    Please, i need some help. My plants have some kind of trouble and i need to know what it is in order to save them.
    They are in an indoor, I have them with an HM of 100W, two fans (in and out). The temperature is usually 16 C at night and moves arround 24 C with the lights on.
    The lights are on a 4/20 regime so far, the plants are auto flowering. They are 2 weeks old. The humidity outside the indoor is very high. With the lights on inside moves from 45 to 60%, but at night sometimes it goes up to 84%. Now it has a dehumidifier, so i reckon that wont be a problem anymore, but perhaps it was too late.
    The earth in the pot is made of planting earth, pearls (having problems here with the translations from spanish hehe), and peat. There were some yellow and white spots in the earth inside the pots, i covered it with more earth.
    I used some organic foliar fungicide two days ago, and foliar fertilizer a day ago.
    I've been watering each 4 or 5 days.
    There some pics. Pleas help them

    Hi. I fertilized because of the probelm, so that wasn't it, but maybe it made it worse.
    The plants are lime 2 feet away from the light, and im using just a 100 W HM, so it's not that stron.
    I'm not shure how can the fans be battering the seddlings... didnt get that part.
    I haven't checked on the ph yet because i order a ph meter but it's hasn't arrived yet.

    I use normal pottin soil from store for seedling then two weeks I'll transplant it to a 8cm across an 15cm deep pot with a third compost a third sterile topsoil an third perlite this works well two weeks in that pot then I move them to a 7.5 l pot with the same mix soil which I add lime the lime brings the soil ph down but the soil must be preped at least a week befor the longer the better this will help keep the ph of the soil at 6.5 I hope this helps mate
    I'll try post a couple of pics when I get home show u my girls lol
