    Hello All,

    I have just started growing a clone indoors at my home. I''ve grown from seed outdoors previously, but never started a grow with a clone indoors. The guy at the dispensary where I bought the clone told me to keep it inside under a grow light until it got big enough, then put it outdoors to bud. I have the clone indoors on the top of a file cabinet with a Blue 60W Philips Agri Gro Incandescent Bulb directly above the plant. I'm having a problem with some of the leaves curling up and seeming to dry out in various places on the plant from about the middle on down to the lower part of the plant. The top leaves seem to be ok.

    Here is a complete description of what I've got going on:

    Soil Growers:
    1. Are you growing from seed or clones?

    Clones
    2. How old are your plants?

    Not Sure. I bought it about 2 weeks ago.
    3. How tall are your plants?
    About 1foot 4 inches tall.

    4. What size containers are they planted in?
    3.5inch diameter x 3.5inch tall Jiffy Peat Pot.

    5. What is your soil mix?
    Transplanted root ball with Rockwool Cubes. I added Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Soil around the Rockwool Root Ball in the Peat Pot.

    6. How often do you water and what type of water do you use?
    I usually water every couple of days. I use tap water.

    7. What is the pH of your water?
    Don’t know.

    8. What kind of fertilizer do you use and what is its NPK ratio?
    The Miracle Grow Potting Soil already has fertilizer in it. I haven’t used anything other than the potting soil.

    9. Do you foliar feed or spray your plants with anything?
    I only put water on the soil.

    10. What kind of lights do you use and how many watts combined? (HPS, MH, fluorescent, halogen, incandescent "plant lights")
    I use one Philips 60 Watt, 120V A19 Plant Grow Incandescent Blue Light Bulb.

    11. How close are your lights to the plants?
    The Light is about 11 inches above the top of the plant.

    12. What size is your grow space in square feet?
    The Plant is in my office on top of my filing cabinet. The Light is suspended from a hook in the ceiling. Plenty of space around the plant.

    13. What is the temperature and humidity in your grow space?
    Normal Indoor Room Temperature. Low Humidity.

    14. What is the pH of the soil?
    Don’t Know.

    15. Have you noticed any insect activity in your grow space?
    No Insects.

    16. How much experience do you have growing?
    This is my 2nd crop, but only the first time starting with a clone.
    I tried to upload a few pics of the plant showing the problem I'm having with the leaves, but I keep getting an error message that says: "undefined" "There was a problem uploading your file Photo1 9480 x 640 Jpg".
    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong with the pic upload process.
    Can anyone help me with the grow problem? Please advise about the pic upload process as well, if you can help.
    Thanks.
    Silvercain
