Light Burn? First Time Grower

Does this look like light Burn to you guy’s? I currently have them under 2 1200watt LED philizon lights pulling approx 400watts from wall. Lights were 22" above the the soil so it was approx 20"-20 1/2" from the plant. I moved them up to 22" again already, just want to be sure I’m not dealing with something else.


You can probably be running 1 light right now about 2’ above plant. If I was guessing, I’d say what you’re seeing is from being wet under the lights. Have you been spraying it?

@dbrn32 haven’t sprayed them in 4 or 5 days. I have 3 plants just over a week old, this is the smallest of the 3 and the only one to have these spots. Is it a possible calcium deficiency?

At this early stage it shouldn’t need much of anything but water. Too much water though and you will start to grow other things that are not good. Let the soil dry out between watering.

@WickedAle I’ve only watered twice including the time I put them into soil. The soil was quite dry when I watered as it had been a week.

I don’t think there is anything wrong. Plant looks green and is growing. First set of leave are always nasty and will be taken off at some point anyway. Just be patient. Soon you will have a beautiful flower.

I’d say it looks like a spot of moisture amplified your light, really nothing to worry about just try to be careful with moisture on leaves during lights on time
