First grow is harder than I thought, opine if you feel like it

Having some issues, some plants seem stunted, while a few have done alright. Check out the leaves on the one and if you know, what causes the blotching? Indoor grow with Viparspectra 300w X 3 lights. The smaller ones get put on the deck for real sunshine, plants are rotated for the so everything gets light.

How close are your lights?


It is a light stress and burnt. As I can see in pictures


yep, that’s what it looks like, but @bruce9432 hasn’t checked back in here for 6 hours so we will have to wait and see.

I would still like to see the Support Ticket filled out.


Yes I agree. I told only my first look opinion for avoid more damage. It is normal @bruce9432 must check everything before trust my think


you’re good @Teddy78 I just didn’t want him to move the lights up and then not answer the support ticket questions and we miss something else!

Yes it is right what you are saying


enlarging the last photo…are the stems purple?

The plants are so nice and compact, stems don’t show and it could be the light coloring them…the lower leaves are looking damaged.

I think it light burn as well and that would also explain stunted plants light being to close no need to reach for it
I agree with @Teddy78 on this one :point_up:
Good call ted
And @kabongster your right too something is going on with that bottom pic bro
@bruce9432 you should post a support ticket
@MattyBear you can see they are close looks like 18 inches maybe

I agree with moving the lights up and it looks like another issue as well like you said @Countryboyjvd1971. Support ticket would be good. I keep my led 24-36" above when they are in veg depending on how they are reacting

How to fix light burn

How to fix light burned cannabis leaves

If you think the plants are getting more light than is necessary, start by sliding the grow light farther from the top of the plants.

Light bleaching because of sunlight is very rare when outdoor growing and there is no way they will ever get too close to the sun. If you move your plants from a bad situation, then into the sun they may display sign of light bleaching if they never had a chance to adjust to the increase in light.

Take it slow when adjusting your plants conditions. You don’t want to stress your plant out for either outdoor or indoor growing.

Maintain a cozy temperature consistently for the best results and health. Think about it like this, if you feel like it’s too hot, then certainly it’s too hot for the plants. Things aren’t as simple for outdoor growing, but take the time to learn what to do for outdoor heat.

Thanks Will. I was hoping @bruce9432 would check back in with the support ticket information. I also believe there are signs of heat stress? Or is the canoeing a side affect of the light burn?


Yes and i nave pic’s showing this also.

Thanks Bob

my mistake for thinking it was something besides the light damage…

There could be other issues there as well, but without the ticket. We can only be left to wonder! :sunglasses:

Noobie question…

Could it be from rotating the plants outside for real sun and then back under lights and maybe stressing the plants??

@jim001 It could be. Putting young plants under a t5 or cfl and then putting them right under an LED that is too close. There is also signs of heat stress which could indicate a heater that was too close or using a “heat generating” lamp or bulb that got too close. All speculation until we hear back from @bruce9432
