Curing the daily droop

I’m using Ocean Forest in 5 gal plastic. Weight range from dry to saturated is between about 13-23 pounds. I’ve been keeping it between 15-20 pounds vs run off saturated to near drooping dry. My leaves have not drooped since I started. That gives me the idea that moisture level in the pot might be causing the daily droop.

It’s probably DLI if it’s towards the end of the day. The plant has had enough photons of light and just goes to rest early. Especially if you have powerful lights.

I have new info on this. Another experiment revealed that watering effects the droop. My pot weighs 13-23, dry/saturated. I keep the weight between 15-20 pounds with watering. I’ve been using a bathroom scale.
The droop has disappeared completely. Unexpectedly. I was just trying to find out how much the plant uses in 24hrs. It doesn’t use any at night. Use seems to be 1.5-2 qts. per day.
