Hi @Hash268! First of all, don't panic, I see nothing to worry about right now. Your plants are probably reacting to the high temperatures you're experiencing, I see both of your days and nights are very hot, and your relative humidity is high too, this often lead to strange symptoms such as leaves curling / leaves looking sad and not praying to the light anymore. If you can, try to cool down the temps, you can build a DIY air-conditioner with ice and a small fan, you can bring fresh air from the outdoor with the help of a long sheath, or any other technique that could help getting fresh air into your environment. Do not spray anything since you already have a good relative humidity, more water onto the leaves will prevent plants from breathing. I am confident your plants will recover soon, this is only a hot shot, and shouldn't last for long. You're doing great so far, so keep up the great work and happy growing! :facepunch:

Hi there @Hash268 Did you spray your concoction during lights on or off? It's not a good idea to spray any oil based
substance (natural or not) on the leaves during the lights on period as it can cause extra heat and burning of the leaves which is what I expect may have caused your problem along with the fact you are already experiencing temp related problems this could have inadvertantly made it worse?? Just a thought hope it answers your question and good luck

hey there, if you have a good environment you have a good grow, basically what happened was the plants stretched and stretched, then it became to hot and they didnt have the energy to keep their health so they started wilting. I see your lamp to plant distance is 45CM, next time try with 35cm, it seems close but it's better, and you'll grow shorter healthier plants. For the heat i do recommend to buy an evaporative cooler, it's cheap and clearly you need it my friend ! Hope this helps ! :rocket:

I had a heat problem in my first grow. It was due to two factors: my lights were too hot, and I didn't have a cool air intake. I had to route my inline fan to grab cool air from a spot near the a/c vent. I keep my plants from growing too close to the lights (LST and training). It works like a dream now :) Best wishes for your grow!
