Question Leaves Pointing Upwards

Hi All,

A question:

What does it mean when your leaves point upwards instead of drooping down. I have some plants i have under fluorescant lights, and when i put them really close, the leaves point upwards. If i move them farther away, they droop down again.

Is it a bad sign of something when the leaves point up?

Thanks in advance

Its NOT a BAD sign, its just the Plant stretching to the lght, or the leaves trying to stretch upward, gathering energy from the lights for growing, and producing its new growth...That's all.......

Are your floro's up high above your plants??? iff so , lower them as close as you can to the TOP's of the Plant's.... and you'l NOT get anywhere as much stretching to the lights, as it will result in a long stretchy tall plant, with not much foliage on it either, so keep em as close as poss to the lights to prevent this happening.

But any of this, that is happening to your plants will NOT effect your plants in a dangerous way at all....

Peace Out,
UrBigBuddie..........

Jake, based on what your saying, it sounds like the leaves would point up if the plant was far from the light, and droop if it was close. Your saying that hte leaves are pointing upward to collect more light, but for me they point upward when they are very close to the light. Am I misunderstanding you?

My plants point up when they are 1 inch away from the light, and droop when they are 3 inches away.

Thanks for your input Jake, but I'm still confused.

Are they getting enough water? What is the humidity in your CGE? What kind of floros are you using?

well as long as you are getting healthy growth, then your plant is perfectly healthy... leaves pointing up= a good thing, droopy leaves = bad thing... keeping your light as close as possible is the best thing for your plants. Just keep the soil moist and they should be fine... and don't let the bulbs touch.

you are worrying over nothing
