    Day 6

    I have been running the lights for 12 hours a day using a timer from 6pm to 6am. It seems that the HC cuba is growing but more towards vertically than horizontally. Do i need to trim them or any ways that i can improve? Is the humidity ok?

    Day 22

    It's been a while since i update this.

    On a daily basis, i have been giving it light for 12 hours from 6pm to 6am with a bit of misting with air circulation.

    i can see that the plants are growing, but some of them are instead creeping horizontally, they are growing vertically.
    At the same time, i noticed that there are black stuffs. Anyone can share with me what are those? is it normal? Or is it mould/fungal?

    If those are mould/fungal, what should i do?
