          Your set up looks great... The only time my leaves stop reaching for the lights is when I need to give them some water. Some happy trees there.

            What a great set up you have Mike! Your trees look great! I have had this question in my mind too though lately.. Why do some appear to be reaching & others seem more content? I would like to know this too.. I've heard what you said, that when they reach they are healthy.. Also heard that when they reach that it means they are starving for more light & aren't getting enough.. So I don't know what is the right answer on that one.. Seems to me like yhe ones that are reaching want to grow faster, like maybe they are on a growth spurt & want more light, where maybe the ones that dont reach are working on their roots and not putting their energy in top growth at the moment? I don't know though, just my newbie theory anyway 😁

              Both make sense... I check moisture in pit with meter and says is correctly watered and the lights are respectfully close to them so I don't known. Maybe is just how tis tree growns...

                      It's that difference between worry and action that kills most young trees.

                        Sì. My problem is more mental think vs actually touching or disturbing. I learn valuable lessons from WillsC and now I just leave alone and no to worry too much. I just continue on do what he say and everytings good. I just curious if all tree reach/stretch out.
