Bottom leaves dying

I have a mother plant that I planted in November. It’s doing well, but the leaves on the bottom are starting to wilt & some of them dying. I have a LED light over top. I’m wondering if the bottom leaves aren’t getting enough light as the canopy (top) is very healthy. Would putting something reflective at the base of my plant get light to the bottom leaves & resolve my issue? Or would the bottom leave wilt for some other reason? Ie) overwatering?

I’m willing to bet that your plant is root bound. That might be part of the problem

Wilting and necrotic lower leaves is a sign of overwatering. Anerobic microbes are being favored in the soil. Roots need O2.

Looks overwatered, potentially a little high on nitrogen and probably root bound too.

I agree with the above; the first thing I saw was the N. Transplant up and allow your soil to go dry between waterings. Water to runoff with correct PH’d water. You should be fine.

Thank you all. I transplanted & water less. It cleared up the issues!
