  1. I have tried to grow before but never successfully because of my parents but now i have my own place and this plant I've been growing is probably about a month old and its maybe 1-1/2 foot tall and its leaves seem to be yellowing and they look kind of sickly i have them in a 1x1x3 ft box with a 125 watt flood grow bulb and i have another plant that's only been in there for 3 weeks and its doing fine should i cut them off leave them on because the top leaves seem to be doing ok im not quite sure what to do. 

     
  2. i was reading some other guides and i think that i water it too much because i water every day so that might be why but iam always worried when i see dry soil so maybe thats the problem
     
  3. Yes, you are watering to much. Only water when the soil an inch or so deep is dry. I find it best to let the plant tell me when to water, the leaves will start to wilt, then drench it good.

  4. Wrong section but your yellow leaves are probably symptoms of a nitrogen deficiency, overwatering may have contributed to this by leeching the soil.
     
  5. I think changing your light to a cfl would be better for the same amount of watts than a flood light, i've heard those are no bueno
     
  6. nice avatar too haha mike judge knows American culture in the funniest ways
     
  7. same thing happened to me but i didnt over water it
    my problum was that i made a water reservoir of like a liter of water with PH down to get it to 6.
    i never checked the water after that till i noticed yellowish in the leafs
    when i checked water it was at 7.5 i think
    so moral of story, check your water PH everytime
