Hello Everyone,

I'm new to gardening and trying my hand at growing lettuce indoors under 24 hour fluorescent lights. The plants are about 3 weeks old and they started out looking great. Now, I've noticed several of the leaves have developed translucent spots (see pics) then eventually withering. I was wondering if it may be a light issue, but I can't find anything onlinE describing a similar issue. Any ideas would be appreciated!

Are lights on 24 hours? Plants need a rest too. Make it 16 on and 8 off.
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)
