    Sweating plants

    Watered this morning. Lights and fans went off at 3:00pm. Tent stays open even when lights are off. Just before I turned the lights off, I noticed the leaves had a bit of a sag to them. Figured it was just from the watering.
    I just turned the lights on and found what you see in the pictures. Had I not touched the plant, the water drops would only be on the fan leaf serrations. The sagging has unsagged.
    Fans have been reacquisitioned for drying purposes. No idea the temp or humidity but I'm sitting in the same as they are and not sweating. Click image for larger version

          Look up VPD Vapour Pressure Deficit. It's not actual sweat it's most likely condensation as the ambient leaf temperature was a couple degrees coolers than the air in your tent. I left my exhaust fans off a couple times and that happens everytime. Just the plants perspiration bringing up the humidity in the grow area and then that moisture recommending on the leaves due to a temperature difference. The plants actually breathe and release oxygen through the bottom of the leaves where the Stomata's are located they open and close the tips of the leaves is where the majority of the chlorophyll is that converts CO2, water, nutrients and sunlight from light energy into chemical energy ie sugars using the chlorophyll as the catalyst then they use the sugars produced to grow and release Oxygen through the underside of the leaves.
