Cannabis too much light

When there’s no easy way to move lights away from the plants, a grower can bend taller plants to angle them away from the direct impact of over-lighting. The effect is the same as if the lights themselves were repositioned. It’s all about adding distance.

Let’s take a look at over-lighting and consider available remedies.
Although too much light can impede plant growth, it’s also a fairly easy problem to fix. There are a couple of common methods for remediating a too-bright greenhouse.

Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for these symptoms to emerge to know whether greenhouse lighting is too strong. One simple test asks the grower to put a hand, palm down, at the top of the plant. In 10 to 15 seconds, you’ll feel how much heat the plant is getting. If it is too hot for comfort on the back of your hand, that’s probably more lighting than the plant requires.
Distance matters when it comes to lighting. Plant burn often comes about when plants are growing too close to the main source of light and heat. Depending on your greenhouse configuration, it may be relatively easy to raise light fixtures or otherwise distance them from plants.
Digital monitoring tools can also help a grower keep an eye on lighting levels. Sensors that track heat and humidity can give a good sense of greenhouse conditions. By tracking the environment via a smartphone app, an informed grower will know if things are getting too hot and dry, a possible sign that the lights are cranked up too high.
Cannabis plants will show a number of key signs when they’re getting too much light.
Too much light can harm cannabis plants, and a thoughtful grower needs to be strategic about the placement and strength of light sources in a greenhouse environment.

The most obvious indicator is leaf burning. This typically causes yellow leaves at the top of the plant directly under the grow lights. While the inside veins stay green, the leaves take on a yellow, burnt look. This effect may be mistaken for nitrogen deficiency, but nitrogen-deficient leaves typically fall off on their own, while light-burned yellow leaves won’t fall off or be easily plucked.

Read on to learn about light burn in corps and what remedies exist to fix and prevent this common growing issue.

Funky bud growth can occur when too close to a light also .

Wha. You mean Cal Mag doesn’t fix everything??
If its lumen shock they turn a limey to lemony color. The leaves will kind droop a little bit and a little shrivled. They will also just kinda stay like that and not grow.

Wanna see a picture of something really funky? This occurred only after putting the light these girls had been under for two weeks onto a mover. The leaves remained soft and pliable, no obvious “burning”, they just looked as though someone threw bleach on them and then there was that weird pinching.
