    20171119_201125.jpg My plant is about 2 weeks old (counting after it sprouted from soil) Im concerned about the leafs kind of "fading" or "paleness". Its almost like the green is being flushed out. The plant seems to be growing normal It's just a slight concern of mine. Ive added a up-close pic of the 2nd node leafs (they're the biggest on the plant and seem to be effected the most.)

    Anybody have any feed back? The research I've done suggests light burn maybe? I'm not entirely sure.

    Your 300 watt LED light probably puts out 140 to 170 watts, and at 20" from the plant I doubt there would be light burn. You could move it up to 24" and see if you see improvement in new growth. Don't worry about the PH of your soil, but do check the PH of anything you feed, whether it's plain water or water/nutrient mix and aim for 6.2 to 6.5 PH. Good luck, bro. :)
