidity) quite a bit. /You can put your vents on a thermostat to cool the grow only if the temps go above 27°C./ If you tap is 0.2mS EC you should add nutrients to top that off to 0.5mS. (mS stands for mili-siemense which is the common units to count electric conductivity, EC, in fluids)/ RIU stands for RollItUp, and lately it doesn't create new lines when you type "enter".

    if you spray your plants it might be from chlorine or other contaminants in the water. if you don't, post a picture.

    They are good to go to a hydro system if you have one. no need for bigger cubes. get the 600W in there in a week and place it 1.5 meter above the plants, lowering it 20cm each week until you get to around 25-30 cm from the plant tops.

    Absolutely agree with everything above. Make sure you keep those 600W at least 1 metre above and NEVER closer than 40-60 cm from top of canopy. I can imagine you had them quite close.
