Interesting seeing how fast the water in your pot was evaporating, almost 90 ml a day! I am currently raising some original Skunk from crop king, and they look a bit different than your variety, check my journal if your interested. Good luck!!

How far away is your light from the seedling?
the light will be 10 - 20 cm far away from the plant until end

i should write that the electronic scale does not show sometimes the exact weight. example: if the real weight of the pot is 3,50kg, the display of the scale will show a weight between 3,40kg and 3,60kg or sometimes exactly 3,50kg

good luck everyone
