I'd hope not too close. After I moved the LEDs as close as I could without risk of the touching the bulbs they started to respond well. I shopped adding nutes and they are responding really well to that. I noticed that a lot of the issues with the leaves started right after I started to add fertilizer.
New growth no longer has twisted growth or warped tips. So far a week without adding any nutes and I see that they are growing faster, look healthier, and seem to not be getting any more damage to the leaves aside from the pests.
I'll get some flypaper today. I can pop it over by the window once I open it. Damn things just want to escape through the window, but the screen won't let them out. As tempted as I am to open it I'll regret it instantly. I really don't want to deal with a yellow jacket infestation in my house. Never again. IDC if they seem to love me. Damn things bite chunks off if they feel like it.
Once I can solve the light leaks in that room I'll start switching to 12/12. Rn they have a 2 hour window with extremely low light leaking in through the cracks where there's no coverage. Duct tape will solve my problems for now.
Edit: Almost forgot. The container is exactly 1 foot deep, 1.5 feet wide, and 4 feet long. I thought I'd have plenty of room. I'll start to try and presex the plants. Hopefully I have a female in the bunch.
Tbh I never planned on all of them getting to harvest. I just figured with the bagseed odds I might be better off planting a good amount of them. Hopefully I get at least 1 female.
