    it may be that your rh is a little low for veg. i like to run mine at around 70% at 75F
    these numbers are too high for flower. the plants love it, but so do mold, mildew, and botrytis. i try to stay under 50% in flower, even though it would be better for the plants to be at 75% or higher Vapor-Pressure-Deficit-Chart-by-fregrowli.jpg

    Ok thanks guys I'm gonna raise the light a few inches I try to keep it around 18" above them. I'll try to get a humidistat so I can keep a closer eye on humidity.

    well i didn't say raise the light, i was just asking.

    you want them to get as much light and light penetration as possible.

    No I think you might be right the light was pretty close they stretched a bit and those two were really were close to the reflector like within a few inches so I raised it just a few inches.

    Ok so the discoloration does appear to be spreading on the edges of the two leaves closest to the one that originally had it.

    You think it's anything to worry about @Roger A. Shrubber ? I don't think it's mites I was thinking maybe a disease or deficiency.

    not sure, doesn't look like a deficiency, doesn't look like a ph problem, the white tips are slight over feeding.
    don't think it's bugs....i'm honestly not sure exactly what that is. might be a slight zinc deficiency, you can buy a small container of zinc sulfate and apply a very small amount as a foliar spray. that's a guess, though. i don't think it can hurt anything to try, but i'm not guaranteeing that's what it is

    So I've been watering with Costco natural spring water but it's gonna get expensive now that they're in the 7 gallon pots. I'm expecting them to take 30 liters tonight. I don't want to use my water bc they shock the well every so often it is perfectly drinkable and tasteless, I can fill up at another house but the waters hard. The nearest roadside spring is about a 20 minute drive. What do you think my best option is? Use my own, use the hard water, or go to the roadside spring. @Sour Wreck

    Edit: sorry Sour Wreck a simple Google search gave me the answer didn't mean to waste your time. Spring water it is.

    you are not wasting my time. we are all involved in something we love doing. i don't have all the answers, but am always happy to answer a question if i know it.

    my water is horrible so i collect rain water and run hydro with it. i understand you can't do this in an apartment, but something to remember in the future if you can use it.

    good luck

    I wonder if the plant is using up the majority of water just trying to stay cool and fight the dryness.

    they do, but they can burn themselves at higher temps/rh unless you lower the ppm a little. they have no choice but to use the water in the pot, and if its full of nutes, the leaves will start absorbing it, then they start to dry out, thicken, the surface gets rough, then they start to get necrotic spots from the inside out, so if you run high temps, run lower ppm

    When do you plan to flip to 12/12? I'm an apartment (closet) grower myself. Good to see others giving it a try. I've gotten my environment dialed and it took 3 grows. Fans are going to be your best friend come flowering. Good luck and your girls are looking great!

    What are those black cords in your pots? Are they used for watering?

    How does one interpret this chart if you don't mind me asking?

    you want your rh to be in the green strip, so on the left, find your average high temp, and raise (or lower) your rh to the numbers in the green. you basically want to get as close to 10.0 as you can

    if you're staying in the same tent to flower, then i'd flip pretty soon, they'll get bigger than you think
