Ok, guys yesterday I bought that spray that kills the insects, it works but I think I over spray the plant because today morning the tips of the leafs were burned can this be the problem?

If you sprayed while the lights were on, YES. YOu should spray just before the lights turn on. Is that what you did?

It doesnt hurt to turn the lights off a few hours in vege, so next time spray, turn off lights a few hours and let the liquid naturally disapate a while, then swithch them back on. The liquid droplets magnifies the light.

no, leave them be. If they are no longer usefull they will naturally fall off.

If it is just the tips, yes, leave them be. but, if you have ones that are worse. Then I dont agree. If a leaf is damaged the plant will try to repair it. That's alot of energy that could be used for new growth. I would pull the bad ones off in a heartbeat.

Thanks for the tip on the leaf repairing itself and wasted energy, never considered that :)
