    Droopy Leaves

    I have noticed that lately my plants leave seem to droop once the light turns out. Right now it is on an 18/6 light schedule, is this common?

    They're sleeping. At night they actually seem to grow more, as if, all day they were working, converting light and nutrients into fantastic green. Many plants close their blooms at night (ex. morning glories).

    if they stay dropping it could be caused by over watering

    I think your nitrogen level is to low that also can cause leaves to fall

    If its only when the lights are out i wouldnt worry about it.

    Drooping leaves can be a sign of over watering, under watering, and heat, although more often than not the leaves will point up in the case of heat stress.

    My plants at the mo are on an 18/6 and i have now proved to myself that plants grow quicker on 18/6 than 24/0.

    My plants also droop in the dark period, not alot, but a little, but as soon as the lights come on in the morning they're back to they're normal happy weedy selves.

    You should find out approximately how long it takes before the plants begin to droop, and water then. Letting the plant wilt to determine when to water isn't a good method to use. This stresses the plant and can lead to stunted/delayed growth. These plants are hardy, so missing a watering isn't usually a death-sentence for the plant, but it's definitely not something you should do on a regular basis.

    in order to do not death sentence them we should water while they are droppy?

    Droopy leaves can mean several things, as other posters here have stated, but if you know the plant is drooping due to underwatering, you should should water at the first signs of it drying out. If you're not entirely sure why the leaves are drooping, don't water extra just because of this symptom. Usually, you know if the plant is drying out.

    If it's allowed to dry out completely, it can lead to the death sentence (though rarely), in most instances it will take a day or so to fully regain turgidness in the leaves and stems. There's a link in my signature from Rusty Trichome that says it all: "It can be a fine balance between 'ok...I need to water later today' and 'shit...I should have watered yesterday.'"
