Does this look like light burn?

  1. I have some small plants waiting to go into the tent, but the current crop is still finishing it's flowering. I recently changed the light in this cabinet from a couple CFLs to a 200w LED, and I noticed that the uppermost leaves are starting to have a different texture and very faint yellowing between the veins. That led panel is around 12 in from the tops of the plant.

  2. Quantum Board? Are you able to dim the light? I got myself a lux meter and learned that, even at recommended distances, QBs usually put out more light on full blast than veging plants like. [​IMG]

  3. Thanks for responding. Yes, it is a QB and unfortunately, it doesn't dim. I had the board waiting to go into another tent, so I figured I'd use it in the clone/seedling cabinet in the mean time. I took it out today assuming the light was too strong. Up until a few months ago, all my experience has been with CFLs which are extremely forgiving. The QB doesn't produce any heat, so I thought things would be fine at that distance.

  5. Looks more like a zinc deficiency to me.

    Also, you can get a lux meter app for your phone that will measure the lux with your camera. It's not the most accurate thing but it'll give you a ballpark on how much light your canopy is getting.
