Hi! This leaf on my Blue Spice basil seedling is curling and drying up on the end. I have Persian basil in the same conditions and it is fine. Ideas?

Any fertilizer causing leaf-burn in young plants? Or too close to supplemental light or harsh bright sunlight?

No fertilizer but it could be too close.

A little "sunburn" from the lights is what it looks like to me, too.
