I find that 99.9% of the time when someone is having problems with their VFT it's because they're growing it indoors. Glad yours is coming along so far. Getting it outdoors was the best medicine for it.

Yeah well I grow mine indoors under 2 2700 kelvin amazon basics bulbs that I cut the plastic protection dome off of it so the bulb can produce even MORE LIGHT without being restricted, and I got a cheap light bulb splitter that splits my 2 bulbs (it turns 1 light socket into 2 light sockets!) And I gotta say it is VERY BRIGHT lol I sleep in my closet due to my anxiety, and so do my plants! And it is very bright when I kick the 2nd switch on, on my light cord, (I have two switches) I built this whole light system with a socket with a chain switch, 2 cords a wheel switch so I can push the wheel with my thumb to turn it on, then I assembled the switch by splicing the wires, it's too complex to explain... I also had to install a wire cap to connect two wires then I figured "hey this isn't bright enough" so I went to ebay to buy a e27 socket splitter so I can screw it into the socket and have 2 sockets in return! Now I get equal light almost everywhere and my plants flourish under some cheap a** led bulbs we got in a huge pack (well a box) and my vfts are even recovering from a mineral burn or some kind of burn or disease, and they look exactly the same as my king henry when it was out doors, no deformation, no light deprived petioles or traps it has been in the same pot for 2 months now every is perfect!ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Joshua, I know you get excited, but I've warned you previously about your language. Keep it PG, final warning.

It’s best to just remove it all together. I use fudge.
