Tomato seedlings

Tomato    None Given

My Tomato seedlings have white spots on some of them and seem like some leaves are drying up. What can it be? They are still under lights as I live in CT and have like 3 weeks before I can plant them out. How can I help them. Do I remove those leaves?

I think it could be due to excess heat produced by lights. How many hours do the seedlings get the light? Excess heat followed by temporary water stress causes this kind of symptoms. Generally the stressed leaves will recover once the conditions are good.

Hi I keep them under the lights about 15 hrs sometimes 17. Should I clip those leaves off? Thank you so much for your input.

David Hughes commented,
no, you dont need to remove the leaves. They problem is just stress due to heat that causes the cells to burst. The leaves will grow and will be fine
