Hi Grower, welcome to :420:

The problem you are going to have is the thread is in the wrong spot. I will send a report in and hopefully a moderator will get it moved to the correct forum. In the meantime, check below in my signature for a link for new Members. You will need to visit and get familiar with things before we can really blow out help you. You plants look really good right now. Nice job!

I do see some things that we'd want to look at soon. Your leaves are curling up a bit..could be lack of water, but there also seems to be some discoloring around the edges..can you get some pics with the lights off. Can't see the colors under the LED's.

I have noticed the soil pH level
To be at 7.1, wondered if that should maybe be between 6-6.7? Using a soil meter for watering but I do know that maybe I am being a little to genourous with the water. No nutrients have been used. Thanks for your quick response. Im
Really enjoying this

Happy Frog is good soil so you won't have to worry about pH, but you will have to worry about the pH of the water you are giving it. What are you pH'ing your water at?
That curling could be pH locking out nutes. Is the curling one feel leathery or crispy?

Next is the LED lights. They'll cause the plants to use more Calcium so you should get some Calmag and start introducing that 1/2 strength for the first couple of feedings and then normal strength after that.
The pots you have the plants in are OK but I would highly recommend fabric pots on your next grow. It's hard to gauge when the plant needs watering. The soil testers that measure water moisture are not that accurate. Good growers will tell you to learn how to feel the weight of your pots when the plants need watering.
Check my link below for Proper ways to water a Potted Plant. It may shed some light on what you need to do.

Let's call in the troops and see if we can get you going with a good group on board. Everyone of the below I have learned to listen to and each has their own awesome ideas and opinions. Please welcome......

There are many more and we'll get them in here as we go along.

Looks great bro...if there's any way you can suspend that exhaust fan from the poles up top you'll free up some floor space. Most try and get it up and in a corner at the back. I know your tent is smaller and you know it better than I do but just a thought.

Thanks a lot for the great advice, I enjoy learning and the challenge. Ive ordered some water pH testers for the water as I used those not so good tester for the soil. Should be here by Monday of next week. I have looked into those fabric pots and will
Order for My 2nd growing time. Look
Forward to

Ya know when I put the last screw in I said “why the hell Did I do that.” Lol. I see why the top corner would be better. But I can squeeze 4 in their ok.... thanks for the message!!

OK I have a better idea now. I missed the 'box' setup and I'm thinking tent. I see the framework now in the one pic. I got ya now.

But no political here, all green!!! Stands 5ft , 2ft deep 4ft wide. 2 exhaust intake on floor and outtake on roof top left

Of course the more I look at the pics the more questions I have. Are you lined with tinfoil? If so is the shiny side out or in? If it's out you risk hot spots on your plants...something to keep in mind.

How close is that light from the top of plants? I just taco'd 5 plants by letting them reach too close to the light.

:48:
Oh damn. Sorry for your loss... my LEDs are approx 18-20” from
Top of plant
