    I woke up this morning and when i checked on my plant the leaves were hanging down. the plant is healthy and i was wondering if maybe this is a result of not getting enough water.? any ideas? any help would be appreciated. i have 3 cfls booming out 8,oo lumens, they are posistioned like this. two lights at the top posistioned 3 inches to the side and 3 inches above, the other light is posistioned the same way but is shining in from the front on top but 3 inches away.

    could be under water or over water if the soil feels dry when you push your finger into it then give it sum water and watch it rise again..

    i think its under waterd. buy a moisture meter, it helps me out so much! a cup and a half isnt very much, i water 2 of my plants which are in 5 gallon bucktes half a gallon a day. sometimes a full one. they drink it all up too!

    lights are fine, you need more water if the soil feels dry

    How big is your pot? A cup and a half is not very much.

    how tall is your plant? That pot sounds like it is too small.
