Leaf Damage from Misting under Lights

The luxury of growing under a full spectrum of grow light is not all fun and games. This being the second year I have grown exclusively under artificial lights from roughly mid October thru Mid March I still have much to learn.  At the beginning of the season as the weather turned chilly and dry….I thought it would be beneficial to mist…mist and mist the plants throughout the day each and every day. After about a month of doing so, I discovered some disturbing leaf damage.  Not all plants and not all the same looking symptoms. As I backed off the misting to no null…the damage has ceased but many plants do not look so pretty. Here are the different looks of leaves that have been ‘burned’ by the intense light shining thru the water drops.
