Anyhow, because again i'm totally confused, since my light is that strong atm can i leave my seedlings without any light or i must provide something else? Note that the lamp is nowhere near the seedlings. As i said before i am trying my best to give them the best climate i can.
Your plants need 18/6 because they are vegging. You need to address this now before you get into a 12/12 cycle (worse)
I would seal my lights once again (as proper to do so) and regulate your tent without DEPENDING on your light to regulate the temps. Their job is to provide light, not maintain optimum temperature.
Sooner or later, you will need to drop your lights for optimum efficiency, for the lack of a batter word. You are no where NEAR where you need to be. 20-25 deg C lights on (68-78 deg F) with a 5-8 deg F swing when lighst are off. In veg mode right now my temps (lights on) are 72-73 deg F. Lights out 63-65 deg F. 65% RH
If I need to dial in my temps, I slow down my exhaust fan, retaining more heat (in this case) the downside, RH might also increase. It is a balancing act. The is a happy balance it is called tweaking.
Regardless of what you do, you need lights, period! That is why folks run there lights at night (cooler temps). In your case you are using your lights as a HEATER, vice providing a healthy environment for your plants to be grown indoors. Wrong device to achieve an end!
