I would trim those leaves off. They look like maybe the first set of true leaves. Trimming those off will open up under the plant to allow her to get some air. Also, leaves touching the lids will sometimes give you issues.

Search and fill out a “support ticket” so we can help better evaluate your grow.

Like @kellydans mentioned, new growth looks good. I wouldn’t worry too much about it unless you see it spreading throughout the plant.

Good luck! :+1:t2::v::sunglasses:


I just so happened to have the support ticket copied, so here it is!

Those leaves appear to have had other leaves sit on top of them. Cut them off if they are an eyesore, otherwise let them be.
Your plant does appear to be lite on Nitrogen, but they are young. My Gold is also lime in color. Pretty sure it’s a heavy feeder too.
