    It maybe some kind of chemical burn. Did you spray them with any kind of fertilizer or perhaps inadvertedly got something like a cleaning product (ammonia) on the leaves?

    Is it happening on just the older leaves, or younger leaves as well? How much light was it getting before, and how much is it getting now?

    Are your growing conditions so humid that water droplets stay on the leaves overnight?

    I think those two leaves are older, they are leaf closer to the bottom of the stem. I have one 17w fixture, haven't changed the lightbulb.

    Possibily, but now I open the little doors I made out of saran wrap at night so it shouldn't have any more drops. It was a little too humid a couple times.

    Seems like the yellow dots cover the top 3/4 of the leaf. The closer it is to the stem, no yellow dots.

    Seems virus or fungus. Spray fungicide to see what happen.
