    I've heard otherwise, and from experience, the mix seems to make my plants much more colorful as compared when I used only cool bulbs. I really highly doubt this problem is from lack of light, or lack of "photosynthesizable" light.

    The bulbs I'm using are 2 6500k and 2 3500k. Separated evenly between 2 2-bulbed 48'' ballasts.

    still didnt see any bugs (using a 30x magnifying lens). Ive had aphids before so its not like I dont know what to look for. there's just no sign of any pests in the soil or on the plants this time.

    The plant pictured is in its own tray along with some binata leaf cutting plantlets, their soil is the same and those arent having any problems now that I started paying attention to them. I had actually just repotted this plant from its nasty old soil awhile ago, the old silica sand I had been using was full of nasty salts and other sollubles, but that was at least a month ago.
    ive tested the new sand and peat with distilled water and a tds meter and it didnt raise the tds. so no, It's not fertilzers.
    I've lowered water levels, but I havent seen any improvement so far.
    this is probablly not the problem, but could this have anything to do with my elevation? I live at about 5,000 feet. I know humans have a harder time getting oxygen from the air at higher altitudes, could it be that the plants are having a hard time gettin co2 or o2?
