Any ideas for the burned leaf tips? I'm thinking light burn but my light is pretty far away.

Hi @Mosephvon! My guess is that your leaves are suffering from heat, and a poor airflow, as a result the leave's tips are slowly curling and burning. To solve this issue, you can increase the distance between your apical summits and the lights, you can add a small rotating fan slightly blowing onto the plant's canopies, or you can try to decrease your daily temperature, by reinforcing the global airflow or by putting iced water bottles in your grow tent every morning. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Burnt leaf tips is usually due to nutrient burn. I'd recommend backing down on your nutrients to 1/2 or 3/4 strength. Autos don't need as many nutes as photoperiod plants. And the recommended dosage should be considered maximum strength. Nutrient companies recommend maximum strength because the faster you use up your supply, the sooner you'll order more. Personally I only feed once per week (at around 1/2 strength), the rest of the week the plants get PH'ed water only. Hope this helps! Good luck! :+1:

Hey Mo your plants are healthy but your leaves are curlen from exposure to the fan... try turning your fan down a notch or maybe not constantly pointing at them, even point it towards a wall :-) Hope this helps ! Good luck !
