So I have a few GG going. When they popped I turned on the lights, 30 inches and set the dimmer to 10%. That made them stretch so then I wised up and did some reading and I found someone here posted the company rec for seedlings with the light is 20-40% so I reset to 20%. Stopped the stretch but now I’m getting lean. Spun the cups and they’re still leaning same dir after 2 days. Does anyone think the light needs to be cranked up more? These guys are a week old today, leaves are good color, not folding in any dir and they face the lights and are horizontal. It’s just the stems leaning. I’ve had a slight breeze going on them since they popped as I’m keeping a small pot with distilled water and a clean towel partially submerged to produce humidity and the fan keeps it circulating well. averages 73 in the day with between 60-72% humidity.
I can’t be mistreating them unless the light just isn’t strong enough. Since they aren’t stretching anymore but rather just leaning, should I just leave them and spin, up the light or reduce the light etc? At first I thought it was too much light but any less and they stretch.
Through this first week I’m pulling 100 watts out of the wall with this light. I measure roughly 8 to 9k using a phone app and reading off white paper at the same height as the leaves.
Does gorilla glue have any tendency to lean that we know of? Too much circulation? Light?
I’d think 100 watts out of this light at 30" should be good for week old seedlings.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
