I am on my first grow and purchased a 2x2x4 grow tent with a PhatSlim Phantom One grow light. This is an Amnesia Haze auto flower growing in FFOF. It is currently on day 86 past germination transplant which occurred on September 20. Flowering began on October 14 (8 weeks into flowering, beginning the ninth week today.) I have been having a problem with “yellowing” leaves which was initially deduced to be “under nutrition.” The nutrients were being adjusted but yellowing leaves continued. Earlier on a forum member indicated “light burn” which indeed is occurring. The light burn is getting worse. I have raised the light to its highest possible position in the tent. Light schedule was adjusted to 16-8. (Side note: I misunderstood the light schedule early on using 24/7 for seedling and did not make “the flip” at flowering. The light schedule adjustment did not occur until three weeks ago.) I’m hoping I have not done irreparable damage to the plant because it is clearly still struggling.
(I feel like a horrible parent!)
In as much as I intend on continuing to grow I purchased another outfit for the grow room. I purchased a 2x4x6 grow tent with a TSL 2000 grow light. I moved the plant into the new grow tent about a week ago but have discovered that I cannot raise the TSL 2000 very much higher than the other grow light was due to the Carbon Filter being in the way. It may be too soon to do so but I am not observing any improvement at all in the light burn and it seems to continue to worsen. (I don’t know if a plant will recover from light burn.)
Other than waiting it out and hoping for the best is there anything else I can be doing? The TSL 2000 has a light intensity adjustment for the various stages of plant growth. (Would lowering the intensity be a consideration?) I am beginning to see where the light burn is affecting the “sugar leaves” as well. Your feed back will be most appreciated and I assure you that do better on the next go round.
I have read a little about “albino weed” and most definitely hope to avoid that! (Do you think that will be an outcome for this plant?) Thank you for your feed back and help!
